Match-of-the-Day: Nicole Matthews v Hiroyo Matsumoto

Arguably the two best wrestlers (25-and-under) in the world.  Yeah there is Jessie McKay and Britani Knight and Misaki Ohaka, but Nicole and Hiroyo have the size, skill, fitness, and technique to defeat anyone on a given day.  They both should have SHIMMER singles title shots, and Hiroyo got one on SHIMMER taping volume 42.  Nicole is itching to get a shot against Cheerleader Melissa on Volumes 45-48. These young superstars treated the SHIMMER faithful to a crackerjack 10 minute match with physicality and emotion -- a very nice lead-up to the title bout on Vol. 41 between Serena and Madison Eagles.
