At SHINE 9, four women – Saraya Knight, Rain, Jessicka Havok & Jazz – qualified for the promotion’s upcoming title tournament due to take place in July. On May 24, the remaining four women will compete to qualify as part of the SHINE 10 lineup.
Fresh off her victory in the main event of SHINE 9, Leva Bates will look to get into the title hunt when she faces Valkyrie member Taylor Made. Elsewhere, the loser of the Arkham Asylum Cage Match, Kimberly, will look to get back to winning ways when she takes on SHINE’s rising star and ultimate baby face Santana Garrett.
Mercedes Martinez – who seems to have incurred the ire of Daffney through her actions at SHINE 9 where she gatecrashed and spoiled Nikki Roxx‘s birthday celebration – wrestles Mia Yim, who was part of the main event of SHINE 8 and was a sixth of the trios tag at SHINE 9, while Roxx rounds off the last of the qualifying matches, when she steps into the ring against Taylor’s Made In Sin tag team partner and fellow Valkyrie member Allysin Kay.
However, one woman who is not part of the tournament, despite demands that she be considered is Portia Perez, who used her Twitter account to make a number of (unreasonable) demands ahead of her participation. So far, they are:
1. Three Chipotle burrito bowls (vegetarian).
2. A flight that will allow my dogs on board. In the cabin. Not in cargo.
3. An interpreter to translate all the hillbilly accents in Florida.
4. A PETA-certified vegan wrestling mat.
5. A cookie-baking robot.
6. 36 Rockstar Energy drinks.
7. Indiana Jones Monopoly. Sealed. Mint condition.
8. Honey Nut Cheerios.
9. The LEGO Arkham Asylum.
10. A World War II-era Yugoslavian aircraft.
We will see what role Perez will play on the show, as well as what Daffney has planned after resigning as the live event hostess, ring announcer and possibly commentary role. Also booked to appear are other Valkyrie stablemates Rain & Ivelisse Velez, as well as Angelina Love, the debuting Amber O’Neal, Jessicka Havok, Heidi Lovelace (who Stew spoke to recently in the latest Fight Like A Girl interview), Sojo Bolt, Jessie Belle and Luscious Latasha.
