Shine 10 Invades Ybor City Florida – May 23rd, 2013 – Today in Wrestling History

in #sports2 years ago

Shine Wrestling (SHINE) is an independent promotion that is based out of New York City, New York. SHINE is an all-women’s sister promotion to Shimmer Women Athletes. What is interesting about this company is who they work with. Do not discount the women that have come through these doors either.

Setting itself apart

First being an all-women’s promotion is still unique. There simply are not that many around. For the most part, women’s wrestling is still presented as secondary to men’s competition. That has not stopped many female athletes from attempting to break the glass ceiling.

This was not a Pay Per View (PPV) event. While SHINE did do PPV’s they were not available by traditional means. PPV’s were made available via Internet Pay Per View (IPPV). For other Pay Per View events, check here.
