Shimmer Tag Team Championship - History


Since the creation of the Shimmer Championship, there was a growing interest in creating a Shimmer Tag Team Championship. This was stemmed from a growing number of teams such as The Experience and the Minnesota Home Wrecking Crew, and frequent tag team matches on the cards of Shimmer events. In October 2008, the first champions were crowned when the duo of Ashley Lane and Nevaeh won a Gauntlet Match involving six teams at Shimmer Volume 21.

Lane and Nevaeh as well as being the first Shimmer Tag Team Champions also hold the distinction of being the first Shimmer champions to defend their title outside of Shimmer or either of its sister companies (Full Impact Pro and Ring of Honor). On November 1, Lane and Nevaeh defended their title at an Insanity Pro Wrestling show against "Sassy" Stephie Sinclair and Hellena Heavenly. On November 22 they made their third defense of the belts at an Heartland Wrestling Association event, defeating the team of Mary Elizabeth and Hailey Hatred.

After successfully defending the title in Shimmer against the Canadian NINJAs (Nicole Matthews and Portia Perez), The International Home Wrecking Crew (Jetta and Rain) and Amazing Kong and Sara Del Rey, Lane and Nevaeh lost the title to the Canadian NINJAs in a rematch on May 3, 2009, at the tapings of Shimmer Volume 26.

Nicole Matthews and Portia Perez made their first Shimmer Tag Team Title defense on October 18, 2009, at an Anarchy Championship Wrestling event titled A Nightmare on Tenth Street, where they defeated Rachel Summerlyn and Jessica James via disqualification.

On April 10, 2010, at the tapings of Volume 29, Matthews and Perez made their first Shimmer Tag Team Title defense in Shimmer, defeating the team of Cheerleader Melissa and Shimmer Champion MsChif.

On April 2, 2011, Daizee Haze and Tomoka Nakagawa defended the title for the first time on pay-per-view as part of Ring of Honor's Honor Takes Center Stage event in Atlanta, Georgia, defeating the team of Ayumi Kurihara and Hiroyo Matsumoto.

On February 22, 2012, Ayako Hamada and Ayumi Kurihara defended the title for the first time outside of North America, when they defeated Hiroyo Matsumoto and Misaki Ohata at a Joshi 4 Hope event in Tokyo, Japan.

On July 7, 2012, the Canadian NINJAs won the title for the second time, making them the first team (and individuals in Matthews and Perez) in Shimmer history to do so with any of their championships, when they defeated Courtney Rush and Sara Del Rey for the championships at NCW Femmes Fatales in Montreal, Quebec, Canada - which also meant that a Shimmer championship changed hands outside of Berwyn and the United States for the first time. They lost the title to the Global Green Gangsters (Kellie Skater and Tomoka Nakagawa) on Volume 57, making Nakagawa also a two-time champion.
