This was for Mercedes’ SHIMMER Championship.
This was a really effective and fun main event for SHIMMER on their most high-profile showcase of the year. Mercedes is a great dominating, heel champion. Candice plays the underdog challenger very well. They did a really nice job of timing all of Candice’s comebacks so that she had great momentum down the stretch.
The closing sequence was a bit unsatisfying with all the shenanigans, but they did at least not ruin the match. It did however seem like a silly idea to that kind of thing during a show where you are probably getting the most exposure to non-regular fans though. Mercedes put Candice away eventually with the fisherman buster. (***1/4)
