Evie challenges for SHINE Championship

150930_evieNew Zealand’s Evie will receive a shot at an international title on her latest overseas tour.

The 27-year-old challenges Santana Garrett for the SHINE Championship in the main event of SHINE 30 this weekend.

The event, broadcast live on iPPV from Florida, is Evie’s fifth with the promotion and marks her first shot at the title.

SHINE Vice President Lexie Fyfe made the announcement last week.

“SHINE 30 is one of our international showcases, so in keeping with tradition we will be granting a title match for one of our international superstars,” Fyfe said, before announcing Evie as the number one contender to Garrett’s title.

Santana Garrett is the current SHINE and NWA World Women’s Champion. She defeated Mia Yim to win the SHINE Championship at SHINE 26 in April 2015, and has defended the title against Mia Yim and Allysin Kay at previous SHINE events.

Evie last wrestled for SHINE at SHINE 26, where she defeated Tessa Blanchard.

Besides Evie, several other international talents will wrestle on the SHINE 30 iPPV broadcast, including Australia’s Kellyanne, Madison Eagles, and Shazza McKenzie.

SHINE 30 takes place at The Orpheum in Ybor City, Florida this Saturday, October 3 from 2pm (NZDT). To order the live iPPV broadcast, click here.
