Shine Wrestling

Started in July 2012 by Dave Prazak, the female-oriented wrestling extravaganza offers events on a monthly basis at The Orpheum nightclub in Ybor City with a number of wrestlers from the TNA and WWE organizations, including some former Diva Girls. Think backyard wrestling with scantily clad beauties who pull off gymnastic moves and outrageous stunts in a wrestling ring that sits in the middle of a dance floor, all while fans watch from an arm's length. When attending, be ready for wrestlers landing in your lap, taking a sip of your beer, or taking a pic with your smartphone. At the end, mingle and get autographs from the combatants.
