Legends Developing and Scouting Tomorrow's Women Athletes

We are incredibly happy and extremely excited to announce our new partnership with WWE Hall of Famer Booker T’s Reality of Wrestling in Houston, Texas! This working relationship kicks off in a big way January 2019.

“Teaming with Reality of Wrestling is something that has me fired up. Booker T and his team are doing amazing things with their Diamonds Division and their Ladies Night Out Events. We’ve been fortunate to have several of the ROW women in our Seminars and part of our past events. Bringing these two companies together along with what I know is a deep Seminar Prospective Talent Pool in the State of Texas has me very excited to see just how huge this January weekend can truly be for Women’s Wrestling,” said RISE Executive Producer, Kevin Harvey.

Friday, January 18 we will host a World Class Development Seminar with facilitators IMPACT Wrestling Hall of Famer Gail Kim and The Matriarch of The Knight Dynasty Saraya Knight! This Seminar will be scouted and evaluated throughout by RISE and ROW Staff on hand, including Booker T. Immediate opportunities will be available for Seminar standouts on the RISE Live Event January 19. Booker T has also made it known he is keeping his eyes open for future female talents for Reality of Wrestling Events.

Full registration details will be available later this weekend!

Saturday, January 19, it will be a double shot of Live Events kicking off with RISE that afternoon and Reality of Wrestling that night. Talent details and ticket on-sale information will be coming in the very near future. We are currently verifying key talent availability. We can confirm at this time that Saraya Knight will be competing at the RISE Live Event.

Get ready for one heck of a fun weekend with RISE and Reality of Wrestling!

We have received a few, consistent questions the last few days, and we hope to clarify the confusion as best we can. Going into last Friday’s RISE 10 – INSANITY, we intended to announce our next event, which logically would be RISE 11 and was slated to be our return to the Los Angeles Market. But, as can often be the case in the our world, “Card Subject to Change.”

Our next event, RISE 12 – WE DON’T NEED ROADS, was set for South Gate, CA. We had the building secured and key talent committed, but we had a very big factor preventing us from running the date we had set – impossible travel booking situations. When attempted to book travel for key talents, nearly all flights needed were already sold out or were astronomically high priced. Returning to our loyal fans in Los Angeles is a top priority for us, but we have been forced to push the date of RISE 12 and possibly the location. We WILL return to Los Angeles in 2019 at a date yet to be determined.

Now, as for another question…what happened to RISE 11?

We had announced on our Social Media some time ago our next event would be RISE 11 – ONE LOUDER. We had begun a dialogue with representatives of potential special guests who would have been very fitting for an event entitled ONE LOUDER. However, due to current legal situations, on which we will not further comment, we will be skipping over RISE 11 – ONE LOUDER. We will only ever get one “11,” and we hope to one day present the event as planned and to do it right.

As a show of solidarity for our potential special guests, we will not be making any reference to or making any profits from RISE 11 – ONE LOUDER unless they are able to be a part.

Now, where and when will RISE 12 – WE DON’T NEED ROADS be? That is to be determined. We are working on a few possibilities for early 2019. We will get the word out as soon as locations and dates are set.

What we DO know, is this: The Fifth Phoenix of RISE “The Latina Sensation” Mercedes Martinez will defend her championship against Kylie Rae!

Los Angeles, we hope to see you soon! And there are a few new towns we might be seeing in the relatively near future as well.

Thank you fans for your patience and understanding!

In the shadow of the Chicago skyline, in a humble Eagles Club in Berwyn, IL, Tessa Blanchard and Mercedes Martinez battled tooth and nail in a 75 Minute Iron Woman Match, setting a record for the longest women’s professional wrestling match in history. This was advertised to be a 60 Minute Iron Woman Match. Just moments before fans were let into the building,  Executive Producers Kevin Harvey and Jimmy Jacobs announced live on Twitter the time limit had been extended and a new world record would be set in the Main Event of RISE 10 – INSANITY.

Results from RISE 10 – INSANITY, now available for $9.99 Digital Download at riseascent.com and DVD and Blu-ray of The Live Edit are available for $10 at pipeline.ecwid.com:

Karen Q defeated Kimber Lee

Jessicka Havok, Nevaeh, Allysin Kay and Dynamite DiDi defeated Alex Gracia, Myka, Layne Rosario and Nikki Victory in a 4-on-4 Tag Team Elimination Match.

Queen vs. Queen – Jinny defeated Madison Rayne

Cheerleader Melissa and Rain banded together to co-win their Triple Threat Match against Double D Rose

Bones of Contention (Karen Q and Ray Lyn) defeated Colt Cabana and RJ City with David Arquette and “welcomed” David Arquette to the rings of RISE after the match.

Paradise Lost (Raven’s Ash and Dust) with Rosemary retained The Guardians of RISE Tag Team Championships in a brutal Rosemary’s Rules match against Balls of DOOM (Shotzi Blackheart and Delilah Doom). After the match, Paradise was poised to enact potentially career-ending injuries to Shotzi Blackheart. Delilah Doom, after nearly two years of torment at the hand of Rosemary, willingly surrendered herself to the Shadow to save her friend Shotzi Blackheart.

In the Main Event of the evening, Mercedes Martinez defeated Tessa Blanchard in a 75 Minute Iron Woman match to become The Fifth Phoenix of RISE Champion.

It was Queen vs. Queen as Madison Rayne took in Jinny!

We have received many inquiries the last two weeks asking specifically if RISE 10 – INSANITY will be streamed live Friday, October 19. For reasons we cannot fully discuss, we are unable to stream this particular event live due to the unique combination of talent we have assembled for this card.

However…

We will have the full Live Event of RISE 10 – INSANITY available for purchase through riseascent.com and our Apps on iOS and Android nearly immediately following the conclusion of the Main Event. We will be uploading a Live Edit of RISE 10 including commentary before we leaving the Berwyn Eagles Club. This Live Edit will be available for purchase for $9.99.

Within a few days, a full, post-produced edit will be available, including a more detailed edit of the Live Event and all backstage interviews and vignettes filmed throughout the day, telling the most complete story of RISE 10 – INSANITY will be available through riseascent.com and our Apps on iOS and Android. This version of RISE 10 will also be available on DVD and Blu-ray through pipeline.ecwid.com and smartmarkvideo.com.

With the matches already announced and several not yet finalized, we fully expect fans and industry insiders to consider this event “can’t-miss.” We are making every effort possible to bring this to fans worldwide in the most timely manner given live streaming or broadcast is not an option.

The Live Edit will not be included in the RISE – ASCENT monthly subscription, however, the final, complete edit will be in time.

We are looking to make a big noise and turn some heads this Friday in Berwyn, IL! If you want to see it LIVE, act fast. If you can get to Chicago, we are down to our last few tickets and VIP passes at pipeline.ecwid.com!

David Arquette is unable to appear at RISE 10 – INSANITY this Friday, October 19 in Berwyn, IL. David sends his apologies along with news for RJ City as well as fans in the video above.

A large part of the tumultuous team of Arquette City’s working arrangement centered around David’s promise to RJ of an appearance on a talk show. It would appear from this video David will make good on this promise and has booked RJ City on a talk show that will be happening in the ring at RISE 10.

RJ City will still be competing, but who will the partner be? Who will the opponents be? Many in The Lethal Lottery of Ladies have withdrawn their names with the prospect of getting their hands on David Arquette being off the table. What match will be made in the wake of these changes?

We look forward to finding out the answers to many of these questions at RISE 10!

For fans who purchased VIP Passes that included Photos Ops with David Arquette, RISE is providing the following options and accommodations.

For fans who purchased VIP Option 2: 

You may either substitute Option 1, the in-ring photo op with the stars of RISE. Or, upon request, we will be offering full refunds on Option 2 purchases only.
