Official Announcement: RISE 1 – IGNITE!


Announcing RISE – Developing Tomorrow’s Women Athletes

On November 10, 2016 Kevin Harvey – WPWC in association with SHIMMER Women Athletes presents the debut concept “RISE – Developing Tomorrow’s Women Athletes.” This unique event offers unprecedented opportunity for women wrestlers aspiring to learn from the best in the industry and have their work evaluated by some of the most influential minds in women’s independent wrestling.

The event will occur in two parts, one for performers only and the other for performers and fans. The debut of RISE will collectively be known as “RISE 1 – IGNITE.” For updates and discussion on social media, please use the hashtag #RISE1.

Both parts of the day will occur at the world famous Berwyn Eagles Club, located at 6309 W. 26th St., Berwyn, IL 60402.

Part One – World Class Development Seminar

RISE was born from a passion for training and development of the next generation of amazing women wrestlers. The inaugural seminar pulls no punches and provides not one, but two of the best instructors you will find anywhere in the world.

Together, the instructors bring a combined 43 years experience spanning promotions around the globe. With their pedigree and high profile careers, they fit the mold of “truly needing no introduction.”

Our instructors for “RISE 1 – IGNITE” are COLT CABANA and SARAYA KNIGHT!!!

Report time to the Eagles Club is 12 PM with the seminar beginning at 1 PM.

Seats are limited for this seminar and we have already received a large number of inquiries. Based on preliminary interest, this seminar is fully expected to sell out. Early registration is strongly recommended.

Registration fee is $50.

Part Two – RISE 1 – IGNITE Live Event

A live event will be produced featuring the top 10-12 participants from the seminar. Bell time for the live event is 8 PM.

For fans who have been asking for additional SPARKLE matches at SHIMMER or any variant of the “tryout show” this is the event for you! This live event exclusively features fresh, new talent looking to increase their exposure in the world of professional wrestling.

For performers, this will be an amazing opportunity for visibility. Not only will you perform in front of SHIMMER fans, but we will also have a ringside panel of dignitaries of the women’s wrestling world.
