The RISE VIP Meet and Greets: What’s Included for Your $50?


Next Friday, November 10 in Berwyn, IL we begin the first of what we hope are many VIP Meet and Greets as part of RISE 5 – RISING SUN. We also have a VIP Meet and Greet on deck as part of RISE 6 – BRUTALITY in South Gate, CA December 1. Due a fair amount of fan inquiries in recent days, we wanted to share with fans what to expect and what is included with VIP Access prior to RISE events.

Both the RISE 5 and RISE 6 VIP Meet and Greets will be headlined by industry legends. RISE 5 will be Madusa and a Joshi Legend. RISE 6 will feature Madusa and Bull Nakano.

The $50 entry fee includes: 1 – 8×10 (provided by RISE) and signed by both legends. 1 – Photo op of your choice. The photo op can be with either Madusa, Joshi Legend (Bull Nakano for California) or both. Madusa will also be bringing her 1990’s WWE Women’s Championship to both RISE 5 and RISE 6, the very title from her infamous incident from WCW Monday Nitro. This title will also be able to part of the 1 included photo op.

Additional items to be signed are allowed, $10 each for up to 3 total additional signatures. Those wishing to have 1 of their own items signed in lieu of the provided 8×10 may do so.

For both our upcoming VIP Meet and Greets, many, many talents will be on hand. Guests in addition to the advertised legends have no additional fees as part of the Meet and Greet. However, talents will have their own merchandise available for purchase and prices are set by the individual talents, paid directly to the talents themselves.

“What we are really going for here is something special, a Meet and Greet with special guests that has a Convention feel, but not convention prices. Compared to just one upcoming convention, a VIP Experience featuring a famous Tag Team is in excess of $400! My hope is to give women’s wrestling fans chances to meet some of their favorite legends of all time and a chance to meet many of today’s top independents. I’m hoping fans will find $50 much more reasonable $350-$400,” said RISE Executive Producer, Kevin Harvey.

RISE 5’s VIP Meet and Greet features additional Joshi as well as all the advertised talent for RISE 5 – RISING SUN, many SHIMMER stars who will be in town already for SHIMMER Volumes 96-99 and the Prospective Talent Pool from our World Class Development Seminar.

RISE 6 will feature SHIMER Champion Mercedes Martinez, World of Stardom Champion Toni Storm, Kris Wolf, Jimmy Jacobs and many more TBA.

If you have any questions or clarifications on the RISE VIP Meet and Greet experience, please email, subject VIP.

We hope to see you all next week at RISE 5 and December 1 at RISE 6.
