RISE – ASCENT Tapings in Pittsburgh May 12: What to Expect, VIP Passes and More!

The day is getting closer to what will be a historic day for RISE and, hopefully, one for all of Women’s Wrestling. Saturday, May 12 in Pittsburgh, we will tape the first six installments of our new, weekly episodic program RISE – ASCENT! Beginning at 1 PM, this will be a very full day of action!

We will begin taping Episode 1 at 1 PM. Each episode will be approximately 45-60 minutes in length, so we are looking at roughly 6 hours of matches featured today’s best and tomorrow’s brightest Women Wrestlers!

This is going to be a long, amazing day for all involved, but talent and fans alike will need a few breaks. We will take a few shorter intermissions throughout the day with one, longer primary intermission at the conclusion of Episode 3.

Each Episode will have “at least one” marquee match advertised ahead of the tapings. We will also have a many, many bouts that will be determined during the course of our Lights, Camera, ACTION: The Art of TV Seminar being held May 11 as well as other advertised talents with matches not yet announced. You can expect to see several talents wrestling more than once during the course of this taping.

Matches already set for the day…

Episode 1: IWC Women’s Champion Britt Baker vs. Tessa Blanchard

Episode 2: Kimber Lee vs. Shotzi Blackheart

Episode 3: Phoenix of RISE Champion Delilah Doom (If still champion after defending against Deonna Purrazzo at RISE 7 April 13) vs. Jessicka Havok

Episode 6: Mercedes Martinez vs. Deonna Purrazzo.

Also Appearing:

SHIMMER Champion Nicole Savoy

And many more to come!

“There will be many different ways we feature talents during RISE – ASCENT Episodes. Between what we have already announced, things we have not announced yet and Prospective Talents from the LCA Seminar, I cannot wait to see what our crew is able to create. Plus, with so many of the key minds both in front of and behind the camera with IMAPCT, this new extension of the RISE brand should be truly special,” said RISE Executive Producer, Kevin Harvey.
