Last night at RISE 8 – OUTBACK in South Gate, CA, Phoenix of RISE Champion Delilah Doom defended the title against former Champion, Shotzi Blackheart. In an all-out war that saw action spill everywhere inside and outside of the ring, the twenty-minute time limit expired. Both competitors wanted five more minutes, fans chanted for five more minutes. Five more minutes were granted, followed by an immediate onslaught by Paradise Lost and Rosemary, causing the match to be thrown out.
Delilah will once again defend The Phoenix of RISE against Shotzi Saturday, July 7 in Naperville, only this time, they have received more time as requested as these two women will compete in a 30-Minute Iron Woman Match!
Last night, things heated up once more between The Second and Third Phoenix of RISE.
A battle rich in history, The Knockouts Title shall be contested as The Creation defends against The Creator. IMPACT Knockouts Champion “The Bloody Undead Bride” Su Yung defends against The Godmother of RISE, Saraya Knight in a FALLS COUNT ANYWHERE MATCH!
Those familiar with the sordid past between these two women know this match will be something to be hold…from the absolutely safest possible distance away.
RISE 8 set the stage for much to happen at RISE 9, including this Four Corners Elimination match to crown the first-ever Guardians of RISE Tag Team Champions!
Paradise Lost with Rosemary defeated Fight for Evers
Team Blue Nation defeated The Killer Baes
Wily Smilies defeated Nicole Matthews and Ayoka Muharah (Matthews selection from the Seminar to replace Madison Eagles).
Britt Baker defeated Bones of Contention, allowing Fire and Nice to advance to the final!
Tessa Blanchards is Undeniable. Kris Wolf is Born in America, Made in Japan. These two are no strangers to one another. Today of today’s brightest lock horns one more time at RISE of The Knockouts!
They have met before, but this time circumstances are much different. Allie has seen much change and great success, recently winning the Knockouts Championship. Mercedes Martinez has put herself back on the winning track at RISE 8, defeating Kris Wolf, Shazza McKenzie and Kimber Lee in a Four Way Elimination Match. With the momentum of each woman coming into this event, who will be the one who finds victory?
One of the most decorated Knockouts in IMPACT History, Madison Rayne comes to RISE. With a rich history of competition in the Chicago Area, this is a homecoming of sorts for Rayne. Her opponent at RISE 9 will be “The Fallen Flower” Kikyo. Though Kikyo has been a cornerstone of RISE events and as familiar to our audience, she is a relative unknown to IMPACT fans and possibly to Madison Rayne. But, is that to Kikyo’s advantage?
Due to illness, Madison Eagles was unable to travel to the United States. We wish her the best in a speedy recovery as nothing will ever trump the importance of the well being of our talent.
This match will now be a one on one contest between Kimber Lee and Shazza McKenzie. In the Four Way Elimination Match at RISE 8, Kimber found herself eliminated by Shazza. Kimber stayed and ringside and waited for the opportune time to attach Shazza, opening the door of opportunity for Mercedes Martinez to score the elimination. These two meet with bad blood already starting to boil between them.
Red hot at the situation and with one another (per usual) after a loss to the solo Britt Baker of Fire and Nice, the Bones of Contention are looking to get mack into immediate title contention for the Guardians of RISE. Could they do so with a victory over the Holidead and Thunder Rosa, Twizted Sisterz? The most requested Tag Team since the announcement of The Tag Team Awakening is finally together in RISE. Find out just how wild these two teams can get July 7!
And in other matches for our RISE – ASCENT Tapings (many more matches will be happening…likely a total of 24-26 in all July 8)…
Due to absence due to illness, Madison Eagles is unable to be at RISE – ASCENT, taking her place in this match will be Madison Rayne! (Graphic change pending…still on the road in Los Angeles)
