VIP Meet and Greet and Afterparty Info for RISE 9 This Saturday!


Many have asked, and after dealing with some pressing issues the last few days, we can finally announce both the VIP Meet and Greet and Official Afterparty for RISE 9 – RISE of The Knockouts this Saturday, July 7 in Naperville, IL!

At RISE 9, we will open doors for VIPs at 6 PM. VIPs will receive their wristbands at the door. VIPs will be entitled to an in-ring photo with the roster of RISE 9 and 1 free DVD or Blu-ray from the merchandise table. After moving through the VIP line, talent will be available for photos and merchandise individually. Cost for this VIP Meet and Greet is $30 per person.

Due to the live stream on Twitch, we will be unable to take an intermission during the course of RISE 9 – RISE of The Knockouts.

For those unable to make the VIP Meet and Greet who would still like the chance to meet talent and purchase merchandise, we have landed an official afterparty taking place immediately following the conclusion of RISE 9.

Draft Picks of Naperville will be the scene, located at 523 Fairway Drive practically next door to Illinois Basketball Academy, just before the traffic light at Route 59 and North Aurora.  For information on the afterparty venue, please visit their website: RISE 9 will have a relatively early conclusion compared to past RISE events, so there should be ample time for the afterparty.

RISE – ASCENT Tapings July 8 will have a full intermission. RISE – ASCENT features all talents from RISE 9 and adds Jessicka Havok and Nevaeh to the mix as well.
