If there are a few things we love at RISE, providing opportunities for attendees of our World Class Development Seminars and very real, feel-good moments for our performers are pretty high on our list! This Tuesday in Winter Park, Florida at A Nice Day in Orlando, we will have both!
RISE Officials and WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley will be identifying talents from our February 19 Seminar to receive opportunities to perform at our RISE – ASCENT Tapings later that night. And, for one Seminar Participant, there will be something more.
One of the performers at RISE – A Nice Day in Orlando will be picked by Mick Foley himself to be part of LEGENDARY March 29 in Chicago, our iPPV showcasing the largest roster of Women Wrestlers ever assembled for a single event! “Mick’s Pick” will be entered into RISE of The Contender, the 30 Woman Battle Royal with the winner receiving a guaranteed shot at The Phoenix of RISE at an event she will be able to name.
True to RISE form, “Mick’s Pick” will not have prior knowledge before they are informed in front of the live audience and cameras. We do not yet know how or where this will happen during the course of Tuesday’s ASCENT Tapings, but it will most certainly be a very special moment for that talent and the fans in Orlando.
“We’ve had some great, organic moments in RISE History. You simply cannot produce moments like the RISE 6 announcement of talents going to Japan or AQA being informed in Houston she was the newest member of the RISE and SHIMMER Rosters, her trainer Booker T setting the stage for the announcement. This will be one of those moments. Mick Foley is, without a doubt, one of the biggest supporters of Women’s Wrestling. An industry icon and, frankly, a hero to many of these young women, at some point in the show will be letting one of them know they are his personal pick to receive future opportunity at the largest stage in RISE history. That is going to be a very special moment indeed,” said RISE Executive Producer, Kevin Harvey.
