Our World Class Development Seminars have proven to be a finding ground for Tomorrow’s Women Athletes. We have been able to identify and develop a new generation for RISE, SHIMMER and more. The time has come to expand the program and open our arms to developing even more professional wrestling talent.

Due to a high amount of inquiries and amounts of remaining seats in upcoming Seminars, effective immediately, all RISE Seminars are now open to all trained and active wrestlers and performers of support roles, women and men.

“Our brand of development can help many people, and the time has come to expand what we do. This change is all about opening the learning and development to as many talents as possible, not altering current plans with RISE – Developing Tomorrow’s Women Athletes Events. RISE – ASCENT will still be a 100% Women’s Wrestling Program. The RISE numbered events will still be predominantly women competitors with an occasional intergender match. Future opportunities for men discovered from our program will be different from the current plans for RISE Women’s Events,” clarified RISE Executive Producer, Kevin Harvey.

So, all wrestlers and support roles everywhere, registration is now open for you, including May 12 in Pittsburgh’s Lights, Camera, ACTION: The Art of TV with IMPACT Wrestling’s Jimmy Jacobs, Sonjay Dutt, Gail Kim and Scott D’Amore as well as June 29 in Los Angeles’ RISE 8 – OUTBACK with Madison Eagles and Nicole Matthews.

May 12 is an important day for RISE and for Women’s Wrestling as we take our bold, next step. We will tape the first six episodes of RISE – ASCENT, the first weekly, episodic content of the modern era with 100% of it’s matches and content devoted to women’s wrestling.

Already announced prior, IMPACT Knockout Sienna will provide color commentary for RISE – ASCENT. But, until today, it was not publicly known who else would be joining the team.

We are extremely excited to announce Lexie Fyfe will be joining Sienna May 12 at RISE – ASCENT in Pittsburgh!

“Lexie Fyfe is an incredibly important figure in women’s wrestling for so many reasons. She has been an integral part of every key women’s promotion both in front of and behind the camera. To have someone with the skills of Lexie as part of our events and lending her perspective to our viewers adds tremendous value to talent and fans,” said RISE Executive Producer, Kevin Harvey.

RISE – ASCENT’s first episode is slated to drop May 30 at riseascent.com. Subscribe today for just $4.99 to get all prior RISE Live Events, including RISE 7 – SENSATION!

Fans in the Pittsburgh area, we want you to be part of this landmark day for women’s independent wrestling! Joins us, won’t you? Tickets: pipeline.ecwid.com.

ROTKO Chart.001

With tickets on-sale for RISE 9 – RISE of the Knockouts and RISE – ASCENT Tapings July 7 and 8 in Naperville, IL, we wanted to share an approximate seating arrangement as this will be a significantly larger scale event than anything attempted previously.

We say approximate for two reasons. One: This is the owners¬†very crude hand at trying to make a seating chart… Two: The venue, the Illinois Basketball Academy, has a great deal of flexibility to add more seating. If more seating is needed, we will increase the overall size of the arena and add additional General Admission seating only.

Tickets available for both days now at pipeline.ecwid.com. Coming later this week, we hope to be able to share more talent announcements, including what additional IMPACT Knockouts will be joining the fun!

RISE IMPACT.001

As announced by IMPACT Hall of Famer and Knockouts Producer Gail Kim and RISE Executive Producer Kevin Harvey at RISE 7 last Friday, IMPACT and RISE will be promoting a joint venture in Naperville, IL known as RISE 9 – RISE of the Knockouts! This IMPACT on Twitch Special happens July 7! Tickets are now on sale at pipeline.ecwid.com.

At RISE of the Knockouts, we will crown the first ever Guardians of RISE – The RISE Tag Team Champions! The first wave of talent announcements include…

Fire and Nice – Britt Baker and Chelsea Green

Paradise Lost – Melanie Cruise and Heart of SHIMMER Champion Dust with Rosemary

Wily Smilies – Kylie Rae and Miranda Alize

And many more TBA, including representatives of IMPACT’s Knockouts Division!

Then, July 8, we tape the next six episodes of RISE – ASCENT, our weekly program of women’s wrestling, first-run episodes available exclusively at riseascent.com and later on Global Wrestling Network. RISE ¬†– ASCENT episodes begin May 30. Tickets for RISE – ASCENT Tapings also now on sale at pipeline.ecwid.com.

Both days will take place at the Illinois Basketball Academy located at 460 Industrial Drive in Naperville, IL. IBA is just a brief walk from the Route 59 Metra Train Station and just off the IL 59 Exit of I-88.

We look forward to packing the house for two amazing days of women’s professional wrestling!

This has been a rough week for us, but we’d like to turn the one negative into a whole lot more positives for RISE and, more importantly, our fans!

Second, those who had purchased VIP Passes before this week’s changes, we will still honor the original promotion of a personalized 8×10 provided by RISE and in-ring photo op with WWE Hall of Famer Madusa and IMPACT Wrestling Hall of Famer Gail Kim. This photo is a very unique opportunity as this is the only time Madusa and Gail Kim have ever appeared together in any capacity.

After working with the Berwyn Eagles Club to add additional seating for RISE 7 – SENSATION Friday, April 13, we have once again SOLD OUT this event. There will be no more added seating. If, and this is a hearty if, we are able to allow more people in the building the day of the show on a walk-up ticket, it will be standing room only.

For those who do not want to miss out on the action, subscribe today to riseascent.com. The Hard Camera Live Stream of RISE 7 with Commentary by Veda Scott and Sienna will be included in the $4.99 monthly subscription.

Thank you Chicago fans and those traveling to the area for already making this another landmark event for RISE. Our second sellout in advance feels good, especially on our “home court” in Berwyn!
