The RISE fanbase worldwide was able to meet many new talents in 2018, talents discovered in our World Class Development Seminars and given opportunities to perform on RISE Live Events and Episodes of RISE – ASCENT.

RISE will be bringing in *at least* one of the new talents discovered in 2018 Seminars to Chicago March 29 to take place in the RISE of The Contender Match as part of RISE 13 – LEGENDARY.

Regina “Honey” Badger received top voting for Seminar Discovery Debut of the Year for 2018 and will be in Berwyn, IL for RISE 13 in a match yet to be determined. We want to see more of these Seminar Discoveries return, but we want to leave that decision up to YOU, the RISE fanbase!

Voting is now open at! Make your selection using the form and let us know who YOUR favorite 2018 Seminar Discovery was and the top vote recipient will be part of RISE 13 in RISE of The Contender!

Happy Voting!


March 29, 2019 in Berwyn, IL at RISE 13 – LEGENDARY, 30 Women Athletes will enter, but only 1 can win the first ever RISE of The Contender Match!

Before the event March 29, women will draw numbers 1-30. We will begin the match with those who drew numbers 1-2. A new participant will be added to the match every 2 minutes. Participants will be eliminated by being thrown over the top rope and both feet touching the floor of the Berwyn Eagles Club. The last woman standing will not only be the winner of the match, but she will also become next in line for her shot at The Phoenix of RISE Championship!

With March 29 kicking off another HUGE RISE and SHIMMER Weekend Double Shot, you never know who might pop up in this ordered-entry Battle Royal! With possibilities from talents already announced and invitations we have sent out to others in the industry, this match could prove to be one of the more unique combinations of women wrestlers ever assembled in one place!

The stakes have been raised for The Prospective Talent Pool in the RISE 12 World Class Development Seminar January 18 in Texas City, Texas near Houston. In addition to a full day of training with Phoenix of RISE Mercedes Martinez, Saraya Knight and RISE Executive Producer Jimmy Jacobs, it was already known that several talents will be utilized on the co-promoted Live Event between RISE and Reality of Wrestling January 19. But now, more opportunity lies ahead for one Seminar talent.

SHIMMER Executive Producer Dave Prazak will be on hand to assist in event production and to scout talent in the Seminar. Dave and RISE Executive Producer Kevin Harvey will come to an agreement on one talent who will be brought to Chicago March 29-31 to be part of RISE 13 – LEGENDARY and to make their SHIMMER debut over the course of the weekend’s tapings. The talent selected will be announced before the end of our January weekend in Texas.

“There is so much talent in Texas right now. I’ve been lucky enough to meet many of the region’s Women Athletes at the RISE on the Road Seminars in the last year in Austin. Now, it’s time to invest more of our resources into talent in that market. And it’s also time to help one of those Texas talents break out into new markets and new promotions,” said Harvey.
