Since the announcement of David Arquette’s participation in our RISE 10 World Class Development Seminar October 19 in Berwyn, IL, we have received many questions, comments and concerns via Social Media and our email and message inboxes. But those numbers are nothing in comparison to the high volume of requests we have received from women wrestlers who want the opportunity to welcome David to the rings of RISE.

With the announcement of David’s reluctant tag team partner RJ City joining the fold and bringing their open challenge to industry tag teams to RISE, even more women have stepped forward. Several have made direct reference to RJ City’s plea to “Put us out of my misery.”

With an overwhelming amount of RISE competitors and several who have not yet stepped foot inside our rings pleading their case, there seemed only one fair way to determine who would be on the opposite side of the ring from the team collectively known as Arquette City at RISE 10 – INSANITY.

Announcing: The Lethal Lottery of Ladies!

“We’ve thought through the current scenarios from every angle, and all women make excellent cases. Then when we think, “We’ve got it,” another email comes in, presenting another incredibly interesting scenario. The Lethal Lottery of Ladies seemed the only fair way to make the final decision. The Lethal Lottery of Ladies is open to all RISE Talent not currently advertised in a match for RISE 10, the entire Prospective Talent Pool from the RISE 10 Seminar and any other women wrestlers who may find their way to Berwyn October 19,” said RISE Executive Producer, Kevin Harvey.

The drawing of both opponents who will face David Arquette and RJ City will take place during the Live Event of RISE 10 – INSANITY.

What two women wrestlers will face Arquette City? See for yourself October 19 in Berwyn, IL near Chicago at RISE 10 – INSANITY!

Upon hearing the news David Arquette had joined the World Class Development Seminar for RISE 10 – INSANITY, many fans as well as those inside the business expressed their opinions. Among the first of those to share their thoughts was pro wrestler RJ City, simply stating, “This is a gigantic mistake.”

Since their war of words spilled into the rings of Championship Wrestling from Hollywood, RJ has begun teaming with David. Collectively known as Arquette City, it seems David is far more enthusiastic about the team than RJ. In fact, in a Tweet dated September 3, RJ accompanied a photo of Arquette City simply captioned, “This is an open challenge to any team out there to put us out of my misery.”

RISE Officials have elected to allow the Arquette City Open Challenge to be part of RISE 10 – INSANITY in Berwyn, IL October 19. With our focus on The Tag Team Awakening this year, which of our many teams will step up to the challenge? Or, will there be a new female team who will come forward and stand face to face with Arquette City?

A number of our stars have already volunteered to welcome David Arquette to the rings of RISE. Now, it is only a matter of seeing what combination of two women it will be.

Arquette City vs. Two of Today’s Best, Tomorrow’s Brightest Women Athletes at RISE 10 – INSANITY!

One of the most controversial figures in the vast history of professional wrestling, unlikely former world heavyweight champion David Arquette, has joined the RISE 10 – INSANITY World Class Development Seminar October 19 in Berwyn, IL with SHIMMER Originals Mercedes Martinez, Rain, Cheerleader Melissa and Lexie Fyfe. And, as such, David Arquette’s name is now among those in The Prospective Talent Pool for the RISE 10 Live Event later that evening.

For those unfamiliar with RISE or The Pool, The Prospective Talent Pool is made up of attendees of our World Class Development Seminar who may be chosen as opponents for a number of wrestling talents slated to appear at RISE 10.

So far, announced talents who currently have open contracts for matches October 19 include Dynamite DiDi, Miranda Alize, Allysin Kay, Cheerleader Melissa, Rain, Jessicka Havok, Nevaeh and more yet to be announced.

“I know the decision to allow David in this Seminar will be a polarizing one. After speaking with David’s representatives, I firmly believe he has genuine interest in learning more about the incredibly complex world of professional wrestling. And, if David wants to have a match in RISE, he will have to do the same as everyone else in the Seminar. David will have to show us, and more importantly his prospective opponents, what he has got,” said RISE Executive Producer, Kevin Harvey.

Wrestling talent, there is very limited room in the RISE 10 Seminar, register today at rise-wrestling.com/seminar.

Fans, tickets are available at pipeline.ecwid.com. Front Row is sold out, Second Row is nearly gone. Act fast as sellout in advance is anticipated for this event.

The card for RISE 10 – INSANITY thus far includes the Main Event, a 60 Minute Iron Woman Match for The Phoenix of RISE Championship as Tessa Blanchard defends against Mercedes Martinez. The Guardians of RISE Tag Team Championships will be on the line as Raven’s Ash and Dust, collectively known Paradise Lost with Rosemary defend against Balls of DOOM, the team of Delilah Doom and Shotzi Blackheart. We also present Queen vs. Queen as Madison Rayne takes on Jinny!

RISE 10 – INSANITY will be available for streaming and download immediately following the event’s conclusion at riseascent.com and on RISE – ASCENT The App for iOS and Android. 7 Day FREE Trials for new subscribers are still active, $4.99 per month after trial.

The RISE Team is just coming off a wild and crazy 9 day journey that was the most recent RISE – ASCENT Tapings in Orlando, Florida! Thanks to Alex Pourteau and the team at Pro Wrestling 2.0 in Winter Park, Florida, we were able to confirm the taping venue of Quinco Sports Academy. 9 days later, we taped 5 Episodes of RISE – ASCENT. It. was. INSANITY, and well ahead of RISE 10! In 9 days, all talent was booked, travel arranged, ticket sales promoted, and 5 weeks of content created, produced and delivered.

9 days. It’s still unreal to us, but thanks to our amazing crew of Women Athletes and all our supporting players who are just as crazy as us, sharing our vision, we did it!

RISE – ASCENT Episode 15-19 are now in post-production. Episode 15 drops September 26 at riseascent.com and RISE – ASCENT The App on iOS and Android. These Episodes most definitely enhance the stories being told at RISE 10 – INSANITY October 19 in Berwyn, IL.

We will still have new content dropping in the weeks in between. RISE 8 drops September 12, RISE 9 September 19.

These Orlando Tapings saw the debuts of 10 total talents in RISE, the majority discovered in our September 5 Seminar with Jimmy Jacobs and Kevin Harvey. RISE – ASCENT has proven to be the best possible way for us to work in and develop new talent, staying true to our mission of building a worldwide pipeline of talent for all of professional wrestling, Developing Tomorrow’s Women Athletes.

And now, we turn to everyone in our network, friends, colleagues and fans. Based on what we were able to accomplish in Orlando and the costs associated with it, we have a new goal.

If we can somehow, some way achieve between 700-1000 additional subscribers to RISE – ASCENT, then the entire project of continuing weekly episodic women’s wrestling will become completely self-sustaining, guaranteeing our ability to continue producing RISE – ASCENT for a very long time.

And to do that, we are moving 100% of our subscription based video streaming services to riseascent.com, RISE – ASCENT The App for iOS and Android, and eventually Apple TV and Roku. Once a user is subscribed with one account, they can use any and all of these services with one login.

This also means that effective October 1, we are discontinuing our subscription services on Twitch. Messages were sent to our Twitch fanbase September 1. Though Twitch will still allow subscriptions, we will no longer be delivering new content to Twitch after October 1 and the video archive will be removed later in the month. We will from time to time still utilize Twitch to stream past events or special events.

We see it daily in discussions on Social Media that fans want weekly, women’s wrestling. We’ve been delivering just that since May. We just need to get the product in front of more eyes.

And here’s one way we will do it.

Right now, through riseascent.com or RISE – ASCENT The App for iOS and Android, all new signups will receive a 7 Day FREE Trial of RISE – ASCENT!

Please help us share this with the world!

We have some of the best women’s wrestling you’ll find, showcasing Today’s Best, Tomorrow’s Brightest.

Now, let’s prove it to an even bigger fanbase.

Thank you for your ongoing support of RISE – DEVELOPING Tomorrow’s Women Athletes!

This Thursday, September 6 in Winter Park, Florida in the Orlando Market, we tape the next several episodes of our weekly program, RISE – ASCENT. Tickets are only $10-$20 and available at pipeline.ecwid.com.

For a multitude of business reasons, we want to make taping episodes of RISE – ASCENT in the Orlando area a regular event! And in order to do that, we need to have as much success straight out of the gate as possible. Florida wrestling fans, please share the word and join us for a fun-filled night of women’s wrestling!

“In the bigger picture, we need to establish a regular taping schedule for RISE – ASCENT to honor our commitment to providing subscribers new content every week. From it’s inception, we hoped to establish a regular taping rhythm, possibly in a few key markets. If we can hit a home run in Orlando, we hope to make that a primary, if not exclusive market for tapings if RISE – ASCENT.

There are a number of young, hungry talents in the southeast United States with a heavy concentration in Florida. Through ASCENT, we hope to develop new talent, establish new stars and build stories for our larger scale events such as RISE 10 – INSANITY. Jimmy Jacobs and I want to see as many new faces as possible as we hope to bring many new opportunities to Tomorrow’s Women Athletes, continuing to utilize Today’s Best, Tomorrow’s Brightest,” said RISE Executive Producer, Kevin Harvey.

Our Seminar with Jimmy Jacobs and Kevin Harvey this Wednesday, September 5 in Winter Park, FL still has a few seats left and is open to men and women in all wrestling performance roles. Several opportunities will be open for women wrestlers taking part in this Seminar during the September 6 ASCENT Tapings. To register, please visit rise-wrestling.com/seminar.

We’ve got a LOT packed into this week’s installment of RISE – ASCENT. This week, we present Episode 13 – The Phoenix, The Wolf’s Head and The Broken Arm via our Apps on iOS and Android as well as riseascent.com.

This week, we bring you three main event worthy matches for sure!

IMPACT Knockouts Champion Su Yung, accompanied by one of The Undead Bridesmaids takes on Kris Wolf. Kris Wolf is desperately trying to become reunited with Tito after discovering he was involved in a bizarre ritual with The Bloody Undead Bride and her Bridesmaids two weeks ago!

Mercedes Martinez takes on Deonna Purrazzo. This is the second time these two have faced off on RISE – ASCENT, a rematch from Episode 4. We saw in Episode 11 Mercedes’ vicious attack during the in-ring celebration of the RISE Career of Deonna Purrazzo following Episode 10 – Farewell, Virtuosa. Then last week in Episode 12, we saw Deonna return the favor as Mercedes was a guest on an AMBY Interview with Backstage Hostess Alicia Atout. This week, win, lose, or draw, this will be the final RISE match for Deonna Purrazzo before she begins her career’s next steps in WWE NXT.

The Phoenix of RISE is one the line as Champion Tessa Blanchard defends against Miranda Alize with Kylie Rae in her corner. The Undeniable Phoenix has not exactly made fast friends with Wily Smilies. Tessa left Kylie laying after an assault with the Championship Title. Now, Miranda looks to get a measure of revenge, and pick up The Phoenix of RISE along the way!

Don’t miss the exciting conclusion of our tapings from Naperville, IL, streaming now worldwide via iOS, Android and riseascent.com!
