Our December 2 event in South Gate, California is shaping up to be quite the afternoon of entertainment! We start things off with the VIP Meet and Greet with Madusa and Bull Nakano. Then, Madusa kicks off the LIVE recording of her Full Throttle Podcast with guests Bull Nakano, Mercedes Martinez, Toni Storm and Kris Wolf. And on top of that, we announced the card for RISE 6.5 – THROTTLE, three amazing matches happening during the afternoon – all on one ticket!

The card for RISE 6.5 consists of Deonna Purrazzo challenging The Phoenix of RISE Champion (Champion following Delilah Doom vs. Rosemary STEEL CAGE Match from RISE 6), Shotzi Blackheart challenges Toni Storm for the SWA Championship and Mercedes Martinez will face Kris Wolf – all first time matchups!

All tickets to this Podcast and Live Event are General Admission for $25. The VIP Option is $50 standalone, $70 when purchased with GA Ticket.

Today’s Cyber Monday deal gives special savings, no promo codes necessary! Buy 2 or more GA Tickets to this event, they will be $20 each. Buy 2 or more VIP + GA and the price drops to $55! Prices are all active now at pipeline.ecwid.com.

GA Seating will be first come, first served. However, keep in mind VIPs will have first pick of seats as they will enter the arena first!

With such a wild time with Madusa hosting the show with these guests and three amazing matches, let’s have another packed house for Madusa’s Full Throttle LIVE and RISE 6.5 – THROTTLE!

If you are unable to be there live for the matches, catch them on our Fan-Cam iPPV feed at rise-wrestling.com/ippv!

We have completed our tests, and many thanks to the fans who participated and offered their feedback. We can now confirm we will be offering both RISE 6 – BRUTALITY and RISE 6.5 – THROTTLE on iPPV, shot from a Fan-Cam Perspective!

“This is something we’ve wanted from day one. The time and circumstances seem right to try. Not only can our worldwide fans join us LIVE as these amazing matches are happening, but it is a bit of a nod to the days of tape-traders. Those who wanted to see some of the best wrestling in the world before the days of the internet, often times the Fan-Cam shots were the only way to acquire it. I am a big fan of bringing that idea back, and I am hoping there are fans who feel the same,” said RISE Executive Producer, Kevin Harvey.

These particular streams will be available LIVE only, Fan-Cam perspective and offered without commentary.  We will still have a multi-camera shoot that will be edited and produced by Smart Mark Video, available as DVD, Blu-ray and Digital Download shortly after the weekend has concluded.

And RISE 6 and RISE 6.5 are available for purchase now at rise-wrestling.com/ippv! RISE 6 is $8 until Wednesday, November 29, then $10 after. RISE 6.5 is $6 until Wednesday, November 29, then $8 after.

RISE 6 – BRUTALITY Goes Live Friday, December 1 at 8 PM Pacific.

RISE 6.5 – THROTTLE Goes Live Saturday, December 2 at 2 PM Pacific. This feed will have intermittent interruptions to broadcast. Matches will take place between Podcast segments for Madusa’s Full Throttle LIVE. Keep your eyes to our Social Media @RISEdtwa and we will inform when matches are set to begin and resume.

And we are currently working out details and pricing for our partners at AWS Promotions to bring their event Again, No Presents for Christmas as well! AWS will feature many of the top female talents from RISE and SHIMMER, some of the West Coast’s best male talent and a Women’s Battle Royal featuring many talents from our RISE 6 Seminar and beyond.

No matter where you are in the world, we cannot wait to bring you RISE and AWS LIVE on iPPV!

Fans worldwide, we have been working round the clock for weeks to make RISE 6 – BRUTALITY available to as many people as possible. Tonight, at 8 PM CST, we needs fans to help us test some internet waters.

Tonight, we will determine if we are able to offer RISE 6 – BRUTALITY worldwide this Friday as a Fan-Cam iPPV!

We need to test our technology, including the payment processing. There will be a charge of $1 for tonight’s test, but all funds will be refunded at the conclusion of the test unless specified otherwise by fans that they would offer this as a donation for tonight’s match. As a special treat, we will test the stream with Nicole Savoy vs. Kylie from RISE 5 – RISING SUN!

If this test is successful, and we believe it will be, we will offer RISE 6 – BRUTALITY as a Fan-Cam iPPV! But we need your help to make sure it can happen. We need a minimum of 10 people, ideally many more. Our fans have been asking for iPPV, and we are doing our best to deliver.

Can you help us tonight? The feed goes live at 8 PM CST at rise-wrestling.com/ippv!

If this test is successful, we will not only offer RISE 6, but also RISE 6.5, the matches taking place now as part of Madusa’s Full Throttle LIVE December 2!

Stay tuned!

As always, part of what makes every RISE Live Event special is the wild card nature of…well, the card itself! No RISE card is 100% determined until we have evaluated The Prospective Talent Pool, the participants in our World Class Development Seminar. This outing, facilitated by Cheerleader Melissa, Madusa and Bull Nakano has higher visibility than any Seminar we have done before.

And now, ladies and gentleman, The Prospective Talent Pool for RISE 6 – BRUTALITY

Laynie Luck, Maritza Janett, Ayoka Muhara, Paige Turner, Hyan, Samara, Penelope Ford, Savannah Evans, Aerial Monroe, Trixie Tash, ACR, Nina Monet, Dynamite DiDi, Kiki, Willow Nightingale, Aryia Alexander, Priscilla Kelly, Layne Rosario and Heather Monroe.

Who from this latest Prospective Talent Pool will find their way into the open contracts of featured talent and RISE Roster members? Who from the Seminar might find themselves on opposite sides of the ring, possibly teaming with or against Taya Valkyrie and Jimmy Jacobs?

Women wrestlers, due to injuries and cancellations this week, we have a total of five spots open for this Seminar. Registration is $150, and trust us, this is NOT the RISE Seminar to miss based on future opportunities. To secure your spot in this Seminar, email kevin@wrestlingpipeline.com, Subject RISE 6 ASAP.

Only one way to find out: be there LIVE Friday, December 1 in South Gate, CA! As of this writing, only 23 advance GA tickets remain. RISE and AWS are currently exploring options for additional seating or a standing room ticket, but there are no guarantees. Get your tickets now at pipeline.ecwid.com.

The last few weeks have been interesting as the Live Event of RISE 6 – BRUTALITY has more and more matches with higher stakes than originally thought. Just days ago, Bull Nakano, after years of laying dormant since retirement viciously attacked Manami Toyota in Japan. This attack did not go unnoticed by another of Bull’s legendary rivals, Madusa.

After some brief interactions with one another on social media, it seems this storied rivalry will once again take form, this time in South Gate, CA!

Shotzi Blackheart, “The Ballsy Badass” and former Phoenix of RISE Champion will be managed by 2015 WWE Hall of Fame Inductee Madusa, aka Alundra Blayze. Shotzi’s opponent, STARDOM’s Kris Wolf, brings all of her energy, charisma and ring prowess with her, along with manager Bull Nakano!

With Bull straight-up attacking her former rivals with weapons and Madusa using phrases like, “still some gas left in the tank,” will the two legends be able to remain in their respective corners, or are some brutal rivalries just to intense to be contained any longer?

One thing is for sure, one of the most anticipated matches on the RISE 6 – BRUTALITY card just became even more can’t-miss!

Shotzi Blackheart with Madusa vs. Kris Wolf with Bull Nakano. Let’s just let that sink in for a moment. What a way to top off 2017!

We are well on our way to sold out for RISE 6! With General Admission priced at $10, get your tickets now as this event is expected to sell out with one week to go and fewer than 50 advance tickets remaining!

Also, until 12 AM PST November 25, we have our $10 promotion with code “turkey” for our VIP Events December 1-2. Order now and get the VIP Experience with Madusa and Bull Nakano AND General Admission to RISE 6 for just $45!
