RISE 5 Graphics.007

Something one can count on from all graduates of Storm Wrestling Academy, they all are incredibly hardworking and eager to continue to learn on their career journey, doing everything they can to develop into the best young talents on the circuit today! Someone who most certainly fits that mold is Rachael Ellering, and Rachael is coming to RISE 5 – RISING SUN November 10 in Berwyn, IL!

“Rachael is an impressive talent, already making quite a name for herself everywhere she goes. What’s more impressive to me is her attitude toward training and ongoing development. She is coming to RISE with no intention but to learn from some of the industry’s best and grow as a performer. That speaks volumes to us,” said RISE Executive Producer, Kevin Harvey.

With Rachael’s SHIMMER Debut on the horizon November 11-12 in Berwyn, IL, what impact will she make in RISE? Find out Friday, November 10!

Harvey elaborated, “Through RISE and Co-Ed concept GAIN, we’ve had the pleasure of working with several graduates of Lance Storm’s program. First we got to know Chelsea Green, then JaXon Argos and now Rachael. It’s very clear that training at SWA is truly some of the best in the world, physically and mentally. It should be very interesting to see what ways yet another SWA Graduate will stand out as one of today’s top independents!”

Tickets for RISE 5 are available at pipeline.ecwid.com. Tickets for SHIMMER are available at shimmerwrestling.com.

Part of what makes RISE Live Events unique is a degree of “you never know what you’re going to get.” Our Seminars feature talents from around the globe, each looking to develop their skills as they look to improve their performance. Each Seminar is home to The Prospective Talent Pool, the group of hopefuls from our Wold Class Development Seminars who came in with no promises or guarantees, each seeking just one opportunity on the card for the Live Event.

In addition to the RISE Core Roster, Featured Talents from SHIMMER and other major companies worldwide, roughly one third of our card is made up of women chosen directly from The Prospective Talent Pool.

The updated list of names includes:

Miranda Salinas, “Derby Doll” Layne Rosario, Dynamite Didi, Robin Maddox, Karen Q, Indi Hartwell, Stefany Sinclair, Tasha Steelz, Brittany Blake, Dominique Fabiano, Renee Michelle, Hyan, Hawlee Layne, Heather Monroe, “Sriracha Muchacha” Paloma Star, Ray Lyn, Kylie Rae, Londyn Ali, “Tenacious” Trixie Tash, Amanda Carolina Rodriguez, “The Duchess” Ayzali, Samara and the returning Team Blue Nation of Jessica Troy and Charli Evans.

As we have done with past Seminars, we try to give fans samplings of new talents from The Prospective Talent Pool through different match and video postings. In our first YouTube Campaign for RISE 5 – RISING SUN we present “Standing Out.”

Talents were given very few guidelines for what this was to mean other than a two minute time limit. And in that time, we asked them…well, we asked them to stand out, to show us, and more importantly all the fans what just might separate them from the pack Friday, November 10 at RISE 5!

And these video start dropping on our YouTube Channel TONIGHT! Subscribe to our channel HERE.

RP Tee.001

The devastation and aftermath of Hurricane Maria hits close to home for many at RISE, particularly the impact to Puerto Rico. Many of our talent, staff and Seminar attendees are still waiting to hear from many friends, family and business associates, still unable to establish communication in the wake of the terrible storm.

In an effort to raise funds to support relief of Hurricane Maria, our designer helped us create this special RISE – Puerto Rico Tee. 100% of all profits from these shirts’ sales will be donated to hurricane relief efforts in Puerto Rico. Additionally, a third party who wishes to remain anonymous has agreed to match donations 2-1.

These shirts are currently available for pre-order, estimated to begin shipping in two weeks. Sizes S-XL – $20, 2XL-5XL $25.

Our thoughts are with all those effected by this tragic situation. We only wish there was more we could do to help.

RISE – Puerto Rico Tees can be purchased at pipeline.ecwid.com.


The career of wrestling legend and 2015 WWE Hall of Fame Inductee Madusa, aka Alundra Blayze is one she openly declares “controversy creating.” Perhaps no moment in Madusa’s career created more controversy than her return to World Championship Wrestling’s on Monday Nitro December 18, 1995.

One of the most profound rounds of ammunition fired in the early days of The Monday Night Wars came at the hands of Madusa, making a profound statement with the WWE Women’s Championship. That statement would go down in history as one of wrestling’s most shocking moments.

In our VIP Meet and Greets in both Berwyn, IL for RISE 5 – RISING SUN November 10 and South Gate, CA for RISE 6 – BRUTALITY December 1, Madusa will not only appear to say hello to her fans, but she is bring the infamous title with her for a truly one of a kind photo op.

Chicago fans, this is your opportunity to take a photo with a true Joshi Legend, one of Madusa’s most storied rivals and the very title that sparked one of the most heated moments in the WWE vs. WCW rivalry.

SoCal fans, this is your opportunity to take a photo with the legendary feud that was Bull Nakano vs. Alundra Blayze with the very title they fought for around the world for WWE.

VIP Meet and Greet passes as well as Live Event Tickets for both RISE 5 and RISE 6 are on sale now at pipeline.ecwid.com.
