Many names have already been announced as new AND returning members to the Prospective Talent Pool of RISE 2 – ASCENT.

Women wrestlers, these seminars do sell out. Do not find yourself left behind. Our Seminars are unlike any others out there, so much so that even more talent is reaching out by the day who already attended RISE 1 to make sure they do not miss another opportunity to gain knowledge from these revered wrestling minds.

We hope to see you all January 27 and 28 for our HUGE Double Shot Weekend with AWS Promotions!


Last Thursday, the TNA Knockouts made history with a main event inside the Six Sides of Steel pitting Jade against Rosemary for the TNA Knockouts Title. In the end, it would be The Demon Assassin whose hand was raised.

Earlier in the day, news also broke that “The Demon Assassin” Rosemary, once known as Courtney Rush, would now be known as a featured guest of RISE 2 – ASCENT in South Gate California January 27.

What business brings Rosemary to RISE? We know this demon has a hunger for souls, but is she looking to feed at RISE 2? And if so, how will she satisfy her appetite?

Find out with us Friday, January 27. Free Meet and Greet begins at 6:30 PM, Live Event 8 PM bell time. Tickets are available at $15 Front Row, $10 Second Row Reserved and just $5 General Admission.

The main purpose of RISE is and always will be Developing Tomorrow’s Women Athletes, building a pipeline of talent for all women’s wrestling. World Class Development Seminars and Live Events for women wrestlers will continue to be the backbone of our business model.

Another facet of our business model is to help develop roles for supporting talents in non-wrestling capacities, open to women and to men.

A few roles for which there is no wrestling business-centric school would be those of Ring Announcers and Commentators. So those two roles will be the subject matter of our first Supporting Role Seminar, Putting Over It All – Ring Announcing and Commentary Camp.

This training opportunity sponsored by RISE and facilitated by Kevin Harvey will have its first outing in the first quarter of 2017. The training will consist of 3-4 hours of training with a cost of $25. The first seminar will likely take place in the greater Chicago area. However, based on demand and where our prospective participants live, that is subject to change or possibly occurring in multiple geographic areas.

If you are an experienced ring announcer or commentator or you are looking to start on the path toward those positions, please email, Subject – Putting Over It All Interest.

Please include in this email:


Performing Name: (If different)

Wrestling Background: (If applicable)

Non-Wrestling Announcing/Broadcasting Background: (If Applicable)

Are you 18 Years of Age or Older: Yes or No

What do you hope to get out of a wrestling seminar centric to Ring Announcing and Commentary?

In addition to the in-person seminars, Supporting Roles will also be eligible for sessions through Access – RISE. For more information on Access – RISE, please visit The Shop.


Now on the home page of, you will find a direct link to our upcoming World Class Development Seminars and other trainings falling outside the structure of RISE Seminar and Live Event co-productions. These training offerings will become more and more regular as we march into 2017.

This week, members in Access – RISE begin training. Kevin Harvey will be facilitating “The Business of Promos” this Wednesday, November 30 in Milwaukee. And there’s a whole lot more in store!

RISE – DTWA is pleased to announce yet another layer of training and development for women’s professional wrestling. Today, we launch Access – RISE, remote video training in addition to what we offer in our World Class Development Seminars.

While our World Class Development Seminars will focus largely on in-ring and physical training, Access – RISE will focus on public speaking and promos, character development and perspectives on crafting your persona as well as opportunity to submit matches for constructive feedback on a regular basis. We are also open to other topics sought by members, but these will be our primary focus points for this remote training.

Access – RISE will be available as an annual membership with an enrollment fee of $100. Members will be able to have “at least” one one-hour session every two weeks for a full calendar year. Sessions will be conducted over video chats using Skype and Facetime, subject to scheduling availability. When you break that down, that’s “at least” 26 hours of training for $100 if members schedule to their maximum potential.

In addition, active members of Access – RISE will receive a $10 discount on World Class Development Seminars the duration of their membership, regardless of geographic location. Members will also be prioritized and granted entry to World Class Development Seminars, even in the event of sellout.

RISE continues to innovate new methods of training and development for women professional wrestlers. And it doesn’t end with our Seminars and Access – RISE.
