In the last few weeks, we have received a few questions about t-shirts from RISE as well as several RISE Talents. We decided instead of trying to remember every single link, we would just make one big section of our website RISE fans can visit to buy shirts, and in some cases other merchandise, directly from RISE Talents themselves.

Introducing: rise-wrestling.com/tees!

We know it’s not the prettiest web design ever, but it’ll do the trick! We have linked directly to talent stores on Pro Wrestling Tees, Big Cartel and Ecwid among others, all in one spot. Every known t-shirt and merchandise store from any talent who has performed in the rings of RISE is here. Should we discover more, we will add more in time.

After the RISE Company Shirts at the top of the page, all talent t-shirt stores are listed in alphabetical order by first name.

Check out some of your favorites today at rise-wrestling.com/tees!

Process Elevator.001

Sunday, February 3 at 3 PM EST, 2 PM Central, we will debut our new concept show The Process, a behind the scenes look at the creative process of what went into the creative process of RISE before, during and after key events in company history.

We want to make this concept as interactive as possible, so we will be testing the debut Episode as a LIVE, interactive Fan Q&A at twitch.tv/risedtwa. This LIVE Episode will be recorded and available for later viewing both on Twitch subscribers and for subscribers to RISE – ASCENT through riseacent.com and our Apps on iOS and Android.

The first Episode of The Process will delve into a topic that has very rarely, if ever, been discussed in a fan-facing way. Episode 1 will be The Process: The Elevator Matches. RISE Executive Producer Kevin Harvey will go into detail about the concept of The Elevator Match, and how it has, in fact, been part of what we do going back to RISE 1 – IGNITE. Kevin will also be open for fan Q&A before and after each match streamed as part of this Episode.

Each Elevator Match has been a crucial part of what we do, specifically tailored to put Seminar Standouts from our Prospective Talent Pools into higher profile situations. And, as you will see during the course of this Episode, The Elevator Match is a concept with a very high success rate, cementing Seminar Talents’ places on our Roster, elevating them to vital positions within RISE.

Don’t miss your chance to have some of your questions answered about the creative process and key goals of matches from RISE’s first year such as (not necessarily in streaming order for the show):

Britt Baker vs. Nicole Matthews from RISE 1 – IGNITE

Kennadi Brink vs. Saraya Knight from RISE 1 – IGNITE

Shotzi Blackheart vs. Mercedes Martinez from RISE 2 – ASCENT

Deonna Purrazzo vs. Cheerleader Melissa from RISE 3 – MEDIC

Delilah Doom vs. Rosemary from RISE 3 – MEDIC

Zoe Lucas vs. Cheerleader Melissa from RISE 5 – RISING SUN

Ray Lyn vs. Karen Q vs. Miranda Alize vs. Saraya Knight from RISE 5 – RISING SUN

Kylie Rae vs. Deonna Purrazzo from RISE 6 – BRUTALITY

Aerial Monroe vs. Nicole Savoy from RISE 6 – BRUTALITY

Dust vs. Toni Storm from RISE 6.5 – THROTTLE

Have your questions ready, and be prepared to see some of the key matches from RISE History possibly through a different lens, the lens of The Process: The Elevator Matches!

February 19 is going to be a very memorable day for RISE as we present RISE – A Nice Day in Orlando. Since we ventured to Orlando the first time last year and we saw just how many women talents there were in Orlando and surrounding areas, I have wanted to go back. I want to go back and see more of the talents we just started to know, talents like Avery Taylor, Janai Kai and Sofia Castillo just to name a few. I also know there are many more talents who were not able to attend our last learning outing.

And this time, we’re coming back with one hell of a learning opportunity for women wrestlers. We have one of the most vocal supporters of women’s wrestling facilitating our World Class Development Seminar. We have another Hall of Fame career’s worth of knowledge joining our mission in Developing Tomorrow’s Women Athletes.

We have the legendary Mick Foley joining RISE February 19!

This is exciting to me in so many ways, professionally and personally.

Professionally, knowing that someone with the experience and expertise of Mick Foley not only believes in what we do, but is also willing to be part of Developing Tomorrow’s Women Athletes, that is incredibly validating that we are doing the right thing. It’s just amazing to me the learning opportunity available for those in this Seminar!

Personally, I still remember it like it was yesterday, sitting on the living room floor in glorious Climax, Michigan, watching Monday Night Raw. I remember seeing the sit down interviews with Mankind and Jim Ross, the interviews where the world was introduced to Dude Love. Those very interviews made me believe that maybe, just maybe there was a place in the wrestling world for someone like me.

I cannot wait to see what inspiration Mick brings to the up and coming generation of women wrestlers.

Mrs. Harvey’s Man Child is indeed very excited to be teaming with Mrs. Foley’s Baby Boy!

Women Wrestlers, seating is very limited in this seminar and we are allowing entry by invitation only. We may have a very select few open seats, and to be added into consideration for any remaining seats, please email kevin@wrestlingpipeline.com, Subject: Foley Seminar.

Fans, join us for RISE – A Nice Day in Orlando! We will be taping several episodes of RISE – ASCENT featuring such talents as Phoenix of RISE Champion Mercedes Martinez, 1/2 of The Guardians of RISE Tag Tam Champions Dust with Rosemary in her corner, “BIG Swole” Aerial Monroe, Samantha Heights, Leva Bates and more!

Mick will also be available for a Meet and Greet with fans.

This is a very small, intimate venue, so tickets in advance are strongly encouraged. Only a few Front Row remain at $30, all other tickets $15 at risedtwa.ticketleap.com.

Meet and Greet with Mick Foley is $40 and includes 1 Photo with Mick (taken with your camera) and 1 Autographed Photo (or 1 substituted item you provide you wish to have signed). Additional autographs are available at $30 per item. Meet and Greet is also now on sale at risedtwa.ticketleap.com.

Get ready, Orlando! We’re coming, and it’s going to be a very Nice Day in Orlando!

Tonight on Twitch, we will be replaying IRON WOMEN – The Tessa Blanchard vs. Mercedes Martinez Story at 10 PM Eastern, 9 PM Central. This stream will feature both the 30 Minute Iron Woman Match from RISE 9 and the 75 Minute Iron Woman Match from RISE 10.

In addition to that, we will be premiering a few videos shot in Houston that set the stage for LEGENDARY, specifically building the stories of Delilah Doom with Rosemary vs. Shotzi Blackheart and the Main Event Stipulation for The Phoenix of RISE Championship as Mercedes Martinez faces Kylie Rae in a match type that neither competitor has ever faced.

Tuned in at 10 PM/9 PM at twitch.tv/risedtwa!

Last Saturday night in Houston, RISE partnered with Reality of Wrestling to present RISE 12 – ROW on The RISE. Fans on hand saw a stellar Live Event, headlined by two title matches. The Guardians of RISE were on the line as Paradise Lost with Rosemary defended against The Killer Death Machines. The Phoenix of RISE was defended as Mercedes Martinez put the title on the line against Kylie Rae.

What many fans do not know is we had producers and crew from our friends at IMPACT Wrestling on hand behind the scenes, filming many interviews, promos, vignettes and video package elements that will tell the tale not just of events filmed at ROW on The RISE, but also pave the road to our biggest project yet: RISE 13 – LEGENDARY, LIVE on iPPV via FITE TV March 29 from the Berwyn Eagles Club in suburban Chicago.

All elements filmed at ROW on The RISE are being compiled into Episodes 23-27 of RISE – ASCENT and will be available as soon as possible for subscribers at riseascent.com, our Apps on iOS and Android and twitch.tv/risedtwa.

With our primary in-ring content editor currently occupied on another project and of video package team currently working on very special elements for these episodes, it will take a bit longer than a standard in-ring only product release. But, if you have followed RISE – ASCENT, hopefully you agree that the video package elements add a great deal to our overall stories and are totally worth the wait. As an example, we are attaching our first video packages setting the stage for RISE 8’s Phoenix of RISE Championship Match between then-Phoenix of RISE Champion Delilah Doom and challenger Shotzi Blackheart at the end of this article.

And for those of you who collect RISE as physical media on DVD and Blu-ray, do not worry. The entire tapings will eventually be available as well, as was the case with RISE – ASCENT Collections from Pittsburgh, Naperville and Orlando.

We hope to have the first of these episodes out for subscribers of all streaming platforms in early February.

We can hardly wait to show you just how much fun we had in Houston.

We can hardly wait for you to begin the journey with us on the road to LEGENDARY!
