RISE 1 – IGNITE will provide many in-ring firsts in Women’s Wrestling. It will also present the first-time pairing for our commentary duo Marty DeRosa and Veda Scott!

Marty is a cornerstone of the Chicago standup comedy scene. He is a founding member of “Comedians You Should Know,” the premier independently run standup showcase in Chicago. Marty has had a #1 album on iTunes and performs standup all over the country.

Also a lifelong fan of professional wrestling, many will recognize Marty from his YouTube contributions with Colt Cabana through “Creative Has Nothing for You” and “Worst Promo Ever.” Marty has also provided commentary for our friends in Minnesota at F1RST Wrestling.

You can listen to Marty weekly via MLW Radio through the podcast  “Marty and Sarah Love Wrestling” as well as his own show “Wrestling with Depression.”

Veda Scott is a name well known on the current independent wrestling scene. A product of the Ring of Honor Dojo, Veda was trained by Delirious and SHIMMER original Daizee Haze. Veda remains one of the busiest independent wrestlers today.

Veda brings to our commentary booth broadcast experience from ROH and a knowledge of professional wrestling  acquired over years of hard work, spanning independent promotions around the world.

A key member in the rebirth of Women of Honor, Veda has made it no secret she wants nothing more than the continued advancement of women’s wrestling. As such, Veda has a very vested interest in RISE.
