At RISE 2 – ASCENT in South Gate, CA, we had a surprise for the live audience. We had an even bigger surprise for six of the women who were part of our World Class Development Seminar and Live Event. We named the first six members of the RISE Roster, a core group of talents, discovered in our Seminars, upon whom we felt we could build our brand.
Now that we have RISE 3 – MEDIC behind us, the original vision of our Live Events has now come to fruition: Live Events showcasing top-shelf, featured talent, our core roster and our newest discoveries from our Seminars.
The Roster began with Phoenix of RISE Champion Shotzi Blackheart, The First Phoenix of RISE Dust, “The Fallen Flower” Kikyo, Britt Baker, Chelsea Green and Delilah Doom. What began as six has now grown to eight.
Welcome to the RISE Roster…
“The Hardcore Princess” Jewells Malone! Jewells made an impression in our Seminar at RISE 2 and fought a brutal contest with Kikyo at RISE 3, solidifying her place on the RISE Roster in the process. After this showing and also her performances in preliminary matches prior to SHIMMER Volumes 92-95, Jewells has found a home in RISE!
Deonna Purrazzo! Deonna wanted to come in and make an impression, and boy, did she ever! Deonna kicked off RISE 3 – MEDIC by not just boldly challenging SHIMMER Original Cheerleader Melissa, but pinning Melissa’s shoulders to the mat for the victory! She followed this up with several impressive matches in SHIMMER, more than earning her place on the RISE Roster as well!
As with any wrestling company, not every roster member can be on every show. But as you can see with the roster we are developing, any combination of these amazing talents will be well worth the price of admission.
Congratulations, Jewells Malone and Deonna Purrazzo. Welcome home. Welcome to RISE!
