With last night’s bombshell announcement of WWE Hall of Famer Madusa, aka Alundra Blayze, our inquiries have been off the hook! As mentioned briefly in our press release late Wednesday, Madusa has agreed to a multi-Seminar and appearance deal with RISE. The first is September 15 in Norwich, England as part of RISE 4 with SHIMMER Champion Mercedes Martinez!
However, we have a lot more going on this year, and our North American Prospective Seminar Talents have been asking what’s in store for the rest of 2017, so here is what we can tell you.
RISE 4 – WARRIORS RISE September 15 in Norwich, England with Madusa and SHIMMER Champion Mercedes Martinez, £100.
RISE 5 – RISING SUN November 10 in Berwyn, IL (Chicago) with Unannounced Joshi Legend and TBD, $150.
RISE 6 – BRUTALITY December 1 in South Gate, CA (Los Angeles) with Madusa and TBD.
“Clearly the program is hitting its stride and we are involving heavy hitters, some of the heaviest hitters in wrestling history. I know we have been ambiguous with our language about a ‘crazy back half of 2017,’ and ‘cannot believe who we’re talking to for upcoming seminars.’ Hopefully, with the confirmation and announcement of Madusa’s involvement in RISE clearly shows just how serious we are about developing the next generation of women’s wrestlers. Now, when girls see things like ‘Unannounced’ and ‘TBD,’ I hope they realize that only means it is something amazing we are working on and, as is the case with most major business dealings, little can be outwardly discussed until all details on all sides are final,” said PIPELINE Executive Producer, Kevin Harvey.
Harvey elaborated, “We know we are asking talent to take personal, professional and financial risks to be part of RISE Seminars and potentially our Live Events. We are taking those same risks on a grand scale to show all we truly believe in what we do: discovering new talent and cultivating the next generation of stars in women’s wrestling.”
Now, the remainder of 2017’s Seminars are all open for registration and effectively on sale. Though they are months away, early registration will allow for maximum time to plan travel for Prospective Seminar Talents.
