Rise - Ascent television taping and Rise 7.5 Steel was a whole lot of fun! Some six hours or so of wrestling matches. A lot of good ones like Britt Baker vs. Mercedes Martinez and Tessa Blanchard vs. Shotzi Blackheart. Champion vs. Champion Nicole Savoy vs. Delilah Doom was good too.
I got 13 game cards autographed. Doom is the only one I didn't get signed. I bought a lot of 8x10 autographed photos or other items, it's only money right?
Added four wrestlers to the game ranks, in the future hopefully. I'm happy with the names I got.
I did get to mention the game to Gail Kim. I got her email address. I know a lot of times that is a nice way for them to say no but we will certainly try to get her signed.
Cards I got signed: Melanie Cruise, Dust, Rosemary (Prime), Courtney Rush, Kimber Lee (CZW & Chikara), Jessicka Havok, Nicole Savoy, Shotzi Blackheart, Allysin Kay, Tessa Blanchard, Nevaeh, Deonna Purrazzo.
Rise has its own streaming video service. $4.99 a month gets your their entire archive of shows. Admittedly, not a whole lot right now. All their shows plus some random matches from other promotions. Looks like matches from AAW. But their tv show Rise - Ascent (the first tapings I was at two weeks ago) debuts this Wednesday and is a weekly show. Ascent will be online every Wednesday.
Feels like most feds will try and have some form of service though I wonder if most will have enough shows to bother subscribing for a month or two and then cancel after you've seen everything.
True. But if their weekly show continues there's 4 new things a month. Plus they will continue running their normal shows. Looks like at least every couple months they have an event. Right now not a ton of stuff. 9-10 Rise events and a dozen or so individual women's matches from AAW. $4.99 is cheap enough for me to give it a try, and I already have on disk all of their released shows.
