RISE Wrestling released the following about a very special event coming to Chicago on June 30th:
(h/t: Squared Circle Sirens)
That word means many powerful things to many people.
To our talent and our fans, it has meant making a better environment for Women’s Wrestling, a place to train and develop aspiring women wrestlers. It has meant giving a platform to Today’s Best, Tomorrow’s Brightest to pass on knowledge and elevate new talents, building a pipeline of talent for all of professional wrestling.
But the word RISE means so much more to so many communities.
June 30 is one of the the most important days of the year in Chicago for the LGBTQ+ Community. It is a day to come together, to embrace what makes us all different, unique and to unite everyone in one place, with one love. June 30 is one of the largest Pride Parades worldwide, and it happens right here in Chicago. In 2018, an estimated 1 Million people attended or Marched in Chicago’s Pride Parade.
June 30 will be a day without judgment, a day all will truly feel love on the RISE.
June 30, we want to bring our talent and fans together again in Chicago. We want to open our doors, our arms and our hearts to the members of the LGBTQ+ Community in Chicago.
June 30 RISE presents PRIDE & JOY at 5 PM Central from Logan Square Auditorium in Chicago, IL, streaming LIVE Worldwide via iPPV on Fite TV.
This event is not about professional wrestling for RISE. It is about inclusiveness, inclusiveness of all cultures.

It is about taking what we do today to make tomorrow better.
