This past weekend (July 7th), RISE and Impact Wrestling presented their RISE 9 – Rise of Knockouts event where a new Phoenix Of RISE Champion was crowned as well as the first-ever Guardians of RISE Tag Team Champions.

As it was reported prior to RISE 9, Delilah Doom relinquished the Phoenix of RISE Championship after suffering an injury that would prevent her from competing. There was suppose to be a 30 Minute Iron Woman Match to crown a new Champion between Shotzi Blackheart and Mercedes Martinez, but in an unfortunate turn of events, Blackheart also suffered an injury the night before in Los Angeles, CA.
