In Chicago, their home, The Berwyn Eagles Club in Berwyn, IL, they introduced the first in a SERIES of Tournaments they are looking to host in the back half of 2019. The Regional Rising Stars Tournaments purpose is to showcase young, up-and-coming talents of their geographic areas.

The first talent confirmed for The Midwest Bracket — Big Mama.
They will also have a few of the established stars of RISE on hand. The first talent announcement they have in non-tournament competition, Dust will be in action. This will solidify her position as the only member of the RISE Roster to be part of every single RISE Event.
With so many fans visiting Chicago that weekend, it is their hope to truly shine a spotlight on young, hungry Midwest talent, who may be unfamiliar to fans from other areas.
