MATT HARDY, LUCHA STARS, ECW ALUMNI ANNOUNCED FOR NEXT EXTREME RISING EVENTS IN NYC AND PHILADELPHIA

Extreme Rising (formerly Extreme Reunion) announced the top matches for their Friday 6/29 New York City debut and return to Philadelphia on Saturday 6/30. The shows will feature former WWE and TNA star Matt Hardy as well as Lucha stars Bestia and Pesadilla.

While plans for the company always included bringing in additional names to mix with former ECW talents, the issues with a number of talent booked for the debut show has led to the promoters moving those plans forward in rapid fashion.

The Friday 6/29 debut in New York City will be in Corona, Queens at the Elmcor Youth & Adult Activities Center (107-20 Northern Boulevard). This should be a short walk from the 7 Train so it's a good location in terms of being easy to get to. Tickets for NYC will go on sale this Monday.

The lineup for the NYC debut features:

*Jerry Lynn vs. Matt Hardy
*Homicide vs. Devon Storm
*Stevie Richards vs. Luke Hawx
*Bestia 666 vs. Pesadilla
*BLK OUT vs. The Dramatics
*Also appearing are the FBI, CW Anderson, Blue Meanie, Balls Mahoney and Pitbull Gary Wolfe.

The 6/30 Philadelphia return to The National Guard Armory will feature:

*Jerry Lynn vs. Homicide
*The Gangstas vs. BLK OUT
*Stevie Richards vs. Luke Hawx
*Plus the Gangstas and all the talent booked for NYC.
