EXTREME RISING WRESTLEMANIA WEEKEND EVENTS CANCELED

By Mike Johnson on 2013-03-26 23:10:00
Extreme Rising officials began contacting talent this evening, informing them the Wrestlemania weekend events in Philadelphia and Staten Island, NY were canceled.

Low ticket sales for the events were being blamed. There had been concern about going forward with the shows last week, but I am told Shane Douglas was adamant to the other partners that the shows take place, feeling his name was attached and he would take the hit if they were canceled.

With ticket sales not improving, the decision was made tonight to kill the shows. I am told this does not mean the end of the promotion, but this will be a hard thing to rebound from, for all the obvious reasons.
