EXTREME RISING CANCELS ALL EVENTS

By Mike Johnson on 2014-04-22 14:59:49
Extreme Rising owner Steve O'Neill contacted PWInsider.com this afternoon with the following statement:

ALL EXTREME RISING LIVE EVENTS FOR PHILADELPHIA AND PITTSBURGH -FRIDAY, APRIL 25TH, -SATURDAY, APRIL 26TH, -SATURDAY, MAY 3RD ARE ALL CANCELLED.

FOR FULL REFUNDS PLEASE CONTACT YOUR CREDIT CARD COMPANY OR BANK DIRECTLY, OR STORE PURCHASED AT.

The Extreme Rising website is still up but has removed all references to the events that were scheduled. Talents were all contacted via text messages in the last few minutes that all shows are off as well.

All social media accounts related to the promotion have also been deleted, including O'Neill's personal Facebook.

O'Neill has also pulled out of a planned PWInsider interview, noting in an email that accompanied the statement that the announcement would be his only comment on the matter. A number of readers have asked if this means the promotion is dead. Nothing official has been said, but it would be really, really hard to come back from this.

This Sunday's Lucha Libre show, which is being promoted by Masked Republic, is on as scheduled. For ticket information, visit www.MaskedMania.com.
