Extreme Rising events canceled

For the second time in its short history, the Extreme Rising promotion has canceled all events.

Shows set for Friday and Saturday in Philadelphia, as well as 5/3 in Pittsburgh are off.  Rumors had been flying in the last few days that the shows were in jeopardy and that promoter Steve O'Neill was out of money.  He has since shut down all the company's social media accounts as well as his Facebook.

O'Neill had started the promotion with Shane Douglas and Dr. Mark Keenan, but the latter two had pulled out last year and were not a part of the attempt to restart it after canceling dates scheduled in the Northeast as part of the 2013 WrestleMania weekend.

For full refunds, contact your credit card company and back directly, or the store tickets were purchased at.

The Masked Republic show scheduled for sunday at the ECW Arena is still scheduled.
