Extreme Rising issued the following statement on having to cancel their show tomorrow night (2/8) in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania:
We are writing to inform you that the Saturday, February 8th 2014 Extreme Rising show that was to take place at the Irish Centre at 6886 Forward Avenue in Pittsburgh, PA has been rescheduled to due to inclement weather and a State of Emergency for Pennsylvania just issued by Governor Tom Corbett, late Wednesday night.
This is an unfortunate situation as Extreme Rising has invested a lot of time, energy and money into this event and was excited about our Pittsburgh, PA return. The safety and well being for our fans, wrestlers, and staff is the first priority. These unsafe conditions cannot be taken softly or ignored.
