EXTREME REUNION TO PRESENT LARGEST INDEPENDENT PRO WRESTLING LIVE EVENT IN PHILADELPHIA, PA IN A DECADE
MARCH 1, 2012 – Extreme Reunion will present their professional wrestling convention and live event at the Pennsylvania National Guard Armory, Saturday, April 28, 2012 in Northeast Philadelphia. Extreme Reunion will be the largest event of its kind in the area over the past decade.
Extreme Reunion will reunite alumni of the ever popular professional wrestling company, Extreme Championship Wrestling (E.C.W.) as they pay homage to the past, and look forward to restarting a type of wrestling company that has not been seen since the original E.C.W. went out of business in 2001 and purchased by the WWE.
Talent confirmed for Extreme Reunion include “The Franchise” Shane Douglas, Raven, Sabu, Al Snow w/head, Justin Credible, Rhino, Jerry Lynn, The Blue Meanie, The Full Blooded Italians (Little Guido, Tony Mamaluke, and Tracy Smothers), The Original Gangstas (New Jack and Mustafa), Axl Rotten, Balls Mahoney, CW Anderson, PG-13, and more to be announced*.
Years after E.C.W. closed, the popularity of the brand carried on as Vince McMahon’s WWE released the very successful “Rise and Fall of ECW” documentary DVD in 2004, followed by a 2005 ECW reunion Pay Per View event “One Night Stand”. That same year ECW originals, independent from the WWE, promoted “Hardcore Homecoming” wildly successful reunion shows with their debut at the original ECW venue in South Philadelphia, drawing more than the original company ever did in that building. The company also released very popular DVDs of the events and documentary. Finally in 2010, TNA wrestling brand (seen on Spike TV) presented their version of an ECW reunion show as part of their “Hardcore Justice” Pay Per View event which drew the promotion’s best numbers in years, quadrupling their normal monthly buy rates.
With the announcement of Extreme Reunion, the response from the fans has been overwhelming, and tickets for this event are selling very quickly. Extreme Reunion will ignite a revolution in pro wrestling to give fans old and new what they have been longing for. From entertaining, non-PG, multi-layered storylines presented with athletic professional wrestling and characters, to the Rocky Horror-like audience participation. The fan base that supports the extreme brand is extremely loyal and rabid, willing to travel hundreds of miles to events, search out TV shows, DVDs, and ancillary products that invoke and support the Extreme brand and talent. To say the fans are passionate is an understatement.
Extreme Reunion will take place Saturday, April 28, 2012 at the Pennsylvania National Guard Armory is located at 2700 Southampton Road at the corner of Roosevelt Boulevard in Philadelphia, PA 19154.
Extreme Reunion “Fan Fest” will begin at 9am until 12 noon with a meet and greet of talent appearing on the event later that evening, with opportunities with all the stars of Extreme Reunion.
