Talent confirmed for Extreme Reunion include “The Franchise” Shane Douglas, Raven, Sabu, The Sandman, Al Snow w/head, Justin Credible, Jerry Lynn, The BWO (Stevie Richards, 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, Rhino, PG-13, with more to be announced, and of course we can’t forget a surprise or two!*
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, with the floor section already sold out, but has been reconfigured to open up a few remaining floor seats . 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.
