The problems continue for the Philadelphia-based Extreme Rising promotion. On the heels of champion Luke Hawx walking out of the organization due to differences with owner Steve O’Neil, the promotion has now sent an official text message to fans announcing that their three upcoming shows- two in Philadelphia and one in Pittsburgh have been cancelled. A tough blow to a promotion that once had promise.
Below is the official text message sent to ticket holders:
EXTREME RISING EVENTS 4/25, 4/26, 5/3 CANCELLED REFUNDS THROUGH YOUR CREDIT CARD & BANK ONLY OR IN STORE
The Extreme Rising website is still active, but has removed all mentions of the events that were scheduled. The Extreme Rising Facebook and Twitter pages have been deleted, their Youtube videos still exist but are all marked private, and Steve O’Neil’s personal Facebook as been deleted as well.
While it is not official, it is pretty apparent that they promotion may now indeed be closed for business.
