One year ago, Extreme Reunion debuted to mixed reviews. There followed a common thought the company would not live to see a second event. However, rebranded as Extreme Rising, the promotion came back strong with two critically acclaimed events. Every event Extreme Rising has hosted has seen company-wide growth in a positive direction, culminating their 2012 with the mega-event “Card Subject to Change” http://youtu.be/Cemaky5ARc0, which featured the crowing of the first-ever World Champion in Stevie Richards, the debut of the Briscoe Brothers in a steel cage versus Blk Out and Los Dramaticos, the debut of Hijo De Rey Misterio, and an entertaining line-up from top to bottom. 2013 starts off with a triple-shot weekend featuring events any Extreme wrestling fan will not want to miss.
CARD FOR APRIL 4TH 2013 Pennsylvania National Guard Armory Philadelphia, PA
“Extreme Rising World Title Match”
STEVIE RICHARDS (c) vs. RAVEN
In this classic “student versus teacher” scenario, the student feels he has surpassed his mentor and is now the master of his domain, while his former master wishes for a chance to reign supreme once again. Can Richards defend his first ever Extreme World Title who claims to have “made him”—Raven? http://youtu.be/XZ-wpyDAmKo
JUSHIN “THUNDER” LIGER vs. SABU
For the first time ever, two of the most groundbreaking, influential aerial combatants in the history of professional wrestling will face off on American soil. On one side, the Homicidal, Suicidal, Genocidal Sabu stands tall in the city of Brotherly Love, where he has resided for two decades as the Lord of the Hardcores. On the other, international legend Jushin "Thunder" Liger, the most celebrated and colorful Japanese flier of the modern era, arriving in Philadelphia to topple the legend and add another historic win to his resume. Liger vs. Sabu. In The United States. For the First Time. Ever. http://youtu.be/Z1ki481pD-g

MATT HARDY W/REBY SKY vs. LUKE HAWX and special surprise
Matt Hardy has surpassed what anyone thought he may have been capable of when he debuted in Extreme Rising, and was on his way to defeating “The Franchise” Shane Douglas in his hometown of Pittsburgh, PA –before he was recklessly pushed by Hawx from the top rope to the concrete below, resulting in a concussion from the fall. Hawx began the verbal assault on social media by attacking Hardy and his girlfriend Reby Sky, immediately poking fun at the incident. Hardy responded by jumping him after Stevie Richards defeated Hawx to move on to become Extreme Rising champion. http://youtu.be/_YleQvgk5pU That same night Hardy slapped Hawx young son silly backstage http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2YS_P8LiXbk
thus causing Hawx to retaliate during Hardy’s match with Sabu. It’s time for these two to go one-on-one and settle their score.
