Mike Johnson is reporting that Extreme Rising has contacted talent that was scheduled to appear on their shows next weekend in New York City & Philadelphia that the shows are canceled.

This was done due to poor ticket sales, although Shane Douglas had insisted on going forward with running the shows because he felt if they were canceled, he would take the hit since his name is attached to the promotion.

There is no word on the future of the promotion going forward, although the Extreme Rising promoters insist that the canceling of the shows does not mean the promotion is shutting down.
