ECWA and Extreme Rising team up again!
A few months ago, Extreme Rising had a scheduled show for Saturday March 8, 2014. It was the very same day that ECWA was presenting ‘Spring Battle III’ live in Newark, Delaware. However, due to unforeseen circumstances the Asylum Arena aka the former ECW arena in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania had to cancel Extreme Rising’s show forcing Extreme Rising management into crisis mode hoping to somehow appease the fans and the men they had contracted to be on their show.
That’s where a brilliant partnership with the ECWA came into focus!

New WWE Divas Champion Paige
spoke with The UK’s Independent about her big win over AJ Lee on Monday’s RAW. She commented on what it was like to get the win:
“Oh my gosh, you have no idea. I lost my mind. Firstly just being in the ring with AJ who I’ve always looked up to, she’s an incredible talent and a woman to be around, and then being on Raw is just insane. I’ve been working my whole career to get to this point, it’s been nearly nine years now, and it was just incredible. I couldn’t stop crying, I haven’t stopped talking to my family about it, it’s overwhelming especially getting so much support from the fans and backstage. It’s been magical.”

Word seems to be spreading that Jersey Championship Wrestling (JCW) is the place to be for professional wrestling legends to showcase their talents and meet their fans! Coming off of a month that saw both Jake “The Snake” Roberts and Jerry “The King” Lawler in the JCW ring, we move forward to April with no fewer than seven legends and stars who are ready to thrill the New Jersey crowds!
The first event will take place in Brick, NJ on April 19th. Hardcore wrestling icons Terry Funk and Tommy Dreamer will be in the house that night, so be prepared for a truly Extreme show! In the main event of the evening, Funk will be in Dreamer’s corner for a rematch of a match that took place in June of last year in Oakland. Dreamer will once again be facing “The Cold-Hearted Playa” Danny DeManto! Their last meeting put JCW down one door and a ring bell, and it took guest commissioner and former New York Giants Super Bowl Champion Jay Alford to put an end to the match!
