– Four-time ECW World Heavyweight Champion Shane Douglas announced Saturday via video message that “extreme wrestling” is coming back to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. “The Franchise” is rounding up the band of hardcore misfits for Extreme Reunion, which takes place Saturday, April 28, 2012 at 7:00 p.m. at the Pennsylvania National Guard Armory (2700 Southampton Blvd & Roosevelt Blvd) Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19154.

An official website has been launched for the event at www.extremereunion.net. PWInsider.com reports that the show is not planned as a one-off event but as part of a larger project.

— Paul Heyman went on Twitter to praise Jim Ross. He wrote, “Greatest announcer ever. And 1 TOUGH mentor. I learned about wrestling and LIFE from JR.”

In a trivia note, Ross indicated Saturday that he almost joined ECW following his dismissal from WWE in 1994. He tweeted Heyman, “but Happy…you never hired Ol JR..could’ve been a contend-a. Do you remember when we discussed me being a ‘surprise?”

Heyman also said he’s high on Chris Jericho. He wrote, “HUGE fan of Chris Jericho, professionally and personally!”

  • Pissed Off Fan =(

    ECW! ECW! ECW!

    I hope they show it on PPV. It would be awesome to see an the ECW originals on their home term under their rules and stuff. Not WWE doing for them amd ruining it

  • The Gold Standard

    I respect ECW and thought it was great. But enough is enough. Nothing soulda happened past ons in 05. This is way overboard.

    @Jefferson
    Ain’t that the truth. Sadly I don’t think Santino, Swoggle or The Overrated Champion will ever leave our screens anytime soon.

  • E C DUB

    Tommy Dreamer cry? Naaaaaah

  • venom

    I bet Dreamer will be there crying ECW! ECW! Blah! Blah!

  • Jefferson D’Arcy

    ^ I’d rather see it than any Zack Ryder, Santino, or Hornswoggle bullshit.

  • DuffManLovesHimSomeWrestling

    By “him” I mean Shane Douglas

  • DuffManLovesHimSomeWrestling

    Do the fans get to see him vomit in the ring once more?
