Former ECW Arena To Feature Wrestling Again?
CityPaper.net has posted a new article taking a look at the old ECW Arena, and it's possible return to a wrestling/boxing venue. The article notes the following:
"What is up with Joanna Pang's little-publicized leasing of W. Ritner Street's legendary Asylum Arena? Once known as the New Alhambra and the ECW Arena, the space was a haven for wrestling and boxing matches, the location shoot for Mickey Rourke's The Wrestler and the site of many a rockabilly/burlesque bash. Last winter, Pang announced plans to renovate the spot as an entirely boxing/wrestling-free zone and its walls have been stripped since April. After that, little was heard — until last week, when several wrestling and boxing pros mentioned the revival of Asylum. Is this wishful thinking on their part or is Pang rethinking her wrestling position?"
