Earlier this week, Extreme Rising closed its doors after a streak of canceled shows. The closure was accompanied by a lot of angry fans claiming to have never received refunds for advanced ticket purchases on several shows. The only statement from the promotion or promoter, Steve O'Neill, was for them to contact their credit card companies for refunds.
WZ's Justin LaBar, who has a brief experience working with the promotion, offered his thoughts on the whole situation in his wrestling column on TribLIVE.com. LaBar's column initiated several talents who worked with Extreme Rising to contact WZ and offer their opinions.
