Extreme Rising Pro Wrestling has been notified by Roger Artigiani, management of the Arena (former ECW Arena), that the venue will be unable to host this weekend Saturday, March 1st live event due to a hired contractor and the City of Philadelphia, were unable to schedule an inspection and certification of the building.
The venue was instructed by city officials not to open or serve fines and penalties would be issued, as well as a lengthy suspension would be imposed that would delay the grand opening for months.
This issue now prevents the Arena from opening up legally, thus leaving Extreme Rising without a suitable venue to hold this Saturday's event.
