— In an update from an earlier post, Global Force Wrestling, Jeff Jarrett’s new promotion, appears to be moving towards holding their first events at the end of this year. The promotion’s first shows will be in the last quarter, perhaps as soon as October.
— In the wake of Extreme Rising cancelling its weekend shows earlier this week, Masked Mania is going the extra mile to aid wrestling fans. The promotion previously announced that they would still be holding their show despite added cost due to Extreme Rising handling some of the logistics. Now, the promotion has announced that they will be helping out fans who have tickets to the Extreme Rising show.
The promotion announced the following via press release:
We have been trying to figure out how we can, given the extreme hit we are taking on this event due to the Extreme Rising cancellations, still help the fans who have ER tickets at least a little.
To that end, we have rearranged some things, and now are able to present the following:
– Anyone who has already purchased MaskedMania tickets and also has Extreme Rising tickets in hand will get a free ticket upgrade at the door. Ticket upgrades will be done on a first come, first serve basis – the best upgrades being given to those who arrive first. (Anyone who has already purchased 1st Row VIP seats for MaskedMania, and also has Extreme Rising tickets in hand will receive some other form of merchandise bonus since there is no way to upgrade their ticket. Exact bonus to be determined.)
– Anyone who has not yet purchased a MaskedMania ticket, but has Extreme Rising tickets in hand, can come Sunday to the box office at the 2300 Arena starting at 2 PM and receive a free ticket upgrade with the purchase of any MaskedMania ticket. Ticket upgrades will be available on a 1st come, 1st serve basis as a limited supply are available (however it will be at least 100 upgrades which will be available).
Ticket upgrades will be for SEATING only. Meaning, the bonus items that may come with the actual purchase of those seats (Shirt/Mask/DVD depending on the row) will not be included in the seating upgrade.
The lineup is as follows:
* Dr. Wagner Jr. vs. LA PARK
