This was just posted on the Extreme Reunion Facebook Page:

"As much as we hated to reschedule Philly 11/17 to 12/29 Philly due to something totally out of our control by the State of Pennsylvania, we had the opportunity to NOT cancel the event so wrestlers would not lose a gig, and still give the fans another special show with it being the 15 year anniversary of November to Remember. PLUS we ADDED 3 more shows, and people are talking crazy negative about it be "disgusting", "F' the fans", "huge disappointments", etc... Everyone, we have done and continue to try to do the best we can, but we just can't make everyone happy. We have provided alternate options for those whom already purchased tickets for the original 11/17 show in Philly. We will be contacting EACH person who ordered tickets to provide them with their choice of exchanging tickets, credit for merchandise, or refund. If we did not offer those options, we can understand the resentment and anger, but again doing what we can to keep pushing forward. Thank you to all whom have already contacted us showing their support and excitement for Extreme Rising's future! It is very much appreciated!"

The staff at Extreme Reunion are calling the event the 15th anniversary event for ECW's milestone "November to Remember" Pay Per View event.

November to Remember (N2R) was an annual Eastern Championship Wrestling and Extreme Championship Wrestling professional wrestling show held during the month of November between 1993 and 2000. 1996 edition was internet only pay-per-view. Starting with 1997 edition the event was broadcast on pay-per-view. The event was considered to be ECW's flagship supercard. The rights to the event now belong to World Wrestling Entertainment.

The first N2R main event was Terry Funk and King Kong Bundy vs Sabu and Road Warrior Hawk for the ECW World Television Championship. However, the memorable main event in the 1997 Pay Per View was Bam Bam Bigelow vs Shane Douglas for the ECW World Heavyweight Championship. In that match, Shane Douglas pinned Bigelow after a Belly to Belly Suplex.

By SnowMan Jones

Fifteen years ago, Extreme Championship Wrestling held its biggest annual event titled November to Remember. Abbreviated N2R, the 1997 edition featured the now deceased Scott "Bam Bam" Bigelow taking on ECW World Heavyweight Champion Shane Douglas in a match that was talked about for years. The Pay Per View was largely considered a success, and the show's DVDs still circulate.

The event took place in the Golden Dome in Monaca, Pennsylvania, just outside of Pittsburgh. Although only fifteen years later, several of the event's performers are no longer with us. Chris Candido, Bam Bam Bigelow, Chris Candido, Pit Bull #2, Big Dick Dudley, and John Kronus have all since passed away. That's why Shane Douglas and the team at Extreme Reunion are presenting Extreme Rising, which is an unofficial reunion show for the highly lauded independent 1997 event

One of the biggest challenges to the Extreme team is that the WWE owns the rights to the name ECW, November to Remember, the Dudleys and scores of associated trademarks. Vince McMahon's team also owns the image library, various themes, and video footage. Therefore, any sort of nostalgia for N2R 1997 is going to have to come from memories, old personal pictures, Internet buzz, and talk.

The staff at Wrestling911.com wish Extreme Reunion the best of luck with their November 17th reunion event at the Golden Dome. We also wish them the best of luck with their scheduled December event.
