The End of Extreme?
Monday, January 16, 2012 @ 04:43pm EST

"I'm sick of funerals. I'm sick of Hardcore Homecomings. The Arena has finally ended. The era of extreme is done. Now hit the lights."

Those were the final words spoken on a microphone in the Asylum Arena this past weekend as the current CZW World Jr. Heavyweight Champion, SAMI CALLIHAN, stood over a beaten and bloodied Sabu.

Not 15 minutes prior, worlds collided when CZW Owner DJ Hyde, Matt Tremont, Alexander James, Drew Gulak, Kit Osbourne, & CZW Academy students hit the ring during the Extreme Farewell to remind everyone that CZW ran more shows in the Arena than ECW. If anyone was going to close out the show, it would be the Combat Zone. The CZW contingent brawled to the back with Balls Mahoney, New Jack, Pitbull #1, & ECW Founder Tod Gordon as Justin Credible took on Sabu. The boss' statement would ring true after Callihan stormed the ring post match to lay out the extreme legend. The lights went dark & all that remained in the ring were broken chairs, broken tables, & a broken kendo stick.

On Sunday, Sami posted a video on his social media saying that he wasn't sorry for what he did & reiterated that extreme was dead. One has to wonder what Sami's opponent on February 4th, "THE INNOVATOR OF VIOLENCE" TOMMY DREAMER, has to feel about such a bold statement. The 2 time ECW World Heavyweight Champion is no stranger to the extreme style of wrestling or to ultraviolence, having competed here in the Combat Zone briefly in 2001. A decade can change a person though. There are those that say that Dreamer has gotten soft in that span of time. There are those that say the man who was the heart & soul of ECW is no longer extreme. There are those, like Sami Callihan, who say that after this past weekend...extreme is truly dead. If Dreamer's career has taught us anything though, it's that you can never count him out.

On Saturday, February 4th in Indianapolis, generations will collide as the personification of extreme battles a man who many fans are labeling as the Combat Zone's franchise player. Tickets are on sale now in the CZW Pro Shop; you can order them by Clicking Here. Remember, this event is one day before the Super Bowl; only 5 minutes from Lucas Oil Stadium. Be there for what is easily one of the most anticipated matches in all of professional wrestling this year...CALLIHAN vs. DREAMER!
