You may or may not know who Luke Hawx is, but we all know Shane Douglas.
Hawx was known as Altar Boy Luke in XPW, and is a former XPW King of the Deathmatch and Tag Team Champion. He tagged with Al Katrazz in MTV's Wrestling Society X, has done dark matches and enhancement work for WWE and is currently running his own wrestling school: NWA-Wildkat Sports, in his hometown of New Orleans, LA.
If you don't know who Luke Hawx is, open a new window, go to Youtube and type in his name.
Now onto Douglas.
During CZW's January 14th show at the ECW Arena, Shane Douglas broke the news, via taped video, that Extreme is coming back to Philadelphia. Yes, another ECW reunion show. The Extreme Reunion will take place on April 28th, at the Pennsylvania National Guard Armory. The official site is here.
My take: Hawx is a great worker, and I'm glad he's gotten away from death matches. His school, which he runs with Orlando Jordan, is doing great and puts on shows of PPV caliber. To me, XPW was a poor man's ECW, and I don't have any faith in MEXPW doing better. As for Douglas, he can't always blame Vince McMahon, Ric Flair and Dixie Carter.
Don't tell Vince and Dixie that you're running a show? Shane, no one cares that your'e booking an ECW reunion, no one cared about TNA's Hardcore Justice. There's no market for extreme nostalgia anymore. Extreme Reunion is going to be a train wreck of a show, filled with out of shape hacks. The only one that's worth a damn is Jerry Lynn.
