After one of the wildest Indy wrestling shows in a long time, Extreme Rising’s live show from Philadelphia was one of the biggest highlights of 2012.

With a new Extreme Rising World Heavyweight champion crowned, a cage match that tore the house down and a card filled with unpredictability, this show was one of the best independent shows of the year.

It’s just a matter of time before this company gets a television deal.

The wild night was recapped by the boys of Ring Rust Radio with some great Twitter reaction, full results and highlights of the event.
