Backstage Raven & New Jack Issues At Extreme Rising


Source: Pwinsider

— The Gangstas (New Jack & Mustafa) were scheduled to face BLK OUT in a Steel Cage match but New Jack had injured his ankle at the Pittsburgh iPPV and openly announced he needed surgery and wasn’t happy with the promotion for not fronting the money needed. The company pulled him from the show, feeling they couldn’t put him in the ring after he announced he was hurt. New Jack got angry and after some arguing back and forth, all sides came to an agreement. Jack was then booked to do a run-in, get hurt and be taken out. In the midst of all this, Mustafa (who gets flown in from Las Vegas, where he lives) was canceled and it was too late to get him back on the show, so instead Thomas Rodman dressed up and impersonated Mustafa wearing a black hoodie. Security grabbed him as he left the dressing room and most of the crowd was none the wiser.

— Raven was very vocal backstage about too many people being allowed in the back to visit. He also complained about The Blue Meanie’s guests being there. The company is going to lock down the backstage area for future shows.
