As we previously reported, Roger Artigiani will be departing as leaseholder of the former ECW Arena today. He will remain with the building to oversee the CZW and EVOLVE double header on January 22nd, 2012, but after that Joanna Pang will take over the management.
CZW’s DJ Hyde is still planning to meet with Pang to discuss having events there beyond that, but nothing has been confirmed. The aforementioned events are scheduled to be the last ones as of now. The plan is to remodel the building once the events are done.
Some readers asked about the Hardcore Hall of Fame banners that hang over the Arena. According to Artigiani, they will be removed but will remain in his possession. He says that the banners and other artifacts will be maintained and not discarded.
Tickets for the EVOLVE event are already on sale at www.dgusa.tv. The following are scheduled for that event: DGUSA Champion Johnny Gargano, Chuck Taylor, Ricochet, Sami Callihan, Bobby Fish, Uhaa Nation and more. CZW’s event is also on sale at www.CZWrestling.com. No matches have been announced yet.
There are also plans for a bus trip from NYC to the building for the final events.
