WWE PREVENTS JOEY STYLES FROM PARTICIPATING IN JOEY STYLES' EXTREMELY HARDCORE...
COMPANY WILL CONTINUE WITHOUT JOEY STYLES
Atlanta, August 19, 2005 World Wrestling Entertainment, Inc. (WWE) is preventing Joey Styles from participating in any way with JOEY STYLES' EXTREMELY HARDCORE. However, the company, JS Wrestling, Inc. has been re-branded and will be pushing forward by taping a pay-per-view wrestling event this Saturday night at EarthLink Live in Atlanta.
"I was approached to participate in JOEY STYLES' EXTREMELY HARDCORE well over one year before I signed a part-time, non-exclusive, two-year agreement with WWE in June in order to host ECW branded television projects. However, I am disappointed to announce that there is language in my WWE agreement which makes it necessary for me to resign from JOEY STYLES' EXTREMELY HARDCORE."said Joey Styles.
The company will continue with a new name and a new announcer but will feature the same wrestlers and style of wrestling that hardcore wrestling fans crave and sorely miss.
The card for this Saturday Night remains:
Former WCW World Champion vs. Former ECW World Champion
Dallas Page vs. Justin Credible with Francine and Jason
Hardcore Street Fight
Atlanta's New Gangstas, New Jack and Murder One vs. Balls Mahoney and Axl Rotten

Pitbull Gary Wolfe vs. Rotweiller Rodney Begnaud
North vs. South
Buffalo, NY's Mikey Whipwreck vs. Raleigh, NC's The Enforcer, CW Anderson
