Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone knows what happened to the homegrown stars of XPW? Specifically, Supreme, Messiah (post 2k14), Rivera, Kloss, Angel, Kraq, Westside, Carlito, Steele? I know about Kaos, Jimmy (a little bit), Dynamite D, Alter Boy Luke, Rizzono, Pogo, GQ Money, Tool, and Webb.
I know a lot of people hate XPW to this day, but I dug it. Any help is appreciated. So little info out there about these guys. Thank you.

I am friends with Messiah on my Facebook. It appears he doesn't wrestle anymore, but he sounds like he would do it again.
I liked XPW at first. The 1999 stuff with former ECW talent being there helped make it seem legit. I didn't care for the long reign of White Trash Johnny Webb being champion. I know that when Shane Douglas got the power, he brought XPW back to Philly and tried to make it the 2nd coming of ECW, with using all the recent ECW talent that never got picked up by WWE.

I remember Zandig was talking to him one day on status or pic he had posted, and Messiah said he would work for Zandig again of he got something up and running. That was like a year ago I think, so I am not sure what happened in between that time and now.
Kriss Kloss ended up doing commentary for some indy feds in California. I am not sure if he still does now.
I am pretty sure that Joey Kaos just posted some pics on his FB too of past XPW relics in some reunion or something.
On a side note, it's funny how Rob Black HATES professional wrestling now. Almost like he got into it in 1999 because wrestling was hot at the time and trendy. Then again, I have seen Black's 'other' video stuff and that wasn't that greatly produced either.

Zandig is kind of back with CZW, which Messiah was king in, so it would be great to see him back. I could see him, supreme, and Jimmy do an xpw-ish invasion angle there. I would mark out hard.
I knew some things about Kloss, Supreme (Became a painter and tags with his son sometimes), and Rivera (did some lucha work, but got back into music...was supposedly joining a Corey Taylor band), but everyone drops out of sight like in 2014. I need to check out that Kaos pic.
Black is, well, someone I choose to forget. He did bring XPW out, and had some decent mic work, but after the thumb and everything else, that is where the respect stops. He does still own the rights to everything, but wants to sell it all. Here's to hoping s4 and after of XPW tv come to dvd one day.

Are you sure Black owns the XPW TV rights still??
Shane Douglas released a whole bunch of XPW matches on those Hardcore Homecoming DVDs back in 2006. And the Forever Hardcore Documentary had XPW matches too on it. So I am wondering if Shane owns some of them too??
I also wanna say that Kaos, Messiah and them tried to start up MXPW. It was an off branch of what XPW was. I wanna say they tried to do that back in 2013 or so.

Mxpw is not a acronym I recognize, but there was a mexpw that, iirc, halloween and damien started. That is where an interview talked about how much a legend Supreme is down there.
I went to xpw online not long ago, and I believe it is Rob that got it back. Around a couple of years ago it was stated Rob wanted to bring XPW back fully. I remember a couple shows to start a season awhile back, but outside of the events, nothing materialized. If it was a roster led startup, instead, like the mxpw you speak of, it had a shot. Those fans sure used to enjoy the show, even in a rodeo arena.
