December of 2015 Michael Hyde would win "The All Out Rumble" Battle Royal to become the first ERA United States Champion. March 2016 Matt Cross was finally defeated by Justyn Michael. Less than one week later Extreme Ring Action was a featured attraction at the 2016 Extreme Thing Sports & Music Festival at Desert Breeze Skate Park April 2. The main event featured new champion Justyn Michael successfully defending the ERA Championship against Sinn Bodhi. ERA briefly ran a television series on the KGNG network called Fury TV, which featured the stars of ERA in pre-recorded matches. The pair of Justyn Michael and Michael Hyde represented ERA in Episode 1 of Noize TV, in a segment filmed at Extreme Thing that aired on the KGNG network as well. In April 2017 the founders moved to the state of Michigan where ERA will continue with much of the original roster.
