URWL Supercard Chronology
Digital Mayhem 2008 Popular Demand 2008 Rebirth

URWL Popular Demand 2008 was a 2008 Unnecessary Roughness Wrestling League supercard. The event was held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California, on Christmas Day, December 25th, 2008. The event was unique for the URWL at the time because every aspect of the event was voted on by members of the URWL Rantboard. Concepts such as the theme music, logo, match stipulations and participants were fair game. The official event theme song was "Saints of Los Angeles" by Mötley Crüe.
