Wrestling Society X Report for January 26, 2007  

This Tuesday night is the debut of Wrestling Society X on MTV, but as is the tradition with many shows that air on the MTV family of networks, they air episodes a few times before the actual debut.  It is billed as wrestling’s hottest youngest superstars and most lethal legends.  This show also features a mixture of wrestling and rock and roll.  Who will win the first Wrestling Society X Rumble? 

We start off with a performance by Zakk Wylde and Black Label Society.

Your announcers are Kris Kloss and Bret Ernst.  They talk about the WSX Rumble where two contracts are over the ring to determine who will be the first WSX Champion.  Zakk Wylde joins the announce team.

Match Number One:  Matt Sydal (with Lizzie Valentine) versus Jack Evans

Evans charges at Sydal, but Sydal with a kick thanks to some assistance from the ropes.  Evans tries for a rana, but Sydal throws Evans over the top rope to the floor.  Sydal with a corkscrew plancha onto Evans on the floor.  Sydal rolls Evans back into the ring and he chops Evans.  Evans reverses an Irish whip and then he hits a handspring back elbow that sends Evans over the top rope to the floor.  Evans with a springboard move, but Sydal hits a spin kick for a two count.  Sydal gets Evans on his shoulders for a submission hold as Evans is stretched like a pretzel.  Evans gets out of the hold and Evans with a series of kicks including a spin kick.  Evans with a handspring corkscrew plancha onto Sydal on the floor.  Evans with a leg sweep and then he tries for a corkscrew senton but Sydal moves out of the way.  Sydal with a pump handle driver for a two count.  Sydal with a standing moonsault for a two count.  Evans with a spin kick and Valentine grabs Evans’s feet.  Sydal pulls Evans into the center of the ring and Valentine holds on and she is pulled into the center of the ring.  Evans uses Valentine’s back as a springboard for a DDT on Sydal.  Evans goes up top and he hits the 630 splash for the three count.

Winner:  Jack Evans

It is time to take a look at a feature about the tag teams in Wrestling Society X.  Among the teams are Keepin’ It Gangsta, D.I.F.H., Trailer Park Boyz, and Team Dragon Gate.  We go to commercial.

We are back with comments from some of the participants in the WSX Rumble match.  First we hear from Justin Credible who says that he was invited to participate in the WSX Rumble.  He says that tonight is going to be his night.  He says that it is going to be Justin Credible.  Next we go to New Jack with Chris Hamrick.  New Jack tells Hamrick that his ass is going to be beaten to death because he has no right to be in the ring with him.  Teddy Hart says that he is the past, present, and future of wrestling.  Aaron Aguilera is on the phone and Kaos asks him if he is ready to take care of business.  Aguilera says that he is focused.

We see the rules for the WSX Rumble.  Each of the ten participants have drawn their numbers.  Every 45 seconds a new wrestler will enter the ring.  After the final wrestler enters the ring, the contracts will come into play.  Eliminations are the same as any battle royal(e), but this match features tables, electrical wires, and a cage with explosives.

We see highlights from the season of Wrestling Society X as we go to credits.

Wrestling Society X Thoughts:

When it is taken for what it is, an MTV production, it was what I expected.  Everything was over the top.  While some people might have problems with TNA announcers going over the top, the two announcers tonight as well as the ring announcer made Don West seem like he was in a coma.  Also with MTV, you know that you are going to get a lot of jump edits and weird crowd shots.  I guess that means that if Spike does not work out for TNA, they have a potential home.

If Balls Mahoney ever needs a stunt double, they can get Zakk Wylde to do it.

I thought the Evans/Sydal match was good, but it was too short and there was too much action packed into the match.

I liked the rules of the Rumble match.  It was a mixture of the Royal Rumble and War Games matches with the contracts coming into play only when the final man enters the match.

I thought the Rumble match was good, but the use of the electric wires and exploding cage came off as too cheesy. 

I guess they took WWE Women’s Battle Royal(e) rules and allowed New Jack to be eliminated by going through the ropes instead of over the ropes.

It looks like Wrestling Society X might be a good avenue for the fans who watched ECW only for the ultra-violence, XPW, Big Japan, and FMW for the Onita and Pogo matches.

There was a lot of action on this show, but it seemed like there was too much for the time allotted.  It definitely makes people want to see more, but I think if they depend on the same thing every week, it will get too tedious.
