I was just wondering if anyone remembers wrestling society X (WSX). If you do do you have fond memories or do you cringe at the very mention of it's name?
Here's a few of my thoughts on this MTV style promotion.
The half hour episodes were cool for what they were, which was presented in true MTV fashion from the wsx arena (a modified MTV studio).Music bands, loud obnoxious anouncers, guest commentators who mostly didn't have a clue what they were seeing and heavily edited matches that eliminated any selling and focused 100% on the awesome moves these guys pull off. They had an awesome roster. Evan Bourne as a heel. Jack evans. The human tornado. Vampiro. Colt cabana was brilliant as Matt classic. so many more.
The tag team division was given top priority. Teams such as teddy hart and m dogg 20, ruckus and baby slymm, team dragon gate and more.
There were some crazy matches involving electric coffins and steel cages. Vampiro was even on the receiving end of a special effect fireball that has to be seen to believe!!
Though it was never going to be a world beater it was definitely an alternative to mainstream wrestling and was something completely fresh.
Admitidly it had a lot of flaws. But If you look past these and take it for what it was, it was really quite a fun promotion.
I just wish it had of run for more than one season!
