Welcome one and all to the 2nd episode of the Wrestling Society X review series. Last week was an interesting start as Jack Evans beat Matt Sydal and Vampiro and 6-Pac grabbed the contracts to become #1 Contenders for the WSX Title match tonight. There’s a lot on the plate tonight so let’s get crackin’!
Our special musical guest this week was Three 6 Mafia, and I note this because all night both DJ Paul and Juicy J are on commentary and J says some of the most unintentionally funny or just plain bizarre things I have heard on commentary since Art Donovan. I love them so much, I’ll make sure to highlight some as we progress through the program.
We get a recap of last week’s giant ass Battle Royal as we head into our opening contest.
Match #1- Human Tornado vs. Luke Hawx
Tornado comes out and just looks stylish as all hell, so much so I made it the heading photo of the review. J remarks that “He looks like the old Michael Jackson”. Tornado and Hawx get into a test of strength but Hawx gets owned by Tornado’s styling and profiling. Tornado is bounced into the ropes and Hawx attempts a kick to the nuts, but Tornado no sells it, having “Balls of Steel”. I love it.
Hawx gets some heat with an awesome array of moves until Tornado does something I can only describe as a Leapfrog leg scissor takedown over the top rope followed by an AMAZING tope senton over the top rope and barricade onto Hawx! Have I mentioned how much I love Human Tornado? Juicy J agrees as he slurs his way into say “That Little Skinny Dude can move man!”
Both get back in the ring as we get constant reverse Irish Whips into a corner which leads into springboard Tornado DDT which gets the 3 count. Good fun match for what it was. That Tope was insane and will easily be the highlight of the show.
Rating: 2 Fly for a White Guy out of 5
But we narry get a breather as Aaron Agulera comes in and attacks Hawx only to have Alcatrazz come in for the save, followed by Kaos as he brings in tables and ladders. Kaos sets up Alcatrazz on the table but Agulera is too busy being distracted by attractive ladies ringside to notice Hawx rebounding and putting Kaos through a table. Agulera’s face when he realizes what happens is priceless.
We cut to a promo from “M-Dogg20” Matt Cross and Teddy Hart, who will debut as a tag team next week as “The Filth and the Fury”. Guess who is which and win a free cookie.
Match #2- That 70’s Team (Disco Machine and Joey Ryan) vs. Team Dragon Gate (Horiguchi and Yoshino)
That 70’s Team comes out and does their dancing schtick as Juicy J comments that they make “Starsky and Hutch look like *BLEEP*”. Feel free to replace that with any word.
We get fast paced and fundamental action to start things off as J again comments that “They lost girlfriends for being that quick”. I don’t know why, but now I feel the need to do a review of the Urban Wrestling Federation’s first PPV. We get a funny spot where Joey runs out of breath and Disco tosses him an inhaler as TDG looks on in befuddled confusion. We get more comedy spots as DM gyrates above one of TDG and a sunset flip on Joey that depants him. The mindless fast fun continues until Joey lands a superkick on Yoshino to pick up the W. TDG, not ones to be humiliated by people who listen to the “Saturday Night Fever” album on repeat, retort by breaking their disco ball as the crowd gleefully chants that “Disco Sucks”.
Quick match with comedy spots. Nothing else to it.
1.5 Disco Ducks out of 5
We get another tag team promo showcasing the “Trailer Park Boys” for next week.
Match #3- Vampiro vs. 6-Pac for the WSX World Heavyweight Championship
I noticed the belt seems similar to the WWF Smoking Skull title as Vampiro makes his way to the ring as Juicy J remarks that he “is a man I wouldn’t want to meet in a dark alley”. My sentiments exactly, Mr. J. A casket is at ringside for a spot later (not a spoiler if it’s obvious) as Pac spray’s Vampiro in the face with water as the action gets underway. Pac goes for two Bronco Busters but Vampiro reverses the 2nd one. Vampiro goes up top for a corkscrew senton but misses as Pac gets more heat on him.
Dropkick by Pac sends Vampiro to the outside as Pac follows up with a tope senton onto the floor and goes for the pin? Apparently there is a falls count anywhere rule in WSX. Go figure. Vampiro gets on a comeback and sends Pac into the turnbuckle in an awesome spot that is then cut to a hot girl in the crowd. I love this show.
Vampiro sets up a table on the outside but Pac counters and puts Vampiro through his table with a tornado DDT that only gets a 2 count. Pac also hits the 6-Factor (X-Factor but not copyrighted) and Vampiro also kicks out at 2. Vampiro mounts a comback and tombstones Pac through the casket as fireworks go off to secure the 3 count and win the title.
As a match, I had no problems with this what so ever and as a way to build Vampiro as this dominant force, it worked well. Overall, pretty good match and ending to the 2nd episode.

WSX chugs along with another fun show capped off with a solid main event. Nothing more, nothing less.
Final Grade: 2.5 out of 5
