"I've never had the nerve to actually write a review of my own product...WSX is a first! If you are a fan of wrestling then you may already know that I am the Executive Producer/Co-creator of Wrestling Society X. I also own Big Vision Entertainment.
As many of you know, all of us at BVE pride ourselves on our unique wrestling content. The fact theat we were able to get WSX a shot on a major network was one in a million to begin with. And even though i begged the network not to put us up against ECW...we landed right against the ECW main event every week. On top of that, we were on the network during a huge state of flux.
This happens often in the TV industry and there is just nothing you can do about it. One thing I am thankful for is the fact that MTV granted us back the rights to sell the WSX season on DVD. There are so many people who put thier heart and soul into this show. It would take forever to thank all of them...so I will only point out one key player for now. You know him...you love him, Co-Creator Kevin Kleinrock! Kevin lives and breathes wrestling and this show has been his life from the moment it began.
For those of you who already saw the series on MTV, you will be so excited to see all the extras you get in this incredible compilation. Everything from the WSXtra episodes to script breakdowns, special videos and a lot more...not to mention the 10th NEVER BEFORE SEEN final episode! It really is a wonderful product.
In short, I am extremely proud of WSX and feel that dollar for dollar, this is one of the best wrestling DVD compilations of all time. And the price...is dirt cheap! Enjoy...give us your feedback. Thanks for endulging what is a "very rare" self promotion by reading my post.
All the best,
Wrestling Society X"

"When Wrestling Society X started on MTV, I said that I would not watch it on TV but I would buy the DVD. The thought of watching a "season finale," then waiting for the next season to be written, filmed, and produced did not appeal to me.
In truth, this promotion did more to open a new realm of wrestling ("stunt wrestling") than anything in the United States since the original ECW. It purposely went out of its way to defy wrestling convention, and I thought the show was well designed. Unfortunately, its key demographics were a bit thinly stretched, so it did not have an audience to carry its praises.
While I am not a fan of ECW or Japanese wrestling, I gave this DVD set a fair shake, and I enjoyed it. After watching Disc 2, I wasted no time putting in Episodes 9 and 10. These shows & matches are devoid of true wrestling, so stop thinking in terms of "babyface" or "heel," and don't expect emotional roller coaster rides. Instead, watch the shows knowing that you'll see crazy & amazing stunts - and many of them.
Love WSX or hate them, Billy Club hit the nail on the head in his review, "WSX (had) more of an American Gladiators or Battle Dome feel, rather than a serious wrestling company's show."
While WWE and TNA (and their fans) often take wrestling too seriously, Wrestling Society X was a great reminder that the most fun you can have with wrestling is by turning off your brain and just enjoying the excitement!"
So Much Potential, So Little Time

"If you have never heard of Wrestling Society X, it is probably because MTV pushed the organization out the door before it used the mat.
Slated for an initial season of 10, thirty-minute episodes, WSX debuted on Tuesday, January 30, 2007, at 10:30 pm and remained in that time slot through February 27 (episodes 1-4). The program was quickly wrapped up after that, with episodes 5-6 airing from 11 pm-midnight on March 13, episodes 7-9 shown from 12 am-1:30 am one day later and the final show for the season was never shown.
The four-disc DVD set features all 10 episodes, 10 programs which aired on the MTV website & Video on Demand and special features. The talent was impressive, with the roster including Vampiro, 6-Pac, New Jack, The Disco Machine, Justin Credible, Kaos and Teddy Hart.
The fast-paced action, with pinfalls counting anywhere - minus bulky storylines - and special musical guests for each episode was created by Kevin Kleinrock and Houston Curtis. Though developed with a keen interest in the 18-24 demographic, this is superb professional wrestling for fans of any age, especially for those who truly appreciate the old-school approach.
The potential was great for Wrestling Society X, but this first - and only - season was one for the ages.
