God and Jesus Help Us, God and Baby Jesus Help Us...

This Tuesday sees the world premiere of MTV's new thing, Wrestling Society X. It stars (among others) New Jack, Justin Credible, and Vampiro. Oh, and the insufferable douche in the clip above. MTV's preview clips make the thing look pretty rad, but bear in mind: if the show's only half-an-hour long, and MTV plans to clutter it up with a lot of reality show malarkey, AND the Clipse are going to perform (a much better idea than an X-Pac match, to be sure), how much time do you think that leaves for all the spot-happy gymnastics pictured on their website?

Whatevs. The first episode is supposed to have two matches. One of them is going to be a ten-man royal rumble with electrified ring ropes, and this is shaping up to be the worst garbage wrestling abortion to sully wrestling's good name(?) since... oh, since the last time MTV dabbled in pro wrestling.

It's a sad state of affairs when your play-by-play announcer can only be described as a "poor man's Don West."

With that said, at this point I would rather watch 6-Pac and Wrestle Society X than Test and ECW.
