X-ARM meets Jersey Shore

We’ve been making fun of X-Arm for a while now, mainly because it’s a sleazy, trashy, retarded concept that looked like it had no chance of ever being realized. But when trying to guage what chance the arm-wrestling / shit-kicking hybrid had of being picked up, we forgot to factor in one very important thing: the hunger North American society has for sleazy, trashy, retarded television. And now, the undisputed masters of that genre have come sniffing around:

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) has confirmed with Davie that his promotion has teamed up with noted TV producer SallyAnn Salsano to produce XARM’s forthcoming live events and a reality-based series.

Salsano, the founder and president of 495 Productions, a California-based firm responsible for the production of “Jersey Shore,” as well other current and past reality hits such as “Repo Games,” “Disaster Date,” “Tool Academy,” “A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila” and “Nashville Star,” among others.

“Great TV means great characters, and the XARM world is packed with them,” Salsano said. “The XARM athletes are hungry, dangerous, diverse and as explosive as any characters on any successful show on television today.”

Yes, you read correctly. The people who brought you Jersey Shore are going to be producing X-Arm. This is actually a pretty damn interesting development. As a sports concept, X-Arm was doomed to failure. But as MTV reality disaster porn, it could be massive. Probably only for 15 minutes, but still. That’s long enough for everyone to make some cash, and once that happens who knows what kind of insane punching / kicking / sporting fusion will come up next? I always thought Ultimate Frisbee would be better with lots of headbutting…

    From the meat head version of the ufc on fox promo, the japan cock to this…is the world slowly becoming more insane when I am not paying attention?

    X-Arm is so dumb that even an endorsement from Jersey Shore (along with the production team) won’t get it beyond a single, streamed on the internet event. MTV is terrible, but X-ARM makes the sporting and production values of American Gladiators (reboot) look like the NFL playoffs in comparison. I can’t imagine them picking it up for even a one-time airing.

    Also – why do the competitors wear rash guards? It’s pretty much the only combat “sport” where you’re guaranteed not to be rubbing torsos together. There’s a table separating your bodies for fuck sake. They should wear chain-mail and gauntlets and then maybe I’d be slightly more intrigued.

    Of all the lies you’ve told and will tell, this is probably the biggest.

    I FUCKING HATE LOOKING @ YOUR NAKED BODY EVERY DAY.

    As much as you loathe the flaws of fatties made flesh, deep down you love the flesh.

    Do some plyo pushups while chanting the “R” word to burn off your gay rage.

    for some reason, i think dj thunder elbows and blackula are brothers that looks like Cleveland Brown. You know those weird black guys that sell “brain rocks” that cure cancer at the local Farmers Market, wearing 5 dollar knock off reebok running shoes, a hawaiian shirt and old mom jeans.

  • DJ ThunderElbows says:

    I’m mulatto-ish (German-Jew/Black Irish & Cuban/Jamaican) but otherwise I’m just like Cleveland.

    The other shit is most likely spot-on for The BJ tho.

    EDIT:  Oh shit!  I’m kind of a Quadroon!!!  Fuck yes!
