Re: Is XPW really that violent?
The violence factor really isn't too bad compared to some of the other deathmatches that are out there. I think the main reason for the 18+ logos all over their DVDs is for marketing. They try to show themselves as being this super violent and edgy product that you won't see anywhere else and has to be seen to be believed. It is violent and bloody for sure, but not to the extent that they market it as. And there is a lot more violent stuff that can be found elsewhere.
And it's an effective marketing strategy since there are so many members here that can say they were duped into buying one of their DVDs. When I was first branching out of WWE they were a company that I tried because it looked to be the exact opposite of mainstream wrestling. The DVD catches your eye and it makes you think it's this underground fight club wrestling DVD.
It's not, the product is absolute garbage, as in the worst wrestling I've ever seen. But they did get me to make a a couple of purchases before I realized what I bought.
