Question: Should Challenge TV be showing Zema Ion v Jesse Sorensen in their UK Against All Odds broadcast?

I just put the TV on to Challenge TV to watch the Impact Against All Odds pay-per-view.

And then I turned it off again.

You see, I knew that Zema Ion v Jesse Sorensen was the first match on the card for a number one contender’s slot in the X-Division.

But I also know how that match finishes. And so does every other wrestling fan in the UK.

Do we really need to see it? I don’t think so. It’s at the start of the show. It lifts right out (as Rachel said to Phoebe about their Friends-hip group).

Of course, I could be being harsh on the broadcaster here – it’s possible that they’re not going to show the end of the match. [Edit: I’m told that they didn’t actually show the spot itself, although they did apparently show the aftermath.] But then I’m not going to know, because there is no way I am even going to risk the chance that I am going to watch a man break his neck on my television.

What do you think?

    “No doubt about it, interesting start here at Against All Odds” says the commentary team.

    Heartbreaking, more like. No one wants to see anyone getting hurt like that.

      I just commented on Twitter that I’ve seen awful injuries being shown on the news, but they usually precede it with a warning so you can look away because seeing another human being seriously hurt is traumatic. Showing Ion-Sorensen like that is offering it up for our entertainment.

    • Carrie says:

      I also sort of still feel that even if they edited out the spot itself, showing the match itself is still a bit macabre. But I’m not sure why I feel like that.

  2. […] saw it last week, when Jesse Sorensen broke his neck in his match against Zema Ion at the start of the Against All Odds […]
