It�s Wedding Bells & Wrestling Rings As MTV Greenlights Explosive New Series, �Bam�s Unholy Union� & �Wrestling Society X�

Skateboard Pro & Jackass Alumni Bam Margera Returns To Take On His Next Death Defying Stunt � Marriage; Plus, Gritty, Dirty & Dangerous, MTV Pushes Wrestling Competition To New Levels

Both To Debut In January 2007

Santa Monica, CA (December 14, 2007) � Unveiling an explosive slate of new programming, MTV today announced the greenlight of two new series, �Bam�s Unholy Union,� and �Wrestling Society X.� In a triumphant return to MTV, skateboard pro and �Jackass� alumnus Bam Margera faces his biggest adventure yet as he prepares to take the vows with his bride-to-be, Missy, in what is guaranteed to be an anything-but-traditional wedding in �Bam�s Unholy Union.� MTV will also introduce, �Wrestling Society X,� the greatest, dirtiest, and most dangerous sports entertainment program that throws out the glam of wrestling, and piles on the grappling action every week from an undisclosed bunker where danger is never far away. Both series are set to make their debut in January 2007.

�Bam�s Unholy Union� will document the lives of Bam, finance Missy, and all the friends and family during the months leading up to the anticipated wedding, and culminating with the big day itself. MTV�s cameras will capture Bam as he tackles a world that is completely foreign to him. From wedding planners to picking out fine china to bachelor parties, Bam will inevitably throw curveballs into the process throwing everything off course. For Missy, she has only a few short months to find a dress, get a caterer, find a venue, send out invitations and plan the entire wedding. And, of course, April and Phil, a few random uncles, and his buddies, Dunn, Dico and Rake, will all be along for the ride. Margera has previously starred in MTV hits "Viva La Bam" and "Jackass."

Each week on �Wrestling Society X,� the most talented warriors the world has ever known will battle each other and their surroundings, creating an experience that will alter viewers lives irrevocably. Featuring an onslaught of death-defying feats, aerobatic maneuvers, and truly athletic performances, �Wrestling Society X� will showcase the unique talents of some of the best in the business including aerial assault artist Jack Evans, the arrogant catalog models, Matt Sydal & Lizzy Valentine, the amazing third generation heir to a wrestling legacy Teddy Hart, as well as the likes of former World Champions Vampiro and Sean "6-Pac" Waltman. Also appearing in each episode will be a very special musical guest, performing live in front of hundreds of rabid fans and the fiery combatants.

For �Bam�s Unholy Union,� Terry Hardy, Michael Bloom, and Joe DeVito are Executive Producers for Sonar Entertainment. Bam Margera is Executive Producer. Lauren Dolgen and Michael Ireland are Executives in Charge for MTV.

�Wrestling Society X� is produced by Big Vision Entertainment in conjunction with MTV. Houston Curtis is Creator and Executive Producer. Sam Korkis is also Executive Producer. Michael Ireland and David Gross are MTV�s Executives In Charge.

For both series, Lois Curren is EVP, MTV Series Entertainment & Programming.
