DARK SIDE OF THE RING

Recommended Posts

I hadn’t heard of this, but I’ll have to check it out.  Unfortunately, there’s a lot of material for someone doing a show about the dark side of wrestling.   Hell, Vince McMahon is the biggest success story, and you could probably do a whole season on how fucked up he is, to say nothing of the truly sad cases.

It's on the Vice channel and the second season just premiered last night. I highly recommend. Even if you're not exactly a fan of wrestling. Hell, I haven't watched in 20 years, but the stories of their lives and backstage are fascinating.

Yep, I haven’t watched since the WCW days on channel 21 on Friday nights in DFW. That Von Erich episode last season was crazy good. 

All 6 season 1 eps are available on VICE On Demand, only an hour each. Benoit was the first 2-hour one.

It was very well done and pretty gut-wrenching. weird thing personally for me is that I met Nancy and first husband Kevin Sullivan at a gas station in Daytona when I was there for spring break in 1990 (he was quite proud to let me know she was his wife) , and also met Guerrero and Benoit at a 24 Hour Fitness probably about 2003 in Houston. Eddie was legit cool as hell and just as everyone described him Chris was very guarded.  Very tragic tale for sure

The Benoit episode was lengthened for TV, they pandered to too many interviews. 

Glad they appear to be going back to the one-hour formula now.
