DARK SIDE OF THE RING

Recommended Posts

I really liked the episode. I’ve known at least a little bit about all the stories thus far, except this one. Don’t remember the upstart UWF, much less it’s coke fueled, prostitute loving, Vaseline/oil smeared owner. But it’s the perfect wrestling story

There's an episode about the road warriors in a couple weeks.  Hopefully they cover the early part of their career when they were as over as anyone has ever been and not just focus on when Hawk was too far gone to be out there

Of course they had to bring fucking Jesus into this. The first 45 minutes are worth a shit.

I really enjoyed the episode on the Road Warriors but was blown away by listening to Nikita Koloff talk like a regular American dude instead of the Russian raspy voice he used as a pro wrestler.  The Road Warriors were the baddest wrestlers I have ever seen.

I saw them wrestle Doom at the Sam Houston Coliseum back in the day. That was a great match.

Don’t have the first clue who New Jack is, but the guide info sounds fun. 
One of the most feared and controversial wrestlers of all time, New Jack's career reads like a criminal rap- sheet. Revealing the man behind the monster and his hardcore legacy.
 

I'd never heard of him either.  Holy shit about the reverse Rodney King bit and then calling the NAACP home-grown monkeys.


Had never heard of the guy until I saw him drop an elbow from the 2nd tier of Hammerstein Ballroom on a Dudley, IIRC. Only thing I could think is that this Mofo is really crazy. He might kill someone.

Holy shit the Owen Hart episode was a tough watch. Heartbreaking 

I remember watching that PPV live when it was all happening. Very heartbreaking situation. I was watching with my son, so the end segment with Oje made it get a bit dusty in the house.

Damn, that was a top-2 episode with the Von Erich one. I knew a wrestler fell to his death back in the day, but not all that. 

His wife is a fucking badass.

Same. I didn’t realize that 4-5 matches took place afterwards in Owen’s blood. I mean did I see/hear that right? Wouldn’t want to shut it down right after a fatal accident to preserve evidence, bring in some investigators, etc.

Vince gonna Vince

You heard that right. I remember when I was watching, even as a 17 year old, thinking "man that's fucked up."

obviously all sympathies to the Hart family, and holy shit JR and Lawler were put in a horrible situation there. "He died...and you are live in 10,9,8..."

Wish they could have got one Hart to speak somehow.
