“Dark Side of the Ring” is officially Vice TV’s highest-rated show in the history of the cable network.
The wrestling docu-series dives into the darkest stories from the golden age of professional wrestling and trying to find the truth at the intersection of fantasy and reality.
As someone who was a wrestling fanatic as a kid – I absolutely LOVED this series and it completely blew my mind!
The second season of the series launched at the end of March with a two-part special about the story of Chris Benoit, who in 2007, killed his wife Nancy and 7-year-old son Daniel before hanging himself.
Other stories this season include the murder of Dino Bravo, the controversial “Brawl for All” tournament that led to career-ending injuries, the feared career of New Jack, David Schultz’s violent run-in with a 20/20 reporter, the death of Nancy Argentino, Jimmy Snuka’s girlfriend, the inside story of wrestling’s ultimate tag team partnership Hawk and Animal; Herb Abrams’ fanatical attempt to build a wrestling empire and the devastating story of Owen Hart’s stunt that went tragically wrong.
