Dark Side of the Ring returns with Pillman, Ultimate Warrior, and more – Cageside Seats

Vice’s critically acclaimed Dark Side of the Ring documentary series returns for a third season on Thurs., May 6, at 9 p.m. Eastern.

The first two seasons of the documentary series covered controversial and/or tragic topics such as the Chris Benoit murder/suicide, Owen Hart’s death at Over the Edge ’99, the Montreal Screwjob, the Von Erich family, New Jack, and the murder of Bruiser Brody. The premiere episode of Season 3 is scheduled to cover the life and death of Brian Pillman, so they’re starting out with a loose cannon as well as commentary from Stone Cold Steve Austin.

The trailer for the upcoming season also teases new episodes on the Ultimate Warrior, Dynamite Kid, the WCW/NJPW show in North Korea, Nick Gage, and Grizzly Smith. Some of the wrestling personalities who will be on hand to discuss these topics include Jon Moxley, Chris Jericho, Eric Bischoff, Jim Cornette, David Arquette, and Jake “the Snake” Roberts. There will be 14 total episodes in all, making this the biggest season yet.
