The latest word on the status of Dark Side of the Ring

Nov 2, 2022 - by James Walsh

While the creators of Dark Side of the Ring said the popular wrestling docuseries would continue later on at some point, there is still no official word yet on the future of the series. Dave Meltzer reported an update on the show’s return on today’s edition of Wrestling Observer Radio.

According to Meltzer, subjects have already been interviewed for the next season of the show. Meltzer himself has appeared as an interview subject in previous seasons.

While none of the subjects have been confirmed, Meltzer stated that he has heard there will be an episode on WWE Hall of Famer Kane, aka Glenn Jacobs. Additionally, Meltzer stated that he heard “thirdhand” that Jim Cornette was asked to appear in the Kane story, but he reportedly turned it down “for political reasons.”

Jacobs was recently re-elected as mayor of Knox County, Tennessee in August. It’s not yet clear what a Dark Side of the Ring episode regarding Kane would be about, or if it would be related to his political career.

VICE TV has not yet announced a fourth season of Dark Side of the Ring and what the episode subjects will be. The latest project from the creators of the show, Tales From the Territories, is currently airing on Tuesday nights on VICE TV. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson also serves as executive producer of the show.

    Ring Boy Scandal
    Marty Jennety
    Saudi Arabi deal
    Pill and alcohol abuse as a whole
    Heroes of wrestling PPV
    Sensational Sherri
    Vince McMahon sex scandals
    WWE having Roman Reigns fake cancer to get over( People tell me I am crazy, but this was as clear as night and day. They are bad people who do bad things for business and money)
    Jeff Hardy

    Of all of those topics, the only ones you’ll get a full 60 minutes of material from is Jannetty, Sunny, Sherri, the HOW PPV, and the sex scandals (though the willingness to do another Vince story may not be there).
    Another good topic would be Heyman and the bounced checks would be another great episode.

    Sunny’s would EASILY fit two 60 minute shows. But there’s no point in doing one yet until her latest run in with the law is over.
