Dark Side of the Ring (2019) - This one is a docuseries that currently has three seasons available. I am a child of the 70s which means I was at the perfect age for the WWF wrestling heydays in the mid to late 80s. The local civic center was a regular stop on the WWF circuit at the time, so we saw our fair share of live shows back in the day as well. There also may have been an action figure sized wrestling ring and a boatload of rubber wrestling figures in the house. Heck, there may be one pint sized King Kong Bundy figure standing on someone's desk downstairs at this very moment. So, yeah there is a healthy dose of nostalgia there.
I actually enjoyed this series a lot. The stories are obviously well researched and the interviews really round them out. There seems to be an unending well of stories to tell here and there was plenty I didn't know, for example the Macho Man and Miss Elizabeth were actually husband and wife. Shrug. Who knew? I mean likely every wrestling fan aside from me. There were plenty of stories from the greats, but also a lot of "smaller" stories that were equally as interesting. Of course there were plenty of heart breaking stories to go around like Owen Hart and Chris Benoit, to name just two.
If you were/are a wrestling fan, these are a great watch!
We watched this on Crave.
