- VICE announced the following details for their "Dark Side of the Ring" documentaries.
The series will examine the collision of fantasy and reality in the singular universe of professional wrestling — the only sport whose stars’ larger-than-life characters exist in and often out of the ring, telling some of the dark and untold stories around some of the sport’s all-time greats — stories that obsess hardcore wrestling fans and will compel new viewers alike.
From backstage controversies to mysterious deaths and unsolved homicides, this series explores the darkest stories from the golden age of professional wrestling – with each episode centered on a professional wrestling icon, including the tragic love story of Randy “Macho Man” Savage and Miss Elizabeth, the infamous “Montreal Screwjob” which stripped Bret Hart of his title, the locker room altercation that led to the death of Bruiser Brody, as well as the dark history of the Von Erich wrestling dynasty, the controversial death of “Gorgeous” Gino Hernandez and a look at the intense allegations against legendary female star The Fabulous Moolah.

- Jim Ross doesn't believe WWE should have used race in the Kofi Kingston storyline.
Race should never have been brought into the @TrueKofi storyline.— Jim Ross (@JRsBBQ) March 27, 2019
It’s a classic, underdog story.
Race, Religion & Politics have no place on rasslin tv, IMO.
