In August of 2018, it was reported that VICELAND was working on a series of wrestling documentaries that would be entitled 'Dark Side Of The Ring'. VICELAND has pushed out the trailer for that series which will debut on April 10th and the first episode is covering Miss Elizabeth and WWE Hall Of Famer "Macho Man" Randy Savage. The stories of the Montreal Screwjob, Bruiser Brody, the Von Erich family, Gino Hernandez and Fabulous Moolah will be covered and here is the order of which those respective episodes will premiere:
* April 10 -- Randy Savage & Ms. Elizabeth
* April 17 -- Bret Hart and the Montreal Screwjob
* April 24 -- Bruiser Brody
* May 1 -- Kevin Von Erich and the Von Erich family
* May 8 -- Gino Hernandez
* May 15 -- Fabulous Moolah
The director of the film, Jason Eisener explained how he and his close friend came up with the idea to take a deeper look into the lives of the wrestlers that they watched on TV as children:
“As a kid, I grew up watching wrestling,” said Eisener during an interview with Entertainment Weekly. “I was a huge fan of Hulk Hogan, and The Undertaker, and Jake ‘The Snake’ Roberts. About eight years ago I started looking at wrestling again, and I started reading these stories from behind the scenes that were just so insane and larger than life. Me and my producing partner Evan, our love of wrestling has probably what has made us best friends. We thought, man, it would be so great to one day be able to examine the desperate lengths that these wrestlers went to, to protect the mystique of wrestling. That’s what I found so fascinating. I can’t think of any other art form in the world where the performer has to live their character into their everyday public life.”
