Dark Side Of The Ring Season 4 Subjects Revealed

Dark Side of the RIng DSOTR

VICE’s Dark Side of the Ring has been covering the underbelly of the wrestling world over three seasons delving into such topics such as the murder of Bruiser Brody, the life of Dynamite Kid, and the infamous Plane Ride From Hell. The most recent episode of the show aired in October of 2021, covering Vince McMahon’s steroid trial in the mid 1990’s.

While there was uncertainty about whether or not the series would be renewed after its third season, a new report from PWInsider confirms that a fourth season is currently being filmed. In addition, the report reveals a partial list of topics that will be covered in the upcoming season, including:

  • Abdullah the Butcher
  • Mike Awesome
  • Bam Bam Bigelow

The report also notes that Mick Foley, ‘Hacksaw’ Jim Duggan, Terry Funk, and Jim Cornette have all been interviewed for the new DSOTR season. Duggan’s involvement hints that there could potentially be an episode about the kayfabe-shattering time the Royal Rumble winner was arrested alongside the Iron Sheik, but this is purely speculation and has not been confirmed.

There is no information at this time as to when the new season of Dark Side of the Ring will hit the airwaves on VICE.

Jim Ross Felt Misrepresented During A Controversial Dark Side Of The Ring Episode

One man who’s unlikely to appear in the upcoming season of Dark Side of the Ring is WWE Hall of Famer and current AEW announcer Jim Ross, who explained on an April 2022 episode of Grilling JR that he felt misrepresented by the editing on the show, particularly when it came to the episode chronicling the Plane Ride from Hell. That episode stirred controversy online as a flight attendant alleged that she was sexually harassed by Ric Flair, a claim Flair himself vehemently disputed.

Jim Ross had this to say about the experience:

“Mixed, I have some problems with some Dark Side editing. I thought I was misrepresented a time or two on the edit. I admire those guys’ entrepreneurial spirit and I think it’s a good purpose, but I think sometimes, they bite into the apple of the dirt and they narrowcast a little bit too much for me. I’m still going to watch their shows, and I’m not sure I’ll be on any more of them simply because I had such an unfortunate negative afterthought of it.

“Those guys are good guys, they mean well but I think the edit was a little bit callous and not well thought out. I hope they continue to do those shows and if they continue, I’ll continue to watch. They should get better at what they do, we all have to get better.”
