If you are a wrestling fan and haven’t had a chance to watch any of VICE’s Dark Side of the Ring episodes, you are missing out. They include AEW star Chris Jerico and other wrestlers.
VICE released an updated schedule for the remainder of season two. It includes “extended” editions of previous episodes.
Next week’s episode examines the unforgettable encounter between Dr. D David Schultz and reporter John Stossel.— Dark Side of the Ring (@DarkSideOfRing) April 22, 2020

April 27th (9 PM ET): “Benoit” Extended Cut
April 28th (8:30 PM ET): “The Assassination of Dino Bravo” Extended Cut
April 28th (10:00 PM ET): “David Schultz & the Slap Heard Round the World”
May 4th (9:00 PM ET): “The Life and Crimes of New Jack” Extended Cut
May 5th (8:30 PM ET): “David Schultz & the Slap Heard Round the World” Extended Cut

PWInsider reports that extended cuts are expected for the final three episodes as well.
The series has been one of VICE’s biggest shows ever and there are plans for additional episodes as well as other Dark Side-style docuseries. There is so much content outside the wrestling ring, it makes sense to keep it going.
