Dark Side Of The Ring documentary TV series
Basically this is a recently aired docuseries that just concluded the first season this week. Personally, I liked it.
The overall tone of these episodes reminds me somewhat of The Resurrection Of Jake The Snake (2015). Moreover, the episode about Moolah is the least interesting... It reminds me of The Self-Destruction Of The Ultimate Warrior (2005). That is to say, the focus of the episode is more to do with questions about her character than her contribution to wrestling as a woman in a male dominant business. Some people appreciate her, and some people took liberties in the way she conducted herself in business, as well as how she treated others in order to maintain her foothold in wrestling.
Actually, Gino's the only wrestler that I've never heard of. He seemed like a cross between an early Ric Flair and "The Model" Rick Martel. Indeed, he would've found a niche in the WWF during the late Eighties. However, Gino likely wouldn't have lasted long as a heel with the eventual arrival of Flair during the early Nineties.
Episode #1 - "The Match Made In Heaven" 5/5
Episode #2 - "The Montreal Screwjob" 4/5
Episode #3 - "The Killing Of Bruiser Brody" 5/5
Episode #4 - "The Last Of The Von Erichs" 4/5
Episode #5 - "The Mysterious Death Of Gorgeous Gino" 4/5
Episode #6 - "The Fabulous Moolah" 3/5
Verdict: I recommend it.
If there's a second season, these are some names of wrestlers that I would suggest for the next six (or more) episodes.
Owen Hart, Chris Benoit, Dino Bravo, Curt Hennig, Sensational Sherri, Crash Holly, Chris Kanyon, Bam Bam Bigelow, Junkyard Dog and Luther Lindsay
