VICE TV has released a trailer for next week’s fourth episode of season two of its pro-wrestling documentary series Dark Side of the Ring, which will delve into the mysterious 1983 death of Nancy Argentino, the then-girlfriend of Jimmy ‘Superfly’ Snuka – a case which saw the wrestling legend arrested and indicted for murder some three decades later before his own death in 2017. Check out the trailer here…
DARK SIDE OF THE RING, the most watched show in VICE TV’s history, ventures even deeper into wrestling’s shrouded past, revealing the brutal and often tragic consequences of a life lived in the squared circle. Wrestling icon and former WWE superstar Chris Jericho narrates the series.
Season two dives into a new slate of wrestling stories that include: wrestling superstar Chris Benoit’s double murder suicide that shocked the world; the murder of Dino Bravo; the controversial “Brawl for All” tournament that led to career-ending injuries; the feared career of New Jack; David Schultz’s violent run-in with a 20/20 reporter; the death of Nancy Argentino, Jimmy Snuka’s girlfirend; the inside story of wrestling’s ultimate tag team partnership Hawk and Animal; Herb Abrams’ fanatical attempt to build a wrestling empire; and the devastating story of Owen Hart’s stunt that went tragically wrong.
Dark Side of the Ring airs on Tuesdays on Vice TV.
