Dark Side Of The Ring Not Renewed, Producers Starting New Wrestling Project Vice

The Dark Side of the Ring has not been renewed for a fourth season by VICE, per Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer.

UPDATE: Despite this report, Dark Side of the Ring has now heavily teased returning for a fourth season. VICE has also issued a statement confirming future plans for the show.

The series explored a number of controversial topics surrounding the world of pro-wrestling during its three season run.

In the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Meltzer summarised the recent controversy surrounding the show, writing:

Even though Dark Side of the Ring was the most popular show in the history of the station, it was not renewed for a fourth season. There was so much controversy coming off the Plane Ride from Hell story.

“Because they were relying on memories of people from 20 years ago and there were multiple flights back from Europe where guys were drunk and out of control, but the famous one didn’t have Vince McMahon or Linda McMahon on the flight, although people on that flight told them that they were.

“There were also complaints from Rob Van Dam, Dreamer and Ross about how they were depicted on that episode claiming to have been taken out of context. Ross had questioned appearing on the show going forward publicly.”

It was also pointed out Evan Husney and Jason Eisener of Dark Side of the Ring, and Dwayne Johnson’s Seven Bucks Productions are set to produce a new series for VICE, covering the territory days of wrestling.

AEW’s Jim Ross has spoken about this project, which you can read more about right here.

The Rock co-founded Seven Bucks Productions with Dany Garcia in 2012. The company has worked on projects such as 2019’s “Fighting With My Family” film based on WWE star Paige’s life and career as well as the NBC sitcom, “Young Rock”.
