There’s a show on the VICE channel called Dark Side of the Ring, which is absolutely phenomenal.  It looks at historic moments in professional wrestling, gets as many people as it can to talk about those moments, and gives a no-nonsense, no-filter recap of the story.  Like, for example, here’s their overview of the infamous…

“Here’s my headshot, on the back, resume.”

I’m not going to lie to you. I enjoy the fine art of professional wrestling. Part sport, part ballet, part storytelling, all action. At one point, the wrestling team that I most enjoyed watching were the IIconics (yes, it’s with two I’s), the team of Australian wrestlers Peyton Royce and Billie Kay. However, some diseased…

Can 2020 get any worse? You gotta be jokin’ me!

During this pandemic, I have allowed myself very few pleasures, and one of them is the enjoyment of professional wrestling.  And the squad that catches my attention more often than…

Idiot tries to stalk, kidnap pro wrestler

There’s a very fine line between professional wrestlers and their fans.  When everyone stays in their lane, pro wrestlers can entertain the fans, and the fans can support the pro wrestlers in purchasing T-shirts and merchandise.

Chris Jericho, have you lost your mind???

The return of Dark Side of the Ring is tonight … can’t wait …

I am a long-time fan of professional wrestling.  Even back in the days before Wrestlemanias, back when matches were taped at the old Agricultural Building in Allentown, Pa. and syndicated throughout the Northeast on the old WWWF circuit. So the return of the documentary series Dark Side of the Ring has me totally stoked. Dark…
