    Dark Side of the Ring: Viceland docu-series

    I think that's just because it was a two-parter. The first season had the Brody episode up early, but no others so I imagine it will be the same this season. Brawl for All is next week. If it's just an excuse to expose a TV audience to Cornette and Russo hating each other I predict it'll be terrible.

    [1997-07-13-WCW-Bash at the Beach] Chris Benoit vs Kevin Sullivan

    Maybe the finish was the only one Sullivan would agree to do, perhaps not wanting to do a straight-up job considering their personal issues. The interview with Nancy's sister on the recent Dark Side of the Ring on the murders would suggest the heat between Chris and Kevin hit an all-time high that night. Just watched this again recently. Jimmy Hart is notably and uncharacteristically vicious with his outside interference.

    WWE Network... It's Here

    It would be a great time to lean into the older stuff now.

    WrestleMania 36

    It feels like we might be seeing the crumbling of an empire before our very eyes. What I thought would happen to WWE after the markets crashing in 2008 feels more tangibly real now. Between this and the Saudi deal potentially crumbling, they could be in trouble. I'm not expert but it can't be good when the stock goes down as it did recently, even to bounce back up again. It's like one of those crash diets that end up making you as fat or worse.

    Dark Side of the Ring: Viceland docu-series

    I've seen the Chris-Kevin Baltimore match where they went into the bathroom several times in the 90's and 2000's and maybe a few times after 2007. I do remember watching the matches they had the following year at SuperBrawl and Bash At The Beach live, but have not watched since but remember them as particularly brutal. Hard to say how much, but given what we know now if those two matches were total shoots I would not be surprised.

    Sad to say all of my memories of her watching wrestling as a kid invariably involved Chris (and getting a glimpse of her ECW run in the Apter mags), but seeing the old footage from Florida and the time in early 90's WCW really hammered how special she was. It is admirable how she threw herself into motherhood, seemingly done with wrestling herself and content being close to his friends and their wives.

    I remember watching a lot of CNN and MSNBC (I would have watched Fox if Vince McMahon went on Bill O'Reilly which was briefly rumored. Vinny Mac snapping on BillO would have been glorious to watch) for updates and interviews. I probably watched more wrestling on cable news than I was WWE or TNA programming at the time. The amount of ignorance and hidden contempt towards the business was infuriating but I couldn't stay away. Major respect to Chris Nowinski. The discoveries he helped make which made the public at large more aware of CTE, not only turned the discussion slightly away from all the easy "roid rage" stuff being tossed about, but it could have legitimized the physical toll of something people were easy to assume was "fake". He almost walks into frame heroically after all the cable news shit and the buzzards flying around the Benoit house.

    Sounds very likely, from the way Chavo put it.

    I never heard them before but I shouldn't be surprised. Why he never got a job in WWE after WCW folded makes a bit more sense now. Bastard. Dean Malenko has Parkinsons? I read that in one of the comments, not that I'm taking it as gospel but he did seem to tremor a little during his interview.

    Watching Vickie was really tough. She's such an amazing person for having gone through all that and to have survived it, whether through faith, family or the bond she has with who is left. Lots of open wounds here, and it's commendable that they are telling the story the best way they can. Did Nancy's sister make those allegations against Sullivan before? I vaguely remember that some of the things she said on podcasts were of some controversy.
