VICE TV's Dark Side of the Ring has been riveting throughout its first two seasons, living up to its name by tackling stories like the death of Owen Hart, Chris Benoit, and more. That's not set to change in season 3, and now we have our first details about the new season and a brand new trailer giving us a glimpse as to what to expect from it when it debuts on Thursday, May 6th at 9 PM EST. The trailer features interviews with Jon Moxley, Eric Bischoff, Jake the Snake, Chris Jericho, Jim Cornette, and David Arquette, and you can watch the trailer in the video above.
As for the stories themselves, we get some of the early lineup, which includes episodes that dive into the stories of Brian Pillman, Nick Gage, the Collision In Korea, Ultimate Warrior, Grizzly Smith, and Dynamite Kid, though that will make up just the first 6 installments of the 14 episode run, and more episodes will be revealed later this month.
