The second season of Viceland's 'Dark Side of The Ring' docuseries focusing on some of the seedier and infamous stories throughout the history of pro wrestling is going to return in late-March. The news was first reported by PWInsider and confirmed independently with sources close to the show. There is no exact date for the season kickoff as of this point.
    The Chris Benoit story (expected to be the two hour focus)
    Brawl For All
    The life and times of Dino Bravo
    New Jack
    Herb Abrams, founder of the UWF
    The life and times of Owen Hart

Where does this actually air? Is this a channel? I found a few of the Season 1 episodes online, but not all of them.

I think I looked last year and didn't have it, but I'll check again.  I have FIOS.  I've never heard of this channel before this series though.  They're getting more obscure by the day.

It may show up as “VICE”. How I actually found it was searching for the program.

In case you didn't know season 2 starts on March 24th, which is a Tuesday.

From AV Club

The Chris Benoit tragedy will kick off season 2 of Viceland's Dark Side Of The Ring wrestling docuseries

We were big fans of Viceland’s Dark Side Of The Ring, a docuseries from director and executive producer Jason Eisener that dug deep into the darkest corners of professional wrestling, an industry that, by virtue of its relentless blurring of reality and fiction, can’t help but invite mystery.
Last season explored the death of Bruiser Brody, the curse of the Von Erich wrestling dynasty, and the icky legacy of women’s wrestling trailblazer Fabulous Moolah, among other stories, and the show’s sophomore outing will expand its scope even more, beginning with what’s perhaps the most taboo topic in all of professional wrestling: the Chris Benoit tragedy.


In 2007, Benoit, a 40-year old veteran who’d already established himself as one of the best in the business, killed his wife, Nancy, and their seven-year old son, Daniel, before hanging himself. It’s a tragedy the WWE has taken great lengths from which to distance itself, not to mention one riddled with head-scratching details, absurd conspiracies, and vital discussions of drugs, mental health, and CTE as it exists within the industry. As such, the show’s exploration of it will unfold across a two-hour premiere on Tuesday, March 24.
The series will also tackle the 1999 in-ring death of Owen Hart, the vicious murder of Canadian wrestler Dino Bravo, and the inner workings of doomed tag team The Road Warriors, as well as the controversial Brawl For All, the legacy of New Jack, David Schultz’s violent run-in with a 20/20 reporter, Herb Adams’ wrestling empire, and the death of Nancy Argentino, Jimmy Snuka’s girlfriend.
WCW and WWE (and now AEW) legend Chris Jericho narrates the series, which Eisener and executive producer Evan Husney says features many wrestlers and family members who “have never spoken out before.” Each episode will be followed by an after-show hosted by comedian Chris Gethard, who will dissect the episodes alongside a panel of guests, at least one of whom will powerbomb him through a table at some point. Well, we hope, anyway.

The subject matter for Season 2 seems to be geared towards a more casual fan who watches wrestling occasionally. Guys like us have heard these stories regurgitated ad nauseam. I think they're smart trying to do it this way. I have no desire to watch Chris, Chris jumps off top rope, Chris jumps off top rope hits head, Chris jumps off top rope hits head while injecting steroid. You get my drift. Of course I'm sure Viceland will never rise to such a level that the Benoit show is cited in various publications and even studied in universities as paradigms. Never will they reach those lofty heights.

The Dino Bravo episode could tell a good story if they got Gino Brito to talk about his arrest around the time Dino was killed. He was arrested for loansharking and bill collecting. That whole Montreal mob scene was very interesting, especially around when Dino was “whacked”.

Well see, now I contradicted myself and learned something. I had no idea that Gino Brito, or Louis Cerdan if you will, had those kinds of "friends".

Herb Abrams is a bit of deep dive into 90s wrestling history. Apart from Mick Foley's book, I don't know much about him, so this one might interest hardcore fans more than casual fans.

Dino’s wife was the niece of Vic Cotroni, the “Godfather” of Montreal (and Quebec really) and part of Ontario from around the late 40’s, up until late 70’s when he “retired” and handed over the reigns to Frank Cotroni. The Rizzuto’s pretty much took over the territory by 1980 after going to war with the Cotroni’s in the 70’s. 
The Montreal underworld has a fascinating history if you like learning about that “stuff”.

The Bravo one they have been working on at least since last season, since I helped them then.

Working with John Arezzi on his memoir, I can say that he helped Viceland a ton with unique footage on Woman / Nancy and especially Herb Abrams, who announced his whole crazy UWF plans at an Arezzi convention ... and then convinced John to run a UWF convention tied in with a TV taping ... and then Abrams stiffed the hotel on the bill.
