Hogan complained on Twitter: "Just watched VICE the dark side of Macho Man 5 out of 10 ,really good but relied too much on a couple of pictures someone had and believed stories that were half truths and some that were just wrong,what a shame they didn’t check all sources"

Dark Side of the Ring replied: "Thanks for watching. We reached out to you to participate in this but you declined. We would've love to have your POV for this story. Hope we can get you on the next one."

I expect the 5 out of 10 review from Hogan because his ex wife Linda was interviewed for this  She was the one that provided said photos that were shown and gave the impression that, like Liz, she was on the road with Hulk all the time, saying it was her job to wash the blood off of his boots n the hotel bathtub every night,

I just watched the Brody one and it was fantastic. They touched on and alluded to the genesis of the bad blood back to the old WWWF where Brody worked very stiff with a fairly green Gonzalez. One thing they did get wrong was that the documentary kind of implied that they (WWWF) were grooming Gonzalez to be the next big Puerto Rican star. This was not true from what I remember seeing. He was basically being groomed for Manny Soto or Pete Sanchez's spot. Certainly not Morales. Gonzalez put on some very good matches in New York but he never had an important win in his three or four years here. Another part of the show that was very powerful was Tony Atlas calling Abdullah the Butcher a liar. Tony Atlas sounded completely credible and came off really well. Watch this one, you won't be disappointed.

The Macho one has too much Linda in it for me. Being married to a wrestler doesn’t make you a wrestler just like being married to a politician doesn’t make you a politician unless you actually are

What does being or not being a wrestler have to do with it? She and Liz were apparently friends and spent quite a bit of time together.  Just because she wasn't in the business herself doesn't make her perspective invalid. She experienced what she experienced and Liz told her things.

Ehhh after hearing her talk the second time I turned it off. I’d have to watch the first few minutes again to tell you exactly what irritated me.

Linda really did not bother me in that episode. I really did not have any pre-conceived opinion about her before watching it.

I skimmed through it again and the part about a new learning curve and everything she said in that period annoyed me. She isn’t in the business her husband is. It’s like when fans say we won the World Series; uhh no you didn’t they did.

Anyone have a link to Ep 2? For some reason Viceland.com will not take my cable sign in and you tube wants people to pay for it.

I have seen 3 out of 4 now and am about 10 minutes in on BB's. If I were to rate it, I would probably say 7.5 out of 10. Most of the information is not new. The Von Erich story has been covered, elsewhere, much better.

The screwjob was really good, especially with Hebner. You could see the box he was in. Too bad Michaels didn't provide any background. I know all that ground has been covered before as well. I did laugh that both Cornette and Russo tried to take credit for it. Then, it became about their hate for one another and the episode finishes on that? Kind of bizarre.

The Macho Man/Liz thing was fine. I suspect Linda H had her carny running a bit. I am sure she was more involved than she let's on. Whatever. People get divorced. It happens. Seeing Eric Bischoff now say he respects Lex Lugar is like seeing Bill Cosby saying he respects Chris Brown.

I have enjoyed the series so far though and have to say that Cornette is entertaining.
