Dark Side of the Ring: The Match Made in Heaven Thoughts

Dark Side of the Ring" The Match Made in Heaven (TV Episode 2019 ...
As much as I love professional wrestling, I'm behind the game when it comes to this series. Like podcasts in general, I rarely take in these documentaries, despite loving documentaries. I have no excuse other than the fact that I don't have a ton of time. That's not to say I haven't seen some of the show and I tend to read a lot about wrestling in general, so none of these things are going to be new necessarily. Still, it's time to fix this though I warn it'll be a slow dive.

This is the debut episode of Viceland's Dark Side of the Ring, which focused on Randy Savage and Miss Elizabeth and it was heavy with the soap opera drama. Seriously, high school level bullshit here. Now, this was actually very well done so don't make any mistake on that. It's just that I'm from a smaller town outside of Houston and the amount of childish bullshit I saw growing up there reminded me heavily of this episode and I'm just....over that kind of thing, if that makes sense. It perfectly sums up a complex, decades spanning saga into a nice, one hour package and gets a solid thumbs up from me.
