With a new episode of VICE TV's Dark Side of the Ring: Confidential set for this week with host Conrad Thompson and executive producers Evan Husney and Jason Eisener and a third season of the popular docuseries waiting in the Gorilla position for next month, there's an important time change for viewers to keep in mind. Starting this week and continuing with Dark Side of the Ring Season 3, the show will be moving to Thursdays (starting with this Thursday's 9:30 pm ET edition of Confidential). Speaking of which, this week's focus returns to "The Last Ride of the Road Warriors"- an examination of the life and times of one of the greatest tag teams: Road Warrior Animal (Joe Laurinaitis), Road Warrior Hawk (Michael Hegstrand), and manager Paul Ellering.
Here's a look at the trailer for this week's episode- and don't forget what's still ahead for the remainder of the season: April 20: "The Final Days of Owen Hart"; and April 27: "Cocaine & Cowboy Boots: The Herb Abrams Story."
CONFIDENTIAL is moving to Thursday nights to lead into Season 3's premiere on May 6.
