Dark Side of the Ring S03 Kicks Off with 2-Hour Brian Pillman Focus

Yesterday, Vice TV and Dark Side of the Ring creators Evan Husney and Jason Eisener unveiled the first official look at the docuseries' third season- set to hit screens next month. While not revealing the season's full line-up, we did learn that Nick Gage and "deathmatches," the "Collision In Korea," the Ultimate Warrior, Grizzly Smith, and Dynamite Kid will each be getting their own episode. As for some of the familiar faces showing up to offer their perspectives, we have Chris Jericho, Jake 'The Snake' Roberts, Jon Moxley, Eric Bischoff, Jim Cornette, David Arquette, the former wife of Ultimate Warrior, Shari Tyree, and more.  So who or what are the topics for this season? But on Friday, viewers learned that it would be a two-hour look at the life and times of Brian Pillman (or more precisely, Brian "F'n" Pillman) that would be kicking things off.
