Dark Side of the Ring Season 3 E13 Preview: New Jack Talks XPW "Perk"

Earlier this week, we shared the promo for this week's chapter of Evan Husney & Jason Eisener's pro-wrestling docuseries Dark Side of the Ring, as the spotlight makes a major shift towards an even darker side of modern wrestling history. In "Extreme & Obscene: Rob Black's XPW," promoter Rob Black attempts to merge his passions for hardcore pornography and deathmatch wrestling with XPW would eventually implode after a series of bad business & personal decisions that saw Black waging a war with the feds- and losing. Now, viewers get to hear from the late New Jack, whose perspective on the company actually connects back to S02E03 "The Life and Crimes of New Jack" because XPW is where he got his "revenge" by tasering and throwing Vic Grimes from a 40ft scaffolding.
