Dark Side S03 Preview: Mr. Perfect, Brock & Shaving Cream Raise "Hell"

With only hours to go until Evan Husney & Jason Eisener's pro-wrestling docuseries Dark Side of the Ring returns to Vice TV for the second half of its third season (with narrator & pro-wrestling icon Chris Jericho), viewers are getting a preview of tonight's spotlight, "The Plane Ride From Hell," the infamous party aboard a private 757 charter plane that forced the WWE to reprimand some of its biggest stars. In the following clip, Tommy Dreamer, Rob Van Dam, Jim Ross, and more explain how a shaving cream prank pulled by "Mr. Perfect" Curt Hennig on Brock Lesnar led to a "play fight" (depending on who you speak to) that got a little too close to the plane's emergency exit.
