Season 2 of “Dark Side of the Ring” on Viceland has wrapped up but the strong ratings suggest that we are likely to see a third season. The producers are looking for more stories to covers Disco Inferno has already made his pitch for them to cover Hardbody Harrison.
“We submitted Hardbody Harrison, who was a WCW enhancement talent. He made a lot of money suing WCW for racial discrimination which is ridiculous. He then, in turn, took that money, bought a nice house, and opened up a sex trafficking operation where he would get the girls, trained them to be professional wrestlers while trafficking them for prostitution. He ended up getting caught. He ended up defending himself in court. He ended up losing and ended up getting life in jail.”
Konnan said, “I think it would be interesting to see Scott Hall, Teddy Hart, Vince McMahon, Luger and Elizabeth, Macho.”
Harrison was convicted and sentenced to live in prison in 2007 for keeping eight women in as sex slves in two homes in Cartersville, Georgia. Witnesses said that Harrison forced the women to have sex orgies and the women allegedly were forced to engave in sex with up to eight men at a single party.
The Dark Side of the Ring episodes on Chris Benoit and Owen Hart were the two highest-rated TV shows in the history of Viceland. An episode on Hardbody Harrison might not reach those numbers but his story is interesting enough that it would draw in some curious fans, especially anyone who remembers Harrison’s squash matches from the late 90s in WCW.
This week’s “Keeping It 100” has Zack Ryder/Matt Cardona on as the guest and he talks about his WWE run, including the time he thought he would be in a feud with John Cena. Also, Konnan talks about the time he was told that he was going to wrestle Hulk Hogan in WCW>
