The synopsis for the show reads as the following:

“The territory days were the time before wrestling expanded nationally, when different areas across the US and Canada, aka “Territories,” were areas dominated by unscrupulous bookers, rabid fans who fervently believed in their favorite characters and fearless wrestlers who blurred the lines between fiction and reality both inside and outside the ring.”

Several legends from this time period will be featured on the show that will have re-enactments similar to “Dark Side of the Ring.” Bret Hart was among the wrestlers seen in the trailer for the inaugural season, as seen below:

The third season of “Dark Side of the Ring” aired in 2021 and is Vice TV’s most-watched series of all time. It was such a success that it spaned off series such as “Dark Side of Football” and “Dark Side of the 90s.”
