Vice has posted a new trailer for the 2-hour episode of “Dark Side of the Ring” that covers Chris Benoit’s murder-suicide involving his wife Nancy Benoit and son Daniel.
The documentary will include interviews from people that have never or rarely spoken on camera about what happened in 2007. Among those interviewed are Chris’s son David, Nancy’s sister Sandra Toffoloni, Chris Jericho, Vickie Guerrero, Chavo Guerrero Jr. and Dean Malenko.
Jericho said this is documentary is not about glorifying a murderer. “We’re not glorifying a murderer,” Jericho told SI.com. “We’re telling the full story. It was done properly, it was done for the right reasons, and we were able to portray the full story, emphasizing the tragedy that much further.”
He added, “There was a huge connection between Chris’ life and Eddie Guerrero’s life, and his death, so half the story is the story of Eddie and the other half is of Chris.”
Chavo Guerrero Jr. helped to produce the documentary and Jericho says he is the reason why he agreed to participate in it.
Jericho said, “Suddenly it became this noble project instead of a hack job, which is what the media tends to do in situations with someone they don’t know. We knew the person behind this, not just the murderer.”
The 2-part special on Benoit airs next Tuesday at 9 pm eastern on VICE TV. You can check out the new trailer by clicking below.
