Re: Viceland's 'Dark Side of the Ring' - 6-part series

Owen's episode further cements Martha and his family is (rightfully so) never going to allow Vince to put him in the HOF/profit off him ever again. While it was tragic what happened to him, it was refreshing that they chronicled someone who wasn't a total POS, that loved their family and the business

Martha's evidence about the clip holding Owen was really the only new information in this story, but yeah, most subjects have been about murder, drugs or some illegal activity.

The only other one I can think to compare it to is the Von Erichs. Not that they weren't dealing with drugs, but when you base the entire story around Kevin, you feel terribly for what he's experienced.

Yeah, I didn't know about the clip, but that seems incredibly bad. I mean, I know everyone hates Vince McMahon, but pretty much every new thing I learn from this Vice documentary just makes him worse and worse.

Seeing Jim Cornette get emotional and shed tears during the Owen episode was pretty jarring.

I'm at a point where I feel it's unlikely I learn anything new about the Owen tragedy, since I've ingested every account I've ever come across, but I'll still keep watching any new material that gets released.

Ever since seeing the clip of him saying it in a shoot interview, I will forever associate Honky Tonk Man with being the ******* who said, "Hey, I liked Owen, but the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few, and of course the show should have gone on. If someone dies in a car accident, they don't shut down the highway for any longer than it takes to clear the scene."
