“Dark Side of the Ring” Season Two debut episode will be a two hour premiere featuring Chris Benoit. The documentary will air March 24th on VICE. However, VICE has released the first part of the premiere special on their YouTube page. You can view the first part below, along with full details regarding the documentary.
In 2007, Benoit, one of the biggest names in the sport, killed his wife, Nancy and seven year old son Daniel before hanging himself in a crime that shocked the world and sparked a conversation about mental health in sports that continues today. The documentary offers unprecedented access to Benoit’s inner circle of family and friends, who reveal their complicated feelings about the tragedy 13 years later including his son, David: “That definitely was not him. He’s still my hero,” and Sandra Toffoloni, Nancy Benoit’s sister: “I think I do, someday want to forgive him… it’s not today.”
