I am proud and excited to continue telling these courageous stories in season two."

"As lifelong fans, we have always been fascinated by the behind-the-scenes, human stories of the world of professional wrestling,” Dark Side of the Ring executive producers Evan Husney and Jason Eisener said. “For our second season we're going even deeper into its secretive past. Many wrestlers and family members we interviewed have never spoken out before. Our series seeks to help bring closure to their stories."
