Dark Side of the Ring was a breath of fresh air when it hit the television screens in April 19. It introduced many casual viewers to some of the most controversial and notorious incidents in pro wrestling history.

It was previously reported that Vice has not picked up the docu-series for a fourth season. Season 3 of Dark Side of the Ring capped off with an episode on WWE’s high-profile steroid trials from the nineties.

It is is unknown if the show will ever be picked up for a new season, especially in the wake of the polarizing reaction the last season got from viewers. Whatever the case may be, there are people who want to see another season and Missy Hyatt is one of them.

The former WWE star recently took to Twitter to share an interesting pitch for Dark Side of the Ring showrunners. Missy proposed for the creators to do an episode on the closure of the United States Wrestling Association.

How about for @DarkSideOfRing Jerry Lawler selling uswa and convinced the buyer that is was worth millions. even had vince McMahon vouch for lawler. Within weeks, the new owner was making pennies. he tried suing lawler & the judge told jerry to settle. But jerry got a not guilty.

Longtime wrestling fans might me familiar with the origins of the USWA and for being the home of WWE Hall of Famer Jerry Lawler, who won countless championships during his time with the promotion.
