There are numerous people that became huge fans of the ‘Dark Side Of The Ring’ series by Vice Media, which would expose the ugly underbelly of pro wrestling and reveal a lot of unknown details about a particular wrestler or organization. Season 4 will release soon and will feature Tammy Sytch and Chris Candido’s tumultuous relationship. Now it appears Sytch and Candido were originally set to be part of Season 2 of the show.

While speaking with Sports Guys Talk Wrestling, Dark Side of the Ring producer Evan Husney revealed that he had initially planned to feature an episode on Chris Candido and Tammy Sytch in the show’s second season.

Husney expressed his long-standing desire to tell the harrowing and dark story of Chris Candido and Tammy Sytch. The couple’s journey into the wrestling business is depicted as a tragic tale of youth, innocence, and the transformative power of the industry.

The producer added that it was a story they had attempted to produce for quite some time. Obviously, the episode will delve deep into their lives and give more insight into the inner workings of the troubled couple.


“This story is one that we’ve been trying to make happen for a very long time. Going back to season two, we really want to do this story because it is a harrowing, dark story about a very young couple who got into this business. Chris was kind of born to be a wrestler in many ways, he was very passionate about wanting to be a wrestler at a very young age and was kind of destined to become a wrestler. When he met Tammy, kind of by chance, they met and were very close and she kind of got swept into the wrestling business, as you’ll see, it wasn’t her intention. She was a pre-med student at the time. It’s kind of this portrait of a very innocent, young, impressionable couple that gets swallowed up by the business.

How they come out on the other end is completely far removed from where they started and that innocence. That’s the most shocking thing about it; how they started and where they wound up with Chris passing at a very young age and Tammy now facing potential criminal charges that are going to have her, potentially, in jail for a very long time with the manslaughter situation. That’s kind of the most intense part of it, is that. One we’ve tried to get off the ground many times and now we’ve finally pulled the trigger for season four.“

Dark Side of the Ring season four will premiere on Tuesday, May 30 with the episode on Tammy Sytch and Chris Candido. Of course, the show’s future will not be affected by Vice filing for bankruptcy either. We’ll have to see how the episode will be received by fans and critics alike.
