Pro wrestling fans can’t get enough of Dark Side of the Ring’s amazing storytelling. They are able to capture moments in pro wrestling that are not really known. Now, it seems we have more information about the future of the show after Vice’s bankruptcy.
Following the news of VICE Media filing for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy on May 15th, Evan Husney, the co-creator of Dark Side of the Ring, has shared his thoughts on the show’s future. VICE Media announced that the bankruptcy process would likely lead to the sale of the company, while ensuring its continued operation during the proceedings.
Despite these developments, Evan Husney has reassured fans that nothing has changed for Dark Side of the Ring and that the show’s well-being remains intact. In fact, the first episode of Season 4 aired on May 30, showcasing the ongoing commitment to the series.
During a recent interview with Comicbook, Evan Husney provided an update on the situation, emphasizing that it’s “business as usual” for the Dark Side of the Ring team. Despite the uncertainty surrounding VICE’s future, the crew remains dedicated to delivering captivating episodes and maintaining the show’s standard of excellence.
“No (this isn’t the end). We definitely want to keep the show going. We love making the show and we love telling these stories.
“With Tales from the Territories, we had such a fun time just rediscovering our love for the territory era, that Kayfabe era.
“We just loved that so much. And I think that’s carried over into Dark Side (Season) Four. There’s a lot of territory era stories, Magnum TA, Junkyard Dog, Adrian Adonis. You got all those. So that definitely inspired that. So we’re exploring that and there’s more to explore.”
“I think, what you’re reading about Vice right now, I think the good news is … Obviously, I’m not an official … someone who can comment on behalf of the company or anything, but from what’s been explained to me, it’s business as usual.”
“Vice TV, the TV channel, the entity, that’s a separate entity from Vice Media. So we’re good to go and we want to keep going and we have plans to.”
Dark Side of the Ring continued this week with a new season. They kicked off with a bang, and that is only the beginning. Only time will tell how things play out in the months to come.
Many fans would love to see many more seasons of Dark Side of the Ring. Hopefully, they can continue after Vice media goes through that really sad time of bankruptcy.
