WWE Hall Of Famer Jimmy Hart made a name for himself as one of the best managers in the history of the world of professional wrestling, as he helped elevate whoever he worked with. That said, it appears he rejected a ‘Dark Side Of The Ring’ appearance featuring Brutus Beefcake.

While speaking on the Two Man Power Trip of Wrestling podcast, Jimmy Hart revealed his decision to decline an offer to participate in an episode of “Dark Side of the Ring,” focusing on the life and career of Brutus Beefcake.

The WWE Hall Of Famer shared his perspective on the current media landscape, where there is a major demand for stories full of drama and controversy. He acknowledged that in the present era, people are often drawn to stories that delve into the darker aspects of individuals’ lives and experiences.

However, Hart’s decision to decline the opportunity to participate in the “Dark Side of the Ring” episode centered around Beefcake made it clear he wanted to have a more positive outlook on Beefcake.


“In this day and age, especially since people want the drama and want to hear the bad things, I turned down a show. They had Brutus Beefcake. They were doing a Dark Side of the Ring on him. They came to me about doing Dark Side of the Ring. I said, ‘Look, I’ll do Happy Side of the Ring, but not Dark Side of the Ring.’ We worked so hard to get a WWE Hall of Fame ring. When we got on stage, they had great videos of us and they inducted us in a class with all the people that we were with back in the day. Then we have our peers in the audience and so many fans see us and they do so well to put us over. Why would I want to tear it down?’

Jimmy Hart also recently expressed his interest in wanting to manage Pretty Deadly. Regardless, many fans feel Hart made the right decision by not taking part in the ‘Dark Side Of The Ring’ episode.
