Although you couldn't do a whole episode on it, the Mass Transit situation comes to mind.

Did you not watch the New Jack episode?

I can’t think of too many they could do for a third series.

Chyna.

Edit - Maybe that qualifies simply as the dark side of fame, rather than specific to pro-wrestling. Nonetheless, her rise and fall is quite the story with plenty of fucked up material.

The Japanese Dojo system would indeed be interesting.

It would certainly have to address the bigger Ashley Massaro story as well, but i'm also going to suggest the Diva search in general.

Didn’t Kensuke Sasaki kill one of the trainees in the dojo? Read that a few times but there’s never much detail about what happened. I know Scott Norton talked a little bit about it in a shoot interview but didn’t say much. I guess the guys who did know more weren’t going to say anything and risk burning their bridge with New Japan.

XPW screams out as one they should do. Involves a helluva lot.

Sunny must be one they will look at, but fuck me 10 seconds of her is annoying as shit

XPW is a surprisingly good shout, when I think about it. A wrestling company whose business model was to legitimise and increase sales of extreme porn is pretty fucking dark. I'm sure at least one wrestler has said that they offered to pay him with sex instead of cash as well. Then there's the whole Messiah incident, the ECW fight, the bizarre attempt to move to Philadelphia and the prison time.

I actually hope that they leave Sunny alone. It feels a bit cruel to do a documentary about how she USED to be one of the most beautiful women in the world and how shitty her life is now. She'd take part as well, which is even sadder.

The Chris Candido/Sunny story maybe could be one they could do with her fall from grace and his untimely death while working for TNA.

So they have said that Vice and the producer both want a season 3. It's just waiting on the pandemic being over to look at practicality due to travel for filming.

Would Punk's WWE exit and the sundry that came with it fill an episode? I know other circumstances would be a stumbling block .

'So Tammy, you did a porn video...'
'No, I did a celebrity sex tape.'

Some of the suggestions here are veering way too far in the general wrestling documentary direction.  The Montreal Screwjob suffered from that too but at least you had Bret as the tragic figure in the midst of it.  What exactly is "dark" about CM Punk leaving WWE or the curtain call incident?

Pillman, Dynamite and XPW are three great shouts that would have plenty of material to work with.

The Plane Ride from hell could be an interesting one... at the very least, tie it into some of the awful shit wrestlers have got up to on the road.

Marty Jannetty comes to mind off the back of that actually. Just... eesh.

Kamala could be an interesting one - use it to talk about attitudes to race in wrestling, but then also his health issues.
