In his daily online update yesterday, Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter noted that “after all the controversy” last week from the edition of VICE TV’s Dark Side of the Ring After Dark panel discussion show, following the first broadcast by the main Dark Side of the Ring documentary series of the episode on the Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka-Nancy Argentino murder case, tonight’s TV listings don’t show the customary new After Dark following the next DSOTR episode.

So there is speculation that After Dark might be kaput. Listings do, however, show a rebroadcast of last week’s After Dark. “All the controversy” there, of course, involved the censorship of almost everything I had said in what was supposed to be a “live to tape” interview.Next, Concussion Inc. will be reprinting the piece I wrote about the After Dark outrage, first published April 15 at SLAM! Wrestling.
