Vice to debut wrestling documentary series October 19th

Post by Bandit » Mon Jun 25, 2018 10:51 pm

Meltzer said last night Vice is making a new wrestling documentary series like 30 for 30 all about wrestling. He will be heavily featured on it as the wrestling expert. The first season will have 10 shows and debut October 19th with the first episode on Gino Hernandez. Dave said it will have a big revelation but didn't go into details. So he may mean finally revealing Paul Boesch was his biological father or possibly finding truth to the rumors he was actually murdered. So it sounds awesome.

Other episodes will be on Bruiser Brody, early days of women's wrestling (ie the Moolah scandal), the Von Erichs, and more.

Sounds good.

Hopefully it airs on SBS Viceland here in Australia not long after October 19th.

He said Vice so it wasn't clear if he meant the website or youtube upload (like that CZW show they did never aired on television) or the Viceland network.

If they meant Viceland I guess Dave will be smoking weed during his interviews, since they have a rule Marijuana must be shown or mentioned every 5 minutes.

On the few occasions I've turned it to Viceland, they either have a show on about dope, white rappers eating stuff or gay people travelling/doing things.

Maybe they'll change up the formula and have gay guys smoking weed.

Or have Gay white rappers smoking weed and doing dope whilst travelling.

But yea those docs sound interesting. Gino's story will be interesting. Gary Hart seemed really broke up about his passing. I think it could have been something else but didn't he OD. The early years for Woman's wrestling could make WWE look real bad for how they kept with Moolah all those years. But they knew how she got down so its on them.

Gary was broken up because he thought of him like a little brother he needed to protect because he saw the way his life was headed and no one but him was trying to do anything to save him. He didn't think he was murdered. Kevin Von Erich is the only one I've heard say he believes he was definitely murdered. It's true that he owed the mob money on gambling and cocaine. But if they were going to kill him, giving a huge cocaine addict with a high drug tolerance enough cocaine to kill them would be very expensive. They could just shoot him and dump him in a landfill like they usually do when they murder for a lot cheaper.

I guess it's possible since he was high profile they could have wanted to do this because they thought maybe the cops would investigate harder than the average guy caught up with the mob who goes "missing". But it's more likely he just did too much cocaine and had a heart attack on his own.

Yea I remember Gary Hart saying that now on the WCCW doc. If they found Gino with like a gunshot wound (to make it look like a "suicide" type scenario) then yea I'd think it was a mob hit, definitely. Unless he was ripping them off and they told him to do all the blow in front of them. He was found with a considerable amount of cocaine in his stomach, so that could be a likely scenario. So they made it look like a OD but it was intentional on their part.

Found this with Jake talking about Gino

From the new Observer
The Vice documentary on Bruiser Brody debuted over the weekend in Chicago. Unfortunately I had an interview scheduled for an undisclosed HBO Canada documentary and missed it. There will be six documentaries airing in early 2019 on Vice, Brody, Gino Hernandez, The Montreal Screw Job, The Von Erichs, Moolah and Chris Benoit I believe. The Hernandez piece will probably be amazing. People were raving to me about the Brody doc and hopefully I’ll get to see it soon
The Canada one might be about the Harts, which if done like the Andre one would be great but sadder.

Hopefully we'll get them here too as we have Vice. But Montreal they could have replaced with another topic since that's been covered ad nauseam.
