We've finally made it to the Chris Benoit story. It's the most fascinating and horrifying tale in pro wrestling history, one so shocking and tragic that Vice's Dark Side of the Ring gave it a two-part episode. They brought out the big guns here: Chris Jericho, Dean Malenko, Chavo and Vickie Guerrero, even Benoit's son David. Does the episode redeem Dark Side's shaky reputation in our eyes? Do they capture the twists and turns that make Benoit's atrocious saga so unique? Join us and find out.
