Welcome to episode 5 of “Not About Dark Side of the Ring” – a humorous weekly review & recap of “Dark Side of the Ring” on Vice.
This week, Chris, Don and Steph try to make sense of the horrific family dynamic of the Smith family, led by patriarch and all-around awful human, Grizzly Smith.
Even though Grizzly passed away over ten years ago, his memory still haunts his children – WWE Hall of Famer Jake Roberts, Sam Houston, and former WWE Women’s Champion Rockin’ Robin. The kids talk about dad’s constant mind games, manipulation, and constant incest of family members and random kids he picked up in his travels.
The episode dives into the tragic story of the siblings’ half-sister, Jo Lynn, who was abducted in 1979 and never seen again.
In this recap, the gang talks about the demented family dynamic, wonders how Grizzly was able to convince so many families to let him take their daughters on cross-country travels, wishes more airtime was given to the chief of police of Tatum, Texas, and discusses how the family still not talking today.
