Dark Side of the Ringís second season continues this week with an episode focussed on Dr. D David Schultz and his run-in with reporter John Stossel. The Rock recently commented on the upcoming episode.

The Great One noted on Twitter that he has already seen a cut of the episode and recommends wrestling fans watch. He tweeted, ďThis man was one of my all time fav heels (bad guys) in pro wrestling and an influence on me when I first shook his hand in Hawaii when I was 12. Iíve seen an early cut of this episode and highly recommend you watch, if you have any squared circle DNA in your blood. #DrDĒ

Schultz and Stossel were involved in an altercation backstage at Madison Square Garden in 1984. Stossel stated that he believed pro-wrestling was fake and Schultz physically assaulted him in response.

The episode will air Tuesday night at 10 pm on Vice TV and on Crave in Canada.
