The two Superstars were a married couple during their WWE run in the 80's. Savage left WWE in the early 90's and never came back. He passed away in a car accident in 2011, and was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2015. Miss Elizabeth died of acute toxicity in 2003.

WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan didn't seem too thrilled by the episode and went on to criticise it on Twitter.

The heart of the matter

What's next?

Dark Side of the Ring airs every Wednesday at 9 p.m. EST on Vice. With the series being highly recommended by The Great One himself, wrestling fans ought to check it out.
