The second episode of season 4 of “Dark Side of the Ring” premieres on 6/6 and will showcase Magnum TA, a man seemed destined to be one of the top stars in professional wrestling history before a car cash ended his career.
Magnum had very specific features that Ronnie has, so the similarity in looks is definitely there. Magnum who at one time was rumored to be the guy that was going to take the ‘Big Gold’ from Ric Flair has always been the guy that fans think to themselves “what if?”
“I’m Magnum TA in the Magnum TA episode. They kept telling me, as they were filming, ‘Hey, normally when we shoot these shots, they are super blurred out, but you look so much like Magnum TA that we keep turning down the blur.’ Every shot they would shoot, they turned the blur, at least that’s what they said, I don’t know what it’s going to look like once it’s produced. They told me that I was one of the top three gets that they’ve ever gotten as far as a person who looked like the character they were portraying,”Ronnie told Jeremy Lambert & Joel Pearl on In The Weeds.
Ronnie went on to discuss how when shooting he would come up with ideas and it was always who had the best idea wins on the set.
He continued, “When I was filming Dark Side of the Ring, I kept having ideas and I would be like, ‘What if we did this? What if we did that?’ They were all really cool. They were like, ‘This is the type of shoot where, whoever has the best idea wins.’ I was scared that I was going to be stepping on someone’s shoes. Once they told me that, I was shooting ideas left and right. I had a lot of fun acting, a lot of fun acting. I felt I did a pretty good job at it, so definitely check it out. Check out the whole season. I really enjoyed that and I hope I can do more of that, whether it be Dark Side of the Ring or something else. I have another company talking to me about an eating show and stuff. There is stuff out there for me in the acting world, I just have to figure out how to navigate that.”Megabyte Ronnie
