In 350 Days, pro wrestling legends Bret Hart, Superstar Billy Graham and dozens more peel back the curtain on the severe toll working on the road 350 days a year took on their bodies, families, marriages and psyches. This compelling documentary chronicles their struggles to survive the chaos of 1980's era wrestling. Living a rock and roll lifestyle, they faced nightly temptations, battled their vices, and were absentee parents and spouses while chasing dreams of fame and fortune. In their own words, with the cutting insight and sharp wit one would expect from such legendary icons, these gentle giants tell their harrowing (yet often darkly humorous) tales as marriages dissolve and relationships with their children are strained, sometimes permanently. Such is the life of the professional wrestler; such is life itself.

The film has heart, laughs but mostly some painful truths about how far many wrestlers went - diving into drugs, booze, sex, extra-marital affairs, whatever it took - to survive the dreary miles between their matches.
And once they hit their destinations, the fights inside the ring were often easier than those outside: the promoter power plays, face-offs against angry fans, and locker room ego battles against each other.
Sure, we’ve heard some of these stories before in static talking head wrestler interviews on YouTube. But don’t be mistaken. This is DIFFERENT. This is BIG. This is ALIVE.
In the days of Kayfabe, these wrestlers had to live double lives in order to put asses in arena seats so that they could feed their families. They wore their characters 350 days a year whenever in public (or face losing their jobs) and had just 15 scattered days to decompress and be themselves with their families. All too often, the lines between their “wrestling selves” and their “real selves” blurred with disastrous results.
You often get the feeling that some of these aging wrestlers decided to spill their guts here as they knew that this legit film may very well serve as their deathbed confessions.
I’ve never had more respect for these men and women than I do now and I’ve been a decades-long fan.
350 Days is an amazing viewing experience. Don’t miss it!
