Wrestling Stories from the Road: The Good, the Bad and the Bizarre!
You could imagine that the opportunity to travel from city to city around the world would be one of the most rewarding things a professional wrestler could do, but is it the easiest? Consider that for the few hours before your favorite superstar swaggers into the ring in your hometown, they are on the road after perhaps staying in not the cleanliest of hotel room hundreds of miles away. It is feasible that they are stuck on a flight jetting halfway across the world uncomfortably with their seat in an upright position. Or maybe they are crammed into a rental car with very little leg room, unable to find recovery after the bouts they had the night before.
These scenarios are all part of what happens to wrestlers when we are not watching them. While they get the priceless opportunity of performing at a high level in front of millions of fans, a job they only dreamed of as children and a job they love more than anything else, they are part of a job that keeps them on the road for more than 300 days a year. They get to see parts of the world they never dreamed they would visit, but they are separated from their families for incredible stretches of time with their “other” family, the men and women from the same business as them who join in on this same journey on the road.
It’s a job unlike any other.
Join in on this journey as many legends of the ring share their wrestling stories from the road. Some stories are good, some are bad and some are just plain bizarre!
