Legends include Bret “Hitman” Hart, “Superstar” Billy Graham, “Million Dollar Man” Ted Dibiase, Greg “The Hammer” Valentine, JJ Dillon, Lanny Poffo and more
Hollywood, Calif. — Feb. 27, 2019 — 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.
Set for release April 2, 2019, “350 Days” is now available for pre-order on iTunes (https://apple.co/2IkUzLn), as well as on BluRay and DVD at Walmart.com, Amazon.com, and other online retail sites. Release dates for additional streaming platforms will be announced soon.
This compelling documentary chronicles their struggles to survive the chaos of 1980s 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 including Bret “Hitman” Hart, “Superstar” Billy Graham, “Million Dollar Man” Ted Dibiase, Greg “The Hammer” Valentine, JJ Dillon, Tito Santana, Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka, George “The Animal” Steele, Abdullah The Butcher, Wendi Richter, Lex Luger, Paul “Mr. Wonderful” Orndorff, Marty Jannetty, Lanny Poffo, “The Masked Superstar” Bill Eadie and Ox Baker, 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 movie was amazing, truthful and raw & filled with the real life behind the scene road stories. I’m very thankful that this movie showed the downside, the sacrifice & the strength of these legends, now icons.
–Patricia Summerland-Sunny the California Girl – GLOW
After watching the “350 Days’ documentary, I realized from a wrestler’s point of view, that what I did in GLOW and as much of an impact GLOW had on women’s wrestling today, doesn’t even scratch the surface of what these true legends went through and what they had to give up. It’s sad how many of the Wrestlers that were featured in the movie have passed away. This documentary should and will go down in history.
350 Days’ abundance of rare archival footage/photos and brutally-candid first-person stories from some of the greatest legends in the business make it essential viewing for anyone with an interest in the history and inner workings of professional wrestling.
Paul Lazenby-Former Pro Wrestler
“350 Days” was the most accurate account of what Pro Wrestling was like, back in the day. The road trips, locker rooms and personalities were exactly ‘right on. It was a captivating story and got my full attention.
Ric Drasin-Former Pro Wrestler
If you are a fan of professional wrestling, or of Darren Aronofsky’s “The Wrestler” (2008), or simply like films that depict the tenacity and resilience of the human spirit, you might like Fulvio Cecere’s documentary “350 Days.”
–Boston Globe-Peter Keough
If you know the difference between a heel, a babyface, a hoss and a jobber, then you probably won’t want to miss a minute of “350 Days.”
350 seconds defines a typical old school squash match. 350 minutes denotes the time it took on a road trip to get to and from the arena. 350 hours is the time I plan on watching this in the future. So I give 350 Days 350 stars, in deep appreciation of the likely 350 weeks that it took to put together. “Supermouth” Dave Drason-SLAM! Wrestling
What happens when the cheering ends? When the men and women of the squared circle are recovering from the bumps and bruises in the wrestling ring? A new documentary gives viewers direct access to lives of these wrestlers on the road from the 1980s, which was much harder than even die-hard fans could imagine.
–SLAM! Sports-Alexandra Robertson
While this movie may be best for hardcore fans, even casual fans of the sport will know the stars included in the movie. And even people who aren’t wrestling enthusiasts will probably find the life of a professional wrestler to be fascinating. And it’s not just the stars. Every pro wrestler has a story to tell, and this movie features some of the all-time greats telling their story.
–Northeast Times-Joe Mason
A fantastic film that reveals the realities of being a pro wrestler on the road for up to 350 days a year. Legends of the business share stories of the physical toll to the excess, sex, drugs, and rock n roll coupled with the effect this had on their families, you’ll be captivated from the get-go and be left talking about it for days. – JP Zarka, ProWrestlingStories.com
