"The Hammer" goes over the rough WWF schedule.
WWE Hall Of Famer Greg "The Hammer" Valentine will be one of many wrestling legends who will be featured in the film '350 Days' which details the lives of former in-ring performers being out on the road and away from their families doing what they love. Performing multiple times per week and putting their bodies through that constant pain began to take a toll on the superstars which affects them to this day. The likes of Bret Hart and "Superstar" Billy Graham will also be featured in the film.
'350 Days' hits theaters on July 12th of this year and ahead of the film debuting, SportsKeeda had the opportunity to catch up with Greg Valentine and the producer of '350 Days' Evan Ginzburg, and during the interview Valentine was asked about the rugged WWF/E schedule that still to this day is referred to as hectic.
"Yeah, exactly what Evan [ Ginzburg/Producer of '350 Days'] said. The toll on bodies, being on the road... I go way back to the seventies when we didn't fly much. We drove and drove, instead of flying everywhere like we did in the eighties. It was all on the road and it's a lot of wrestling. I don't know if I did 350 days, but it was close. In the WWF, which is WWE now, we did 10 days straight, then we had 3 days off, then we went out for 4 more days straight, then we had 3 days off, then we did 10 days straight. If we went to Europe or Japan, it was like 2 weeks straight flying over there and flying back. A lot of road stuff, a lot of aeroplanes." Valentine said.
There are more snippets of the film available to watch on the '350 Days' YouTube channel.
