Colt Cabana is kind of a marketing genius. This isn’t exactly new information, but let’s specifically talk about The Wrestling Road Diaries.
I’ve been a touring musician for about 7 years now. Definitely not in any full time manner, but I’ve been on the road plenty. Mary and I watched The Road Diaries last summer, and it was an amazing experience. I don’t know how often the allusion is made, but independent professionally wrestling is so similar to being in a nobody-touring-band it’s scary. Each scene of them on the road could have seriously been any tour by a band ever.
I really hope more of these start to happen. I’ve never actually been too huge on tour documentaries for bands, but I know a lot of people are. This is something I really wish I could see more of. Heck, even WWE could get on this wagon. I know they love their official documentaries and stuff, but I really think if they just took three months of life on the road with a couple semi-big guys (it wouldn’t have to be anything crazy like Cena), they could tap into a market. Plus, I’m sure for a company like that it would be a really easy/cheap film to produce.
Anyway, yeah, if you haven’t already, check out The Wrestling Road Diaries, obviously. And start a band and go on tour.
