Al Snow Understands Wrestlers Pain

In his weekly advice column, Inside Al's Head, former WWE talent Al Snow discussed the idea that some talent, specifically Neville and Nia Jax are unhappy with the nonstop grind of working there. He posted, ďEverybody cites the travel as the biggest stress when youíre working for WWE. Without a question or a doubt, itís hard. You give up a lot of your personal life because youíre on the road, and itís certainly not easy, but thatís not the real issue.Ē The grind creates a lot of physical and emotional stresses: ďLetís say youíre on the road for five days, but you get to go home for a day-and-a-half but youíve got to go right back out for another four-and-a-half days. Then youíll be home for a day-and-a-half. Then youíll be gone for seven days. Then youíll be home for four days, and then youíve got to go back out. You wake up early in the morning, because after 9/11, you have to catch every flight as early as possible in the event you miss that one or itís delayed.Ē Once you get off the plane you have to find something to eat, check in, work out, drive to the arena, wait around then do a 15 minute match then go back to the hotel and try to find food before you crash. So you go to bed, check out of the hotel and start the process all over again. And if you are a star then the pressure of staying at that level creates even more pressure because someone is always ready to take your spot. Snow doesnít regret anything he has ever done during his career but he wants fans to understand how hard the business can be on someone.
