Ted DiBiase Reflects On How Brutal The WWE Travel Schedule Was In The 80s

WWE Hall of Famer “The Million Dollar Man” Ted DiBiase recently took to an episode of his “Everybody’s Got a Pod” podcast, where he talked about a number of topics including the brutal WWE travel schedule in the 80s.

DiBiase said, “I mean, you know when I started, some of the guys told me, they said, Ted, they said, the first couple of years when he was just trying, he, it was even worse. And I said worse. Yeah, it was worse. I mean, I mean, they would be on the road sometimes for, I mean, like, weeks on end, you know, like, I mean, can you imagine going on the road and not getting home for two months? Oh, my gosh, but by the time I got there, they had started to whittle it down, and they it back then when I first started, it was three weeks on the road, and a week off. So it was 21 days. 21 cities. That’s brutal. Yes. Oh, I mean, you know, I would wake up at the Hotel sometimes and lay there a minute ago. Where the hell am I? And I would actually roll over on the, in the hotel rooms, there’s a nameplate on the phone, and it’s got the name of the hotel and the phone number. And I would have sometimes I roll over and go, ‘Oh, okay, I’m in Chicago.’”
