CALGARY — Many of them are now broken men — both physically and financially — but in the 1980s they were like rock stars, lured by a lifestyle of big money, fast women, drugs and steroids.

A new documentary entitled “350 Days” explores their lives and what is described as the “golden era” of professional wrestling.
