Executive Producer and AEW’s First World Heavyweight Champion, Chris Jericho Talks ‘The Death Tour‘s World Premiere at Slamdance on Friday, January 19, 2024 at 2 p.m.

All Elite Wrestling’s (AEW) first ever First World Heavyweight Champion and Executive Producer, Chris Jericho talks about his new documentary, ‘The Death Tour‘, about professional wrestling’s most dangerous road trip across Canada’s frozen tundra.

The Thrill Seeker (a nickname Jericho earned in the early 1990s) had partaken in the tour twice during the summer months, but not the more dangerous winter route, which is what ‘The Death Tour‘ focuses on.

We spoke to Jericho about the door, how professional wrestlers have been taking this route for over three decades and why they continue this dangerous journey in an attempt to make it in the wrestling business.

The Death Tour‘ shows on:

Fri, Jan 19th, 2:00 PM @ The Summer and David Theater @ The Yarrow Hotel
Mon, Jan 22nd, 12:45 PM @ The LUMIX Theater @ The Yarrow Hotel

Official Press Release:

The Death Tour‘ is a road trip movie like none other which takes viewers on an epic journey to a part of the world rarely captured on camera.  Executive Produced by wrestling legend Chris Jericho, audiences experience these remote communities through the wrestler’s eyes as they drive through the frozen tundra, sleep on ring mats after shows, and face their inner demons. Some hope that surviving the Death Tour will propel them to wrestling superstardom while others, their bodies battered and scarred, head North for one last chance to hear the roar of an adoring crowd.

About the Film: The Death Tour has been taking place since the 1970s and has helped launch the careers of many wrestling greats. We were lucky to film the 50th year of the tour for the documentary and to partner with wrestling legend Chris Jericho as Executive Producer.   Working with Chris Jericho allowed us to connect with some of the biggest names in wrestling and to film an AEW match featuring one of the film’s main subjects. While there are plenty of fun wrestling scenes in the documentary, the heart of the film rests with its main subjects and the Indigenous communities they visit. The documentary is an intimate story of trauma, redemption, and passion. It is sure to inspire everyone who has been tempted to risk it all to live their dreams. 

Tagline: Wrestling the past in a faraway place.

Logline: The Death Tour follows wrestling hopefuls across remote Indigenous communities in Canada’s far North on ‘the most grueling tour in indie wrestling’. This test of strength and grit will show how far some are willing to go to live their dreams.

Synopsis: Each winter, when the lakes freeze over, a motley gang of professional wrestlers leaves Winnipeg on a one-of-a-kind wrestling trip through remote Indigenous communities of Northern Manitoba. Wrestling insiders call it the ‘The Death Tour‘ – both for the physical hardships endured on the road and the emotional toll it takes on those who experience it. Famous for its star-studded alumni, the trip offers wrestlers a rare taste of fame and a chance to see if they have what it takes to make it in professional wrestling.  This deeply personal documentary travels through Canada’s frozen North and into the wrestlers’ minds as they battle the elements, each other, and the impacts of our colonial past.
