Jessie Godderz, who is affectionately known as “Mr. PEC-Tacular,” has announced that he will star in new series “Wrestlers” on Netflix. #Powerjouranlist Markos Papadatos has the scoop.

“I’m thrilled to announce I’m starring in a major series on the one and only Netflix. It’s called ‘Wrestlers’ and it debuts on September 13,” Godderz exclaimed in a social media post.

This docuseries deals with the professional wrestling promotion Ohio Valley Wrestling. According to Variety, the series hails from director and executive producer Greg Whiteley, who previously created such hit Netflix docuseries as “Cheer” and “Last Chance U.”

Ohio Valley Wrestling is based in Louisville, Kentucky. Initially, it was an independent promotion and then it subsequently became a developmental territory for the WWE. Presently, it is back to being independent. Alums of Ohio Valley Wrestling include Brock Lesnar, John Cena, Randy Orton, The Miz, Dave Bautista, and CM Punk.

The synopsis is: Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW) in Louisville, Kentucky was once a proud finishing school for young wrestlers who hoped for a chance at a career in big time Pro Wrestling but times have changed. With new owners in the picture, once-famous pro wrestler Al Snow has been given the summer to turn OVW’s dire financial situation around. Wrestlers tells the story of a handful of eccentric misfits who attempt to come together to help Al save this historic gym while achieving their own wild dreams of wrestling professionally.
