Jessie Godderz Talks Working With 98° Singer Jeff Timmons, Acting & Future Plans In Pro Wrestling

Sports Illustrated’s Justin Barrasso shared an interview with former IMPACT & Lucha Underground star, “Mr. PEC-Tacular” Jessie Godderz and 98° member Jeff Timmons, who both have been getting buzz over their music video titled “The Girl is with Me” Below are some quotes from the interview:

Jeff Timmons on working with Jessie Godderz:

“I don’t watch a lot of TV, and my children monopolize all of the media at our house, so I wasn’t familiar with Jesse’s work,” said Timmons, who is back on tour with 98 Degrees this November. “But I saw how prolific he was on social media. I thought, ‘Why don’t we make a song?’ I thought this was an opportunity to grow our fan bases and have fun, but when we got in the studio, I was pleasantly surprised. In addition to his charming personality and his incredible look, he’s also a multi-talented guy. It’s turned out to be a well-received song, as we’re finding out.”

Godderz on being offered to do “The Girl is with Me”:

“Until you try, you don’t know what’s out there,” said Godderz. “Jeff helped ten-fold so I could come out with a better sound. All these years of experience were at my fingerprints, and the opportunity was a blessing. I put my heart into it, and even though this isn’t my forte, if you give me the ball, I’ll try to run with it as far as I can.”

Godderz on his future plans in pro wrestling:

“I hope to be a world champ for a major promotion,” said Godderz. “I plan on coming back. Wrestling is something I’ve been doing since 2009.”

“I’ve sacrificed my body and a lot of relationships, and it’s part of my life. My sights are on becoming a world champion for a promotion, and that is my dream.”
