Big Brother alumni Mr. PEC-Tacular returns to his professional wrestling roots for OVW TV special
LOUISVILLE – This week OVW television will spotlight one of its hottest alumni in Mr. PEC-Tacular Jesse Godderz with an hour-long television special broadcast nationally on the YTA Network.
Godderz is best known for appearances on the hit CBS reality series Big Brother in addition to his starring role as Dylan Buckwald on the Emmy nominated Amazon Prime series Tainted Dreams. He’s also featured each year as the Summertime Santa on the CBS Daytime show The Talk. Mr. PEC-Tacular is the epitome of a star in both sports and entertainment as both an actor and globally recognized professional wrestler.
“I got my start in OVW and it’s some of my greatest memories,” Godderz said. “I’m honored that this historic company would celebrate my time on the roster in such a way.”
OVW (Ohio Valley Wrestling) is considered “the Harvard of professional wrestling” as many of its former stars including Godderz and others like John Cena and Dave Bautista went on to worldwide fame. Mr. PEC-Tacular cut his teeth in the OVW ring from 2011-2013. He won the OVW tag team championship five times and is also a former television champion.
“Our alumni represent a who’s who of professional wrestling and entertainment,” OVW owner and Gladiator Sports Network CEO Al Snow said. “We were there to guide and train them from the start and we hope fans will enjoy this look back on Jesse’s career.”
OVW is the longest running locally produced professional wrestling series airing in the United State. In 2020 the company will produce its 1100 episode. COVID-19 shut downs prompted OVW to tap into its 25 year library of footage with television specials as government restrictions on combat sports have not allowed professional wrestling events to resume in Kentucky where the company is based.
The Mr. PEC-Tacular television special will feature some of Jesse’s greatest OVW matches and a new interview with him sharing some of his latest television projects.
OVW TV airs nationally on the YTA Network Friday nights at 9pmPST/12amEST. The episode featuring Mr. Pec-Tacular will air on Friday June 19th, 2020.
