OVW (Ohio Valley Wrestling) will feature an hour-long television special honoring wrestling great Jessie Godderz (aka “Mr. PEC-Tacular”) on the YTA Network on Friday, June 19 at 9 p.m. PT/12 a.m. ET. Godderz initially came to national attention on CBS summer staple “Big Brother,” segueing into a career in professional wrestling, yearly appearances on CBS daytime time “The Talk” as the “Summertime Santa,” and Amazon drama “Tainted Dreams” as Dylan Buckwald.
“I got my start in OVW and it’s some of my greatest memories,” said Godderz, who won the OVW tag team championship five times. “I’m honored that this historic company would celebrate my time on the roster in such a way.”
OVW is the longest running locally produced professional wrestling series airing in the United State. 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 Jessie’s greatest OVW matches and a new interview with him sharing his latest television projects.
