Jessie Godderz Won’t Rule Out Jump To WWE Or AEW – Exclusive

My full interview with “Mr. Pectacular” Jessie Godderz will be released this Friday at 7 a.m. EST on the Haus of Wrestling YouTube channel and podcast feed.

From 2011 until 2017, Jessie Godderz was one of the focal points of Total Nonstop Action, which eventually became Impact Wrestling. During his time with the company, he worked with notable talents like Tara, Bully Ray, and his BroMen, Robbie E, and DJZ, now known as Mr. Stone and Joaquin Wilde, respectively, in WWE. Following his departure from Impact, Godderz kept his presence alive with his continued appearances on CBS’ Big Brother before joining his next major promotion, Ohio Valley Wrestling, in 2019.

OVW is currently co-owned by former WWE and Impact star Al Snow and is the subject of a new docuseries on Netflix called Wrestlers. One of the themes of the series is that OVW is used as a launching pad to help talent get hired by WWE or AEW. In a Haus of Wrestling exclusive interview, I asked Godderz if he is also looking to use OVW as a stepping stone to one of those two major promotions.

“I think by me helping OVW get to this level and kind of just leveling up and just having the notoriety speaks volumes for myself of what’s actually possible,” he began. “There had to be characters that actually helped, that were appealing enough, to have that first initial interest to even kind of float some sort of project like this. So, for myself to kind of not necessarily leave, it would have to be a very tantalizing apple that needs to kind of see the same vision of what Al did.

“The reason that I came to OVW is because of Al and what he had for a vision for myself. Wrestling, professional wrestling is storytelling, and if the writers aren’t writing for you, there’s a there’s a lot of professional wrestlers that are great wrestlers that are all just sitting at home. So, OVW has treated me right, Al’s treating me outstanding, and that’s just a conversation that we’re going to have.

“I would love to obviously keep providing for my family and professional wrestling, too, though. So, I’m not going to rule out anything, but I just definitely love the fact that wherever OVW was before I got there a couple of years ago to where it is now, and where it’s going to be literally tonight at two o’clock Central, 8 am on September 13, it’s going to be completely different.”

The full first season of Wrestlers is now available to stream on Netflix.
