Last month, Netflix was invaded by pro wrestling fans when it rolled out its latest docuseries, Wrestlers. The show follows Al Snow, his business partners, and wrestlers at OVW as they try to keep the fledgling Kentucky promotion afloat. One of the series’ breakout stars is “Hollyhood” Haley J, a rowdy and ambitious young talent. Beyond the confines of OVW, J has worked for WOW and was recently scheduled for a tryout with WWE.
Unfortunately, due to issues with her medical paperwork, J was pulled from that tryout. On Ringside Podcast, J confirmed that her tryout with the sports entertainment juggernaut is on hold and noted, “It’s all over the internet!”
It does appear that there was no ill-will between the two sides, and the door is open for her to get another tryout down the road. One of the big names she teased wanting to work with is Charlotte Flair, but the depth of WWE’s female division and the opportunities it provides are deep.
“The ultimate wrestling goal is obviously WWE,” she said. “I’m trying to wrestle at WrestleMania, man. Become champ, top dog. I feel like anywhere I go, I make my way to the top, so I just got to get there, but that’s the goal: Be champ and wrestle and WrestleMania. Then I can retire.”
Season one of Wrestlers is now available to stream on Netflix. There is no word yet on whether the series will get a season two. Fans of Wrestlers can also check out season one of Monster Factory on Apple TV+. Much like Wrestlers, it follows a small promotion and training center, New Jersey’s Monster Factory, run by Danny Cage. Unlike Wrestlers, Monster Factory has definitively not been picked up for a season two and is looking for a new home.
Haus of Wrestling has partnered with Inside The Ropes to present An Afternoon With Kevin Nash And Sean Waltman on November 25 at Joe’s Live in Rosemont, IL, ten minutes from the All-State Arena. Tickets are now available at JoesLiveRosemont.com.
