Netflix's Wrestlers Star Receives WWE Tryout

"HollyHood" Haley J is at the WWE Performance Center this week.

Ohio Valley Wrestling has been a cornerstone of professional wrestling for decades. The former developmental territory of both WWE and Impact Wrestling has stood the test of time, running weekly local broadcasts out of Louisville, Kentucky despite having no current affiliation to a major company. OVW's struggle to survive is chronicled in the new Netflix docuseries Wrestlers, which spotlights owner Al Snow, new investor Matt Jones, and the dozens of diverse talent on the promotion's roster. Some of them like Jessie Godderz and Mahabali Shera have tangoed with the top dogs before while others like Cash Flo and Crixus have yet to get their shot at the big time.
