Great Lakes Championship Wrestling returns to action this Saturday with Merrill Mania in Merrill, Wisconsin, featuring Scotty 2 Hotty. Also appearing will be Jessie Godderz.
The man called Mr. Pec-Tacular is the current and first ever Ohio Valley Wrestling National Heavyweight champ. He is also a former OVW Television champ and a six-time OVW Southern Tag Team champ. He previously wrestled in Total Nonstop Action Wrestling, where he won the tag tiles (with Robbie E) twice.
Godderz is known outside of the wrestling world for being on the 10th season of television's Big Brother. He was eliminated in the fourth week, but returned for the 11th season. He was evicted on the 40th day of that season.
I met Godderz at GLCW's Golden Days. At the pre-show meet-and-greet, Godderz heard special guest Terri Runnels discussing running with me and he asked me about my running when I went to his table. I found that interesting. He cared enough to ask and to engage me. That's a bit more than expected at meet-and-greets, but it left an impression and I appreciated him for it.
