Big Brother and OVW star to Headline Event and Host Meet and Greet
Big Brother and Ohio Valley Wrestling star Mr. PEC-Tacular Jessie Godderz has been announced as the headliner for the upcoming Stadium Slam event hosted by the Bowling Green Hot Rods partner with Gladiator Sports and Ohio Valley Wrestling at Bowling Green Ballpark on Sept. 19. Godderz will be on the card and will host a meet and greet for VIP ticket holders.
Gates will open at 6:00pm with the show starting at 7pm. Tickets are available at www.bghotrods.com and are $15 for Reserved GA, $20 for Premium GA, and $35 for VIP. All ticket prices are for advance purchase pricing and tickets increase $5 on the day of the show. A portion of the proceeds for the event will benefit Special Olympics Kentucky.
This is the second time this year Gladiator Sports and Ohio Valley Wrestling and owners Al Snow and Chad Miller have been involved in helping out Special Olympics. Beginning in March, OVW hosted a weekly Fit Friday virtual workout for Special Olympics Kentucky athletes that ran for 8 weeks, until the state started reopening for other physical activity. The workouts were very popular with SOKY athletes and family members.
“We have a huge number of our athletes who are wrestling fans and regularly attend events,” said Special Olympics Kentucky President and CEO Trish Mazzoni. “Many of our athletes are already familiar with OVW and their wrestlers and are very excited to have them involved in our program. And on an international level, Special Olympics already partners with WWE. So, we’re thrilled to have the opportunity to continue our partnership with this great organization that is so dedicated to helping organizations in the community.”
OVW owner Al Snow added, “OVW is excited to bring our traveling show to these minor league stadiums to benefit such a wonderful organization.”
This will be the second live professional wresting event hosted at Bowling Green Ballpark. “When Special Olympics Kentucky and Al Snow approached us, we were 100% on board.” Said Eric C. Leach, Hot Rods General Manager and COO. “We love to host events and even more so when they are benefiting such a great organization.”
