Default TNA Gets Major Publicity From Latest Signing

The media has gotten the attention of the newest TNA wrestler, Jesse Godderz. A former reality star on the CBS show "Big Brother"

He's been covered on TMZ, MTV, Entertainment Tonight and now ESPN.

Quote:
New TNA Wrestler Jessie Godderz posted a link to an ESPN article on his twitter page covering him signing with TNA:

Mama won't be happy.

But Jessie Godderz -- Mr. Pec-Tacular from CBS' "Big Brother" -- is heading to TNA Wrestling this fall as an arrogant musclehead.

Godderz, who starred as the loudmouth bodybuilder on Seasons 10 and 11 of the CBS show, recently signed a developmental deal with the hopes of debuting before the end of the year.

"My mom hates that I'm likely going in as a bad guy, but I told her that I might be good later!" said Godderz, who is 5-foot-9 and 200 pounds. "Now, my girlfriend… she has been with guys with huge egos, and she's a huge fan of me as a wrestler."

Godderz, 25, parlayed his fame on "Big Brother" into magazine covers and fitness events talking about natural body building. And now he's becoming a wrestler.

"This is a lifelong dream of mine and it's coming true," Godderz said. "Impact Wrestling is giving me a chance. That's all I ask. They want me to take the ball and run with it."

Godderz has the swagger but really is a small-town boy, having grown up in Rudd, Iowa. His high school graduating class was 54 students, and both his parents combined to bring home less than $50,000.

Godderz got into weightlifting at Northern Iowa Area Community College and decided to head west to make it big in California. He appeared on several shows before finding the right fit on "Big Brother."

"On TV, it's all schtick. Everything is played up. I'm not that outlandish," said Godderz, who got his nickname from a roommate. "I'm from Iowa with homespun moral standards. I did what I had to do to be a star on TV."

And now he is hoping to be a star in the ring.

"I would love to do this for several years and keep going as long as my body lets me," he said. "I don't want to lose focus. The sky is the limit."

His mic skills aren't bad. He seemed nervous and quite honestly, nobody does a 3 minute promo on themselves.

The interesting thing is his body resembles and looks like Cena but he moves around like a cruiserweight. He's got some good potential. He already has a cult following as well.

wELL GOOD FOR him if he can make it, wich i don't know. 5.9 200lbs, seems to be like a Chris Benoit type ( without the mental issues) so it might be interesting to see him in the ring ( if he makes it). Mic skills can improve over time, even Hogan and Flair didn't do good promos over night so i will give him some slack when i see him talk on TV.

Time to add another match to everyone's fantasy WWE vs TNA card!
Battle of the Reality TV stars! I Love New York's David Otunga vs Big Brother's Jesse Godderz! Let the HOLY SHIT chants begin..

Seriously though. I've been waiting for this for quite some time. Being an avid BB viewer since it's debut season, I remember him sitting in the kitchen talking about being a WWE Superstar. When I heard TNA signed him a while back, my first thought was "Yeah I figured as much." Despite him killing any chance of making it big in WWE by associating himself with TNA... I think he actually will find great success. TNA loves pushing anyone with outside wrestling connections. Even someone like Robbie E got championship gold pretty quick, just because his GIMMICK resembled something popular in society. I really think Eric Young's current gimmick of running around challenging TV stars, and trying to be on TV.. is going to result in Jesse debuting, pounding him, and becoming the Television Champion on his debut night. How they build him and establish his character from then on out could go either way. But it will be interesting to watch.

It's even bigger you forgot The Miz handicap match.

Honestly though I really don't see much from him. Being built like Cena doesn't get you anywhere having skills do. I don't know how much publicity he will get as well I've never heard of Jessie Godderz and for that matter I nevear heard of Mike Mizanin either.

I enjoyed watching him on BB and I think he can make a good cocky heel. My only fear is since his ring gear is kinda like the Miz's that people will try to go on about how TNA is just making a Miz clone. For anyone who hasn't seen him in action he has some matches on youtube.

ill be honest i cant see him being that good in the ring but ill give him a chance...god i couldnt stand this guy on big brother but honestly he wont have to try that hard to be a heel hes pretty annoying just being himself! but someone else said they think hes gonna end up winning the tv title in his debut from EY....thats actullay pretty easy to picture with EY doing his current gimmick then he says hes conqured hollywood (on impact in the ring of course) then jesse slides into the ring from behind and kicks his ass before winning the title...i can already see it happening not sure if this is good or bad well i guess we will see

Yeah...i just watched him on youtube...he doesn't move like a cruiserweight at all. I see headlocks,chops, clothslines etc...and he IS NOT built like Cena...he was literally the smallest guy in the ring. If TNA spends time pushing this guy (and we know they will) they will waste alot of air time and money. We will probably see him walking around in lame suit with a (worthless TNA bottom card) title on his shoulder cutting horrible cocky guy promos. How can i not call him a Miz wanna be when that is clearly all he is...

I was all willing and ready to buy this guy as a big dominating muscle head. Watched his you tube matches and by fuck is he small. I don't think he's going to be able to wrestle the way he may want to wrestle, I mean I know smaller guys, most noticeably people like Kendrick or Red (as were) could get over doing the small guy shtick, but he certainly can't wrestle that way. But at the same time he can't wrestle like Goldberg because he's so limited by his height it won't be believable.

Strangely enough I can see him as an ironic comedy character, a little sted head who overvalues himself and doesn't see what everybody else is laughing about when they face him. Comedy jobber 4 Lyf eh? Other than that, if they actually intend to push him as a legit. star, they are going to have to have him wrestle the Miz/Christian cowardly heel style. You can have all the muscles in the world when you're 5"9, you could be built like Rob Terry, but you're still going to look like you're 5"9 predominantly.

Also, goes without saying that mic skills need brushing up on. It's not the content, it may have been a scripted promo (at least it appeared to be) but I didn't find fault with what he was saying, plays arrogant well. It's something often underrated for a performer, the voice. He sounds tame on the mic. Hopefully he'll pick this up before debuting in the impact zone.

Wow, when the Miz debuted TNA marks made fun of the WWE and the Miz, now TNA signs a worse reality star and the marks pretend it's a great thing. Typical...

In what way is he a "worse reality star"??

Godderz had a huge cult following, and is the biggest star ever produced by Big Brother, which is a highly-rated show(especially when Godderz was on it) on a national over-the-air network.

Miz was just some kid from a cable reality show that is designed to appeal to only the mid-teens to late-20s crowd; on a network that caters exclusively to that age range as well.

Jesse Godderz is a much bigger star than Miz was prior to breaking into wrestling.

Hell, Godderz is a more recognizable name from a mainstream perspective than probably eighty percent of every wrestler in TNA or WWE right now(and that may be a very conservative estimate).

Do I think that he will have Miz's success? Doubtful. But if he does, this is one of the best signings TNA could make.

You really can't criticize TNA for making this move. The guy is already a star, brings in a built-in fanbase, seems committed to making the most of the opportunity, and has a pretty good look and some raw natural talent. This is a low risk signing that will create alot of buzz. There is alot of potential for this to be a big payoff move. Bringing in Godderz is a smart risk to take across the board.

And from the matches of his I've seen, though he still clearly needs to improve, I can say this with confidence... he's already better in the ring than David Otunga.
