— Jessie Godderz, who appeared on the CBS reality program Big Brother, received a tryout match at the last set of Impact tapings in Orlando. WWE had shown interest in the bodybuilder as he spent the last few months working out at the company’s developmental promotion. At the request of TNA president Dixie Carter, he worked a dark match against Alex Shelley as she wanted to see how he would perform in the ring before committing to any type of contract with him. Reviews were said to be mixed on his in-ring performance. Both Taz and Kurt Angle advised Godderz to prove he’s serious by purchasing a pair of wrestling boots. With that being said, still no word yet on whether TNA intends to move forward with him.
On another note, many within TNA feel this is the latest case of Carter becoming enamored with featuring a reality television show star in her company, following the likes of Jenna Morasca, Jonny Fairplay and Joel “Truck” Anderson.
