Netflix Wrestlers Trailer explores OVW and aspiring wrestlers

Netflix has released a new Wrestlers trailer which is coming to the streaming platform this September 2023!

An official synopsis for Wrestlers reads, “Ohio Valley Wrestling in Louisville, Kentucky was once a proud finishing school for young wrestlers who hoped for a chance at a career in big time Pro Wrestling but times have changed. With new owners in the picture, once-famous pro wrestler Al Snow has been given the summer to turn OVW’s dire financial situation around. Wrestlers tells the story of a handful of eccentric misfits who attempt to come together to help Al save this historic gym while achieving their own wild dreams of wrestling professionally.”

Wrestlers is directed by Greg Whiteley (CheerLast Chance U), who also serves as an executive producer alongside BBC Studios’ Ryan O’Dowd. Speaking about the docuseries, Whiteley said how vintage Minolta Prime lenses from the early ’80s were used to attain just the right look. One catch was that wrestlers could only be seen clearly if the cameras physically moved in for a close-up, and while that created a fear with the filmmakers that it’d make the performers behave unnaturally, it was apparently the opposite that happened.
