What is Wrestlers about?

Wrestlers documents the fight to keep Ohio Valley Wrestling gym open. While the gym has been home to an array of famous faces, it has "since hit hard times", as per the synopsis. In the documentary series, Snow and his crew of wrestlers at the gym have one summer to turn things around and save the gym or it could face possible closure.

Wrestlers will also give a behind-the-scenes look at the world of professional wrestling and the effort that goes into it by the male and female athletes.

"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," the synopsis reads.

"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."
