Wrestlers is a docuseries on Netflix! There will be a total of seven, hour-long episodes.

While the gym at the center of the doc maintains a good reputation, thanks to it being able to bolster the reputation of so many wrestling stars, it’s not doing well financially anymore. The part-owner, acclaimed wrestler Al Snow, is doing whatever it take to make some money and keep the gym around for the next generation of wrestlers looking to be stars, per the synopsis.

We shared the official Wrestlers description from Netflix below:

"Ohio Valley Wrestling of Louisville, Kentucky is a regional wrestling gym whose alumni include Brock Lesnar, The Miz, John Cena, Dave Bautista and Randy Orton. Once a proud finishing school for aspiring pro wrestlers, the gym has since hit hard times. Acclaimed wrestler Al Snow clings to an old school wrestling philosophy with a heavy emphasis on storytelling, but in spite of the love of a few diehard fans, the gym struggles week to week to stay relevant enough to keep its doors open. Things have become so dire financially that Al has to sell a majority stake to a group of local businessmen including Matt Jones, the most popular radio personality in the state of Kentucky. Matt and the new ownership group have infused the struggling gym with much-needed cash but it still operates at a staggering loss. The new owners have given Al the summer to turn things around. Wrestlers chronicles the efforts Al and his band of aspiring wrestlers make as they struggle with their personal ambitions and each other while they attempt to come together to save this historic gym."

The trailer reveals interviews with Al Snow, as well as Louisville Mayor Craig Greenberg. Some of the athletes featured are HollyHood Haley J, Mike Walden a.k.a. Ca$h Flo, and The “Good” Reverend Ronnie Roberts.

The trailer teases how inner conflicts and competition affects the wrestlers, in addition to providing us with a glimpse at the financial struggles, and even the fans that still support the gym.
