Jessie Godderz (born April 23, 1986) also known as Mr. Pec-Tacular is an American professional wrestler signed with Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA) where he is a former two-time TNA World Tag Team Champion with Robbie E as The BroMans. Also, Godderz trained in TNA's farm territory Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW), where he won the OVW Southern Tag Team Championship five times. He has also appeared as a contestant on two seasons of the reality competition program Big Brother.

Early life[edit]

Godderz was born in Rudd, Iowa. When he was 19 years old, he worked as a conductor for the Union Pacific Railroad. He eventually became a professional bodybuilder with the World Natural Body Building Federation.

Big Brother[edit]

Season 10[edit]

In the summer of 2008, Godderz appeared as a contestant in the 10th season of Big Brother. During week 1, Head of Household Jerry nominated Godderz and fellow contestant Renny for elimination. He, however, won the Power of Veto and was able to remove himself from the chopping block. In week 2, Godderz won the Head of Household competition and nominated Steven and Dan for elimination. He was again nominated for elimination in week 3, but survived the eviction. Godderz was eliminated in week 4 by a 4–3 vote after he was nominated for elimination by April with fellow contestant Memphis. He returned to the house for one day only on Day 60 as part of a luxury competition.

Season 11[edit]

The following summer, Godderz returned to Big Brother for the 11th season. The twist for the season was that the HouseGuests would be split into four cliques. During the first Head of Household competition on the premier episode, Godderz entered the house after his clique, the athletes, won the competition. Godderz was therefore named the first Head of Household of the season. On Day 19, Godderz once again became Head of Household. On Day 40, Jeff exercised the power of Coup d'État and named Godderz and fellow contestant Natalie as the nominees up for eviction. He was evicted on Day 40 by a vote of 3–2, becoming the first member of the Jury—a group of former HouseGuests that decide the winner of the competition.

Other appearances[edit]

Godderz returned during three other seasons as a part of the Pandora's Box twist. During Big Brother 12, he offered Head of Household Britney fitness advice after she opened the box.

During Big Brother 13, Pandora's Box offered the HouseGuests a shopping spree with Tori Spelling. However, Rachel the Head of Household, was locked inside Pandora's Box with Godderz for a shopping spree of "Mr. Pec-tacular" merchandise, while the rest of the house earned the shopping spree with Spelling.

He made another appearance on Big Brother 14 when Head of Household Ian opened Pandora's Box. As a result, Godderz came into the house as Secret Santa and replaced all of the HouseGuests' junk food with healthier food.

He made another appearance on Big Brother 17 (U.S) to host the Veto Competition "Bowlerina".

Professional wrestling career[edit]

Total Nonstop Action Wrestling[edit]

Ohio Valley Wrestling (2011–2012)[edit]

In 2011, Godderz signed a contract with professional wrestling promotion Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA) and was sent down to their developmental territory, Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW) for further training.[5][6][7] On January 11, 2012 Godderz and Marcus Anthony defeated Johnny Spade and Shiloh Jonze to win the OVW Southern Tag Team Championship, but lost them 7 days later in a rematch with Spade and Jonze. On February 22, 2012 Godderz, Rob Terry and Rudy Switchblade defeated Jason Wayne and Shiloh Jonze in a handicap match to win the Southern Tag Team Championship.[8] The team's reign ended on April 7, when Godderz and Rudy Switchblade, who was also recognized as champion under "The Family Rule", were defeated by Anarquia and Raul LaMotta.[9] On April 11, 2012 Godderz and Switchblade defeated Anarquia and Raul LaMotta in a rematch for the Southern Tag Team Championship. On June 20, 2012 OVW Board of Directors member Ken Wayne stripped the titles away from Godderz and Switchblade, after referee Chris Sharpe allowed them to cheat to win the titles causing the titles to be vacated. On July 7, 2012 Godderz and Rudy Switchblade defeated Paredyse and Brandon Espinosa in a ladder match to win the vacant Southern Tag Team Championship for the fourth time. On December 1, 2012, Godderz and Switchblade were defeated by Alex Silva and Sam Shaw for the Southern Tag Team Championship.[10]

Relationship with Tara (2012–2013)[edit]

On October 14, 2012, at Bound for Glory, Godderz made his TNA debut on the main roster as Tara's "Hollywood boyfriend".[11] Godderz, billed simply as "Jesse", made his in-ring debut on the November 1 episode of Impact Wrestling, defeating ODB in an intergender match, following interference from Tara.[2] On the November 8 episode of Impact, Jesse teamed up with Tara in a losing effort to ODB in an intergender handicap match. After the match they attacked ODB.[12] Jesse made his pay-per-view debut three days later at Turning Point, teaming with Tara in a losing effort to ODB and Eric Young.[13] On the following episode of Impact Wrestling, Jesse defeated Young in a singles match.[14] The following week, Jesse was pinned by Young in a three-way match, which also included Robbie E and forced Jesse to wear a turkey suit as part of the Thanksgiving theme.[15]

Jesse main evented Impact Wrestling for the first time on December 13, losing to Bully Ray despite outside interference from Tara.[16] During the next two months, Jesse interfered in Tara's matches, especially ones relating to her title.[17][18] After interfering in Tara's title match with Velvet Sky,[19] Sky gained vengeance on the couple by teaming with James Storm on the January 31, 2013, episode of Impact Wrestling to defeat them in a mix tag team match.[20] The following week, Jesse was defeated by Storm in a singles match.[21]

Jesse started allying himself with Robbie E on the May 2 episode of Impact Wrestling, and the duo teamed with Joey Ryan in a handicap match against Rob Terry, which the team lost after Jesse and Robbie walked out on Ryan and left him to be pinned.[22] On the June 27 episode of Impact Wrestling, Jessie and Robbie, accompanied by Tara, confronted TNA World Tag Team Champions Gunner and James Storm and presented themselves as The BroMans.[23] The following week, The BroMans were defeated by Gunner and Storm in a non-title match.[24] Jessie's relationship with Tara ended on July 16, when she was released from her TNA contract.[25][26]

On October 27, during the Bound for Glory pre-show, accompanied by "Mr. Olympia" Phil Heath, the BroMans won a four-way tag team gauntlet to become the number one contenders for the TNA World Tag Team Championship later in the night, and they defeated Gunner and James Storm for the titles.[27][28] The BroMans made their first televised title defense on the October 31 episode of Impact Wrestling, defeating Gunner and Storm in a rematch.[29] The BroMans lost the titles against The Wolves during a house show on February 23, 2014.[30] They regained the titles by defeating The Wolves and Team 246 (Kaz Hayashi and Shuji Kondo) at the Wrestle-1 Kaisen: Outbreak show in Tokyo, Japan on March 2. On April 26, at Sacrifice, The Bromans lost their titles to The Wolves in a 3 vs 2 handicap match with Zema Ion as their third partner.[31]

On April 17, 2015 after losing a tag match to the Dirty Heels, Jessie and Robbie E got into a brawl, and Jessie left The Bromans.

The Man (2015–present)[edit]

On the TNA after Destination X, Jessie began a new gimmick, where he acted full of himself and referred to himself as a Mans Man. He also attacked DJ Z before Robbie E saved him. On June 28, 2015 at Slammiversary, Godderz was defeated by his former BroMans partner Robbie E. Godderz would go on to face Robbie again in a street fight the following edition of Impact Wrestling which he won.
