Where is Freya the Slaya Now? We discuss the wrestler after her appearance in the 2023 Netflix documentary series Wrestlers.
From the creators of Last Chance U and Cheer comes a series that dives into the world of professional wrestling, Wrestlers. The seven-episode Netflix series follows the owners of Ohio Valley Wrestling in Louisville, Kentucky, as they try to get the company on the right track.
Throughout the series, we follow co-owner Matt Jones and his ultimatum that he gives Al Snow that the company must turn a profit over the summer or they might have to shut down OVW for good. As the two clash on certain styles, we see OVW head on a summer tour from state to state, hosting shows at fairs.
The highs of Wrestlers come from providing this in-depth look at the world of professional wrestling in a way that we’ve never seen before. We get to watch these athletes chase the impossible dream of signing that big contract with AEW or WWE while also trying to balance real-life situations.
Al Snow cares about his students and teaches them the ins and outs of the tough business.
The lows of Wrestlers come from the series overstaying its welcome with seven 60-minute episodes. You find yourself investing in these characters, but it eventually becomes a chore.
The series also takes some liberties within its storytelling that will be off-putting to core wrestling audiences. Either way, Wrestlers’ good can outweigh the bad for the casual fan or new audience.
