— Yahoo! Sports has an article on WWE Tough Enough 4 champion Daniel Puder and his present-day MMA exploits. In the article, he briefly talks about his career as a professional wrestler in Ohio Valley Wrestling in 2005, or rather, their fans. Puder said, “I was in OVW (Ohio Valley Wrestling). And we had this one town in Kentucky we went to every week, it was basically an old barn. There were the same 20 people there every time, they all looked the same, they all had maybe three teeth each, and they all had the same name. Finally one night I walked in and saw all the inbreds and thought to myself ‘What am I doing with my life?'” You can read the article at this link.
