Donnie Hoover


Owner of New Ohio Wrestling, Owner and Co-Host of The WrestleHorror Podcast, Former Co-Owner of The Trail of Tormented Terror - Donnie Hoover has found a way to combine his 2 passions of horror and wrestling. He started his pro wrestling career in 1997 – with his in-ring career spanning 6 years, working in multiple promotions around the mid-west and into Canada. Following that, he continued to keep his finger on the pulse, and in 2015 Donnie and his wife Terrie, returned to the world of professional wrestling in 2015 when they created their own promotion called New Ohio Wrestling (NOW). Donnie’s love of horror however started at the age of 14 when, in 1986, his father took him to see the movie One Dark Night. This also planted the seed for his love of haunted attractions. He got his first opportunity to act 11 years ago on a whim, and then one day an opportunity arose to create The Trail of Tormented Terror. Although the trail only lasted a few years, it was there that Donnie started to develop the WrestleHorror concept and the idea of adding pro wrestling moves and showmanship to haunt characters. After meeting “Meathook” Jim Millspaugh, the WrestleHorror Podcast was created soon after. Donnie has many years of pro wrestling and haunt knowledge but his biggest asset is that his goal is to learn something new every day.
