Ohio Valley Wrestling is under new ownership. During Impact Wrestling‘s stream at WrestleCon this morning, Al Snow announced he has purchased OVW.
Al Snow has been involved with OVW in the past, and has been working as a trainer for decades. He was the head trainer on the MTV series Tough Enough. As of late, he has been running his apparel line – Collar and Elbow, and training talent all over the world with Al Snow’s Wrestling Academy. Al Snow is considered by many to be one of the most underrated wrestlers of all time and is notable for being very vocal about his opinions on the industry.
OVW, merely months away from airing their 1000th episode of television, has been one of the most prominent developmental territories of the past 30 years. The alumni of the territory is a virtual who’s who of modern wrestling. From John Cenato Johnny Impact, from Batista to Wade Barrett, OVW probably had a hand in training your favorite WWE or Impact star. Under the tutelage of Al Snow, OVW will undoubtedly prosper for another thousand episodes.
