Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW) is an Americanmarker independent professional wrestling promotion based in Louisville, Kentuckymarker. OVW is run by owner Danny Davis and the organization was a member of the National Wrestling Alliance (as NWA Ohio Valley Championship Wrestling) from 1998 until 2000, when OVW became part of the World Wrestling Entertainment developmental program, which it was a member of until February 7, 2008.

History

Jim Cornette was head booker of OVW for a period before being fired by WWE for slapping a student, Anthony Carelli. He was replaced by Paul Heyman who booked OVW until being called up to be the booker of the ECW brand. Greg Gagne was supposed to be booker after Heyman, but his knowledge of OVW was limited so the booking was extended to also include Al Snow and Danny Davis. Gagne was later released from the company, leaving booking to Snow and Davis.

On February 7, 2008, WWE announced that they had ended their relationship with OVW as a developmental territory, moving all contracted talent to Florida Championship Wrestling. However, on September 23, 2008, OVW announced that WWE Senior VP John Laurinaitis visited and scouted OVW wrestlers and that WWE will take "a much more active role in recruiting OVW developed talent."

Television

OVW currently airs a 60-minute television program Saturdays on WOBZ-LP in London, Kentuckymarker at 9:00 p.m., and on Lexington, Kentucky's CW affiliate WKYT at 11:00 p.m. OVW now has streaming video via their website ovwrestling.com, for both the Louisville area and anyone out of market. The television shows originate from the Davis Arena in Louisville.
