Impact Wrestling & OVW re-enter developmental agreement


Impact Wrestling and Ohio Valley Wrestling have re-established a relationship between the two promotions.

Impact and OVW announced today that they've re-entered into an agreement for OVW to "serve as an official development and training territory" for Impact. TNA/Impact and OVW's previous relationship began in November 2011, with OVW serving as a training territory for Impact until 2014. OVW was also a developmental system for WWE in the 2000s. 

OVW was purchased buy Al Snow last year.

“We are excited to grow our outreach and partnership with promotions worldwide,” Impact executive vice president Scott D’Amore said in a press release. “It is great to work with Al Snow and the team at OVW, which has a long history of developing great talent.”

“OVW is proud to be entrusted with the development of the true lifeblood of any professional wrestling promotion -- the in-ring talent,” Snow said.

The press release stated that Impact management will "look to OVW when scouting new talent and those on the development roster will see future opportunities to appear on the flagship weekly show IMPACT!"

Impact and OVW partnered together for a One Night Only show called "Clash in the Bluegrass" at Davis Arena in Louisville, Kentucky earlier this month.
