Al Snow Purchases Ohio Valley Wrestling, Talks His Goals

Published

on

After founding Ohio Valley Wrestling in 1997, Danny Davis has now sold the promotion to another former WWE Superstar Al Snow as first announced by WDRB 41. OVW out of Louisville, Kentucky is likely most known for its days as a developmental territory for WWE, seeing the likes of John Cena, Brock Lesnar, Batista, Randy Orton, CM Punk and many others come through on their way to the main roster. The promotion would also serve as a developmental territory for Impact Wrestling.

After 21 years Davis is retiring and moving to Florida. Believing he has left his former promotion in good hands. Al Snow had this to say regarding his vision and the purchase:

“What I have in mind is to create a great developmental center for wrestling talent to come find themselves, learn their craft, and learn it from truly experienced professional wrestlers,” said Snow in an interview with FITE TV. “I’ve always said that when you attend a wrestling school, or a wrestling training academy of any sort, that you take it much like if you were going to a university. If you want to go for accounting, you go in, you pay your tuition, you ask the Dean, ‘Ok, what’s my professor?’ and he goes, ‘this guy’s really good, he’s very talented.’ Well great! Who’s he work for? What’s he done? What kind of experience he has?

“Well, he’s never really went anywhere, he’s never really done anything, but he’s really good, he’s at the top of his class. That’s great, but if he doesn’t have experience, that means he has no real knowledge. If he has no real knowledge, there’s no way that he can communicate to you what you need to know. So you better take advance of any opportunities that may come up for you.”

WWE RAW
Jimmy Jacobs defends against criticism of WWE’s recent RAW ratings!

To say that many fans and members of the wrestling media have been taking WWE to task in recent weeks over the ratings, most specifically for Monday Night RAW, would definitely be called an understatement.





After declining viewership for three consecutive weeks and record lows (check out this week’s numbers), the criticism of the company’s booking has not been hard to find. So much so that it has even been put into angles on television, as we saw this past Monday with the opening segment involving Seth Rollins and Baron Corbin. When the ratings for the red brand were revealed yesterday, The Wrestling Observer’s Bryan Alvarez took to Twitter to offer his thoughts on the results:

One person who took notice and would actually come to WWE’s defense would be former member of the company’s creative team and current independent star, Jimmy Jacobs. Jacobs was let go last year after he took a photo with members of The Bullet Club while they were outside of a Monday Night RAW taping. Now competing for the likes of MLW and IMPACT Wrestling, Jacobs was quick to point out the other side of the coin to Alvarez:

Not only did this earn a reply from WWE Superstar Seth Rollins, but interestingly enough, Matt Jackson of The Young Bucks would also agree with Jacobs:

Jacobs would continue, replying to a number of fan responses:
