Earlier today, IMPACT Wrestling announced they will resume their developmental partnership with OVW. This will mark the return to the home for the promotion’s developmental talent from 2012 to 2014, following the success of the co-promoted One Night Only: Clash .
According to the press release, 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!”
OVW is also the former developmental territory for WWE, boasting alumni that includes John Cena, Brock Lesnar and reigning IMPACT World Champion Johnny Impact. WWE announced it had ended its relationship with OVW on Feb. 7, 2008, moving all of their developmental talent to Florida Championship Wrestling.
Former WWE superstar, Al Snow, acquired OVW, last summer.
“We are excited to grow our outreach and partnership with promotions worldwide,” said IMPACT Wrestling Executive VP Scott D’Amore. “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,” said OVW CEO and owner Al Snow.
