News On TNA/OVW Link

Credit:PWInsider

The TNA-Ohio Valley Wrestling relationship that was announced yesterday was the brainchild of Bruce Prichard, who was very familiar with the OVW developmental system when it was associated with WWE and pitched the idea to TNA executives several months back.
Prichard's selling point to TNA was said to be that the lion's share of WWE stars that broke through as top-tier talents came through OVW's seasoning, which would be correct, although many of them were signed by WWE prior to being sent to Louisville.

A visit was arranged with several Execs, including Prichard, Eric Bischoff and Jeff Jarrett, visiting the Davis Arena so they could get a feel for the venue and the way that Danny Davis operates. That actually went down a few months back as well, so this had been in the works for some time.

The new relationship will allow TNA to send potential talents they want to evaluate as well as younger TNA talents to Louisville, where they can gain seasoning in the ring from trainers like Rip Rogers and also experience working weekly TV and house shows.

Basically, everything will come from the existing OVW camp as opposed to OVW expanding operations to include additional responsibilities for a TNA developmental program.


The deal will also allow TNA the chance to monitor the regulars working OVW TV, which will be beneficial for Ohio Valley Wrestling as they'll gain new students seeking to break into TNA, much as they did previously with a huge influx of wrestlers trying to earn WWE developmental deals. OVW is a big winner there, as it places them back on the forefront of the map in a major way as the TNA relationship provides them an immediate conduit to new potential students, which will only help their bottom line and talent pool.

ProWrestling.net

Randy Orton came out and talked about leading his Survivor Series team. He said he was going to beat them one-by-one, but when he got to Wade Barrett, his music played and he came out. Barrett said he's a natural leader and said beating Orton's team at Survivor Series would show he's ready to be a World Champion for the first time.

Christian's music hit and he came out in a neck brace. He bigged up Barrett and said he inspires people. He said he and Barret should send a message and the three began to brawl. Sheamus ran out. Orton and Sheamus cleared the heels from the ring.

Teddy Long's music hit and he ordered Christian vs. Sheamus next. He also announced Barrett vs. Orton for later in the show.

1. Sheamus beat Christian with the Celtic Cross. Another good match between the two. One sweet spot was when Christian jumped out of the ring, got caught by Sheamus, who rammed him into the barricade.

Daniel Bryan was talking backstage with A.J. and Kaitlyn about he almost cashed MiTB last week. Mark Henry turned up and said how dare Bryan almost cash it in. He said Bryan had guts but he will spill them later tonight in their match.

A promo package for Ezekiel Jackson was shown. A terrible Teddy Long and Aksana backstage segment occurred. The less said the better. Alicia Fox was involved.

2. Ted DiBiase beat Jinder Mahal. Jinder didn't even get an entrance. Ted won quickly. Squash match.

3. Mark Henry beat Daniel Bryan. Henry won with the World's Strongest Slam. After the match, Henry got the chair meaning to break his leg, but Bryan got the chair and hit Henry with it. Henry no sold and gave him the World's Strongest Slam several times. He put him in the corner with the chair on his leg, but Big Show made the save.

Henry kept Show out of the ring, and hit Bryan on the back with the chair. Show stood on the apron and the two had a stare off until henry got out of the ring. Show got in, tossed the world championship back to Henry, then got on the mic to trash him.

4. Big Show defeated three enhancement wrestlers. Henry then trashed him from the ramp. Henry botched his promo afterwards. He did say he has impressed everyone and he will beat Show at Survivor Series and leave him with a lasting impression.

5. Alicia Fox beat Tamina

There was a bit with Sheamus and Matt Striker talking about Sheamus's temper. Then Mexican America, I mean Hunico, Epico and Primo made their way to the ring. The Uso's came out with their hake entrance.

6. Hunico and Epico beat The Uso Brothers.

TNA Reaches Deal With OVW

Focus On Development Key To TNA

NASHVILLE, TN (November 7, 2011)– TNA IMPACT WRESTLING announces that they are entering into an exclusive relationship with Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW), effective immediately, as the official training and developmental facility for TNA’s current and future stars of TNA IMPACT WRESLTING. Former wrestling star and OVW owner Danny Davis will work closely with TNA SVP of Programming and Talent Relations Bruce Prichard in the development of the talent through training, live events, and weekly television production allowing talent to explore every aspect of the business.

“OVW is the best of the best as far as training and nurturing potential superstars. Their track record speaks for itself. Whether looking to develop brand new talent or to fine tune existing talent, OVW has the talent and program to fit our needs.” says TNA’s Prichard. “TNA is providing developmental talent the opportunity to hone their craft in an environment that will allow them to grow and prosper.”

TNA talent will be arriving soon at the facility to begin an extensive training program with the industry’s leading experts. The program is akin to a college scholarship program where talent is provided a scholarship style agreement with TNA to learn the craft. The talent to attend the program is selected by TNA’s Prichard and TNA officials who will be monitoring the progress of each wrestler at camp and the live events.
