Ohio Valley Wrestling may no longer be WWE’s official developmental ground, but the company still has ties to the Sports Entertainment juggernaut.
OVW is the subject of the recent Netflix documentary ‘Wrestlers’ and is currently under the ownership of Matt Jones, Louisville mayor Craig Greenberg, and former WWE star Al Snow.
During the “Strictly Business” podcast, Snow told host Eric Bischoff about OVW’s current ties to WWE. He said,
“There are still a few people that I know in WWE that are still there, and I’ve retained those relationships. But, no, there’s no direct interaction or contact with WWE,” Snow said. “They’ll do a favor or whatever. If I want to do something and want to use some video footage that they own, they have no problem with that.”
WWE officially cut ties with OVW in 2008 but not before the latter promotion helped produce the likes of John Cena, Randy Orton, Batista, and Brock Lesnar.

Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW) may no longer be WWE’s official developmental ground, but it still maintains ties to the Sports Entertainment juggernaut. Currently under the ownership of Matt Jones, Louisville mayor Craig Greenberg, and former WWE star Al Snow, OVW has gained attention through the recent Netflix documentary ‘Wrestlers’.
In a conversation with Eric Bischoff on the “Strictly Business” podcast, Al Snow shed light on OVW’s current relationship with WWE. While there is no direct interaction or contact with WWE, Snow mentioned that he still maintains relationships with a few people in the company. He also stated that if OVW needs to use video footage owned by WWE, they have no problem granting permission.
It is worth noting that WWE officially severed ties with OVW in 2008. However, during their partnership, OVW played a significant role in producing some of WWE’s biggest stars, including John Cena, Randy Orton, Batista, and Brock Lesnar. This speaks to the talent and training provided by OVW, which helped shape these wrestlers into the superstars they are today.

With its ownership and rich history, OVW remains a respected entity within the wrestling industry. The Netflix documentary ‘Wrestlers’ has further highlighted the promotion’s significance and garnered attention from fans worldwide.
