During last night's OVW TV tapings, it was announced at intermission that referee Joe Wheeler would be retiring from the wrestling business. Kind words were said by Trailer Park Trash, "Nightmare" Danny Davis, & Dean Hill with the wrestlers and other referees out at ringside. Joe was a big part of OVW and will be missed, but he is ready to hang up the stripes. He has been in the business for a long time and refereed many matches.
He will officiate his final match next Wednesday night at Davis Arena in a tag team main event that will feature the tag team of Trailer Park Trash & Danny Davis.
