OVW Launches Capital Campaign to Move to HD!

OVW needs to go HD to expand and better showcase its talent!

Ohio Valley Wrestling launches 2015 announcing a High Definition upgrade campaign. Originally founded in 1993, OVW is the longest running independent professional wrestling television show in the country today. The company recently celebrated its 800th television episode currently airing on ION-TV affiliate WBNA in Louisville, KY (DMA 48). OVW is respected the world over as the “Harvard of Pro Wrestling,” once the developmental training ground for World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) and Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA). The biggest superstars in the industry of the last 15 years cut their teeth on OVW television including John Cena, Brock Lesnar, Randy Orton, CM Punk, and more than 100 others.

Ohio Valley Wrestling continues to exist today on the dedication of its fans. The loyal people who attend live events, and who watch the show on air and online from around the world are the lifeline of the organization. OVW owner Danny Davis is as dedicated to those fans as they are to his company. That’s why the show continues to air on free local television, web episodes have no charge, and ticket prices have not increased in five years. In order to maintain this mutual dedication, OVW is appealing to the loyal crowd to help support the HD upgrade. Much like the weekly television show, it cannot happen without you. Every dollar of the $25,000 goal will go toward equipment upgrades including new cameras, lighting and sound equipment, and an HD switcher for our TV control room. Going HD brings the fans into the action with a sharper presentation.
The HD upgrade coincides with an Ohio Valley Wrestling expansion as they seek to move the television show into new markets like Eastern and Western Kentucky, as well as Indiana and Southern Ohio. OVW will offer gifts depending on your level of financial support. Elite contributors can participate in an OVW training class, step into the squared circle, and be featured on an episode of Ohio Valley Wrestling television.
For more than 20 years, Ohio Valley Wrestling has been home of professional wrestling’s superstars of tomorrow. Help them as they launch this exciting new chapter.
