But who to?
After 22 years in business and mentoring more than 150 athletes to
professional wrestling’s national stage Ohio Valley Wrestling owner
Danny Davis will immediately step away from the company he founded.
Monday Davis announced the completed sell of majority ownership in
Ohio Valley Wrestling to a private investor. Davis said, “I have been
searching for the perfect person to carry on OVW's legacy and I believe
I’ve found them.”
OVW launched in 1993 and eventually grew into the developmental
training territory for both World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) and
Total Nonstop Action (TNA) the two largest sports entertainment
companies in the United States. Davis’ resume is unmatched. No other
professional wrestling company in the world has helped more talent
fulfill their dreams on the national stage. Davis played a vital role in
coaching the biggest stars in the wrestling industry over the last two
decades including John Cena, Brock Lesnar, CM Punk and Randy Orton.
“I want to thank the guys and girls who allowed me to play a part in
their careers and the OVW fans for their unwavering dedication.” He
said, “I’ve been mulling this decision for several weeks and the time is
right for my family to begin a new chapter.”
Davis’ career started in the 1970’s in the old Memphis wrestling
territory. He's respected the world over as “The Nightmare” a tag team
wrestling expert. On July 4th, Davis teamed with
one of his first students, “Ironman” Rob Conway, a former WWE Superstar
and multi time NWA World Champion at the OVW Saturday Night Special.
Davis is inviting all fans, media and OVW wrestlers past and present to this Wednesday’s television taping, July 8th, 2015. The new majority owner of Ohio Valley Wrestling will be introduced.
