OVW Show Information


One of the more difficult items of trying to keep track of bios is the low accounting of Ohio Valley Wrestling shows on the World Wide Web. This is a strange occurrence, since so many WWE superstars have come out of this training organization. So, just to make things easier on myself, as well as giving you something else to be informed about, here are selected OVW major events that I felt were worth noting.
