About OVW

The Future Is Now

Thanks for visiting the online home of Ohio Valley Wrestling

This is where the future happens, and has for nearly 30 years.

“Nightmare” Danny Davis, formerly known as “The Nightmare” in USWA and NWA and a former manager for Jerry “The King” Lawler, founded OVW in 1993.

The company has had a hand in the training of John Cena, Randy Orton, Brock Lesnar, CM Punk, Mickie James, Cody Rhodes, Shawn Spears and a near-endless list of talent now seen on Monday and Wednesday nights.

OVW became the world’s only state-accredited professional wrestling trade school in 2019, continuing a trailblazing path that the company has set for almost 30 years.
