This is the first public confirmation that OVW would be featured on Netflix.
Fightful Select first reported that Netflix had filmed content for a reality-based show featuring OVW and its top talent. It was also noted that Netflix could pick up OVW’s television rights.
A Very Big Deal
Al Snow recently spoke with WrestleZone about the report. He did not confirm Netflix was the partner, but said that the new platform will be a big opportunity for everyone.
“We had a project last summer. There is a particular platform that it’s going to be coming out soon,” Al Snow said. “I can’t really elaborate more about it, but it concerns OVW and everything. I think it’s going to be cool and a very big deal for wrestling as a whole, and I think for [Ohio Valley Wrestling] especially. It’s going to be fantastic.”
