LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WYMT) - One regional wrestling organization is now under new ownership.

On Tuesday, Kentucky Sports Radio announced founder/host and Bell County native Matt Jones and Louisville businessman Craig Greenberg purchased a majority interest in Ohio Valley Wrestling, also known as OVW.

In a news release, the duo state they plan to “build on the rich legacy of Ohio Valley Wrestling and its Louisville-based training institute, grow the organization, promote and train the next generation of wrestling superstars, and bring exhilarating entertainment to wrestling fans locally and across the globe.”

The release also states WWE Legend Al Snow will continue to run day to day operations for the group.

Jones said in the release he is excited about the possibilities the new partnership will bring.

“Craig and I are excited about building OVW’s fan base and viewership, while showcasing the best wrestling in America,” said Jones. “With a legend like Al Snow running the wrestling and our massive KSR fan base joining in, we believe we can take OVW to the next level and create one of the world’s premier promotions right here in Kentucky.  We’re thinking big.  This is only the beginning.”

OVW started in Louisville in 1993. The group will offer a free online wrestling event on Saturday, January 9th at 7:30 p.m. You can find out more about that event here.
