Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW) is an American developmental professional wrestling promotion based in Louisville, Kentucky. OVW was initially a member promotion of the National Wrestling Alliance from its inception in 1997 until 2000; when it became the primary developmental territory for World Wrestling Entertainment. OVW remained in this role from 2000 until 2008. The promotion was unaffiliated from February 7, 2008 until November 2011, when it became the official and current developmental territory for Total Nonstop Action Wrestling. As of December 2011, over 100 OVW alumni have appeared in WWE. OVW is now the developmental territory for Total Nonstop Action, run by owner Danny Davis.
