Last month at Pro Wrestling Epic we were on hand to watch the PWE Champion the Mississippi Madman team up with former WWE’s Eugene to take on “The Future” Donovan Ruddick and Mason Beck.
During the evening I had the chance to sit down with a young Michael Hayes. Hayes is just beginning to train under Eugene (Nick Dinsmore )and the rest of the staff at Ohio Valley Wrestling.
The website says it best
Ohio Valley Wrestling is recognized around the world as one of the finest professional wrestling training facilities in the industry. OVW counts among its many accolades that it was once one of the official developmental programs for World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), the sport’s leading promotion.
Over the years, OVW has trained over one hundred superstars for the WWE, including many current and past WWE Champions: Batista, John Cena, Victoria, Doug and Danny Basham, Shelton Benjamin, Charlie Haas, Randy Orton, plus many more including Rob Conway, Eugene, Sylvan Grenier, Bobby Lashley, and Lance Cade.
Located in Louisville, Kentucky, OVW‘s training center is under the supervision of OVW owner “Nightmare” Danny Davis, a former pro wrestler with nearly 30 years’ experience in wrestling, managing, promoting, and training, with Rip Rogers as lead trainer – who is a veteran pro wrestler and trainer in his own right.
Let me share with you a special interview I did with Hayes.
