WWE’s Future with OVW/FCW, Announcer Not Re-signed, More

– WWE now has a “working relationship” with its former developmental territory Ohio Valley Wrestling. OVW is not being considered as an actual developmental territory at this point, but WWE will be sending Superstars there for occasional TV tapings and Six Flags show to help the promotion out so Danny Davis doesn’t have to shut everything down. It’s been getting harder to foot the bill for TV tapings and they’ve recently had to start taping OVW and Derby City TV on Wednesdays and charge $5 for admission.

Timmy Baltimore, an announcer who was signed to a developmental deal, is also returning to OVW. His contract already expired with WWE and they chose not to re-sign him. Baltimore was sent to FCW after being hired and while some say he’s good enough to be put right on WWE TV, he was forced to work as a bell ringer and doing other stuff for Dusty Rhodes in Tampa. Baltimore didn’t get to announce a single time and basically told the company that if he knew that was what he would have been doing, then he would not have signed in the first place.

According to one source, WWE is planning on signing one or two guys at the upcoming talent clinic in Florida Championship Wrestling and then tell the rest of the talents that try out to keep training in OVW or at ’s school and that they will “keep an eye on them.”
