[1999-07-10-OVW-TV] Show opening and Jim Cornette announcement

Recommended Posts

Time for some OVW. Their show opening music is "White Wedding". That's interesting. Jim Cornette enters the ring and is thrilled that he's moved back to Louisville. There was a need for the matchmaker spot and Cornette will be taking on that role. He has a few announcements. He explains the developmental deal in place with the WWF and explains that they will act as a farm system, but also says WWF stars will be working the Louisville Gardens shows when their schedule permits. Al Snow will defend against Droz at the July 20 show. Finally, he wants Kenny Bolin to come show his face and cuts a promo on him, telling Bolin he's his boss now and he's firing him as color commentator. Bolin doesn't take that well, saying Cornette will have to physically eject him if he wants him out. Wrestlers come to the ring and run him off.

Cornette has moved from Connecticut to Louisville. This all sounds nice but it feels like latter day SMW where they were depending on WWF guys to prop up the big Louisville Gardens shows.

The official beginning of the OVW and WWF partnership. Cornette gets announced and gets a big ovation and being named the matchmaker. He has some words for Kenny Bolin an relieves him of his announce duties.

Cornette looks like he's dropped weight and is closer physically to his Memphis/Mid-South days than he has been in years. The prospect of moving back home and booking and coaching without all the stress of singlehandedly running a promotion had to have done wonders for his stress levels. Al Snow vs. Droz isn't the most overwhelming announcement of the first WWF talent to work OVW, but baby steps, I guess. I look forward to seeing what OVW has to offer, hopefully more Power Pro-level stuff but far less seat-of-your-pants and more planned out.
