Deep South Wrestling Scores Television Deal
By Ryan Clark | October 18, 2006
Deep South Wrestling, LLC (or DSW) is a professional wrestling promoter located in McDonough, Georgia. After Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW), DSW is the secondary developmental territory sponsored by World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), where WWE-contracted wrestlers can train before they are promoted to the main roster.
"This deal will allow us to present wrestling from a whole new perspective," said Rob Stevens, VP of Programming. "We plan to feature the behind the scenes training techniques and personalities of the up and coming stars of wrestling. I don't think people realize the discipline and training that is required by these people in order to be successful. We're not only going to feature their matches, but we're going to show viewers how they prepared for them."
The first show from this series is slated to premiere on Wednesday evening, October 18th at 9pm.
MavTV is making tremendous strides with its distribution, having now signed 16 distribution deals with various cable providers. With new markets launching every month, MavTV is now in more than 55 markets.
