New Detail In OVW/Netflix Deal Could Have Implications For WWE & AEW OVW/Netflix

A new detail has been revealed about the OVW and Netflix deal that could have implications for both WWE and AEW.

It was reported earlier this year that Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW) had landed a streaming deal with Netflix. Now, the latest update on the deal may have implications for two biggest wrestling promotions.

Per Fightful Select (subscription required), Netflix retains right of first refusal on the ability to gain OVW’s television rights. This is notable because Netflix has reportedly looked into live streaming content.

If true and successful, the streaming platform could be a player in the rights fees negotiations surrounding WWE and AEW in the coming years.

The report also explains how the deal between OVW and Netflix has been months in the making and features producers involved with Last Chance U.

Filming started for the series with the May 27 OVW show in Georgetown, Kentucky.

We will have further updates on this deal when they become available.
