It's a shame that TNA will do absolutely nothing with any of the talent in development, but they do need a farm system and OVW has a proven track record, plus a good relationship with ROH. As a system, it works perfectly and I'm shocked that WWE are so adamant on retaining their current development process with FCW so clearly a piece of crap.

It was a smart move on TNA's part. Hopefully they use it to their advantage and use it to make new young stars of their pwn. Instead of stealing Ex-WWE Talent.

 

I wouldn't say that is a bad thing, Mark? Of course, it would be nice to get a few homegrown wrestlers coming through but if you have the chance to take someone who was well known in WWE, and perhaps fell off the wayside, career - wise; you'd surely try and get them in?
