MavTV Ready to Rassle

MavTV is getting into the ring, Deep South-style.

The men’s-targeted network reached an agreement to air Deep South Wrestling, with the debut installment set for Wednesday at 9 p.m.

DSW and Ohio Valley Wrestling are secondary developmental territories sponsored by World Wrestling Entertainment.

“This deal will allow us to present wrestling from a whole new perspective,” MavTV vice president of programming Rob Stevens said in a prepared statement. “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.”
