WWE Ends Ties with Deep South Wrestling

Courtesy of Dave Meltzer:

WWE severed ties with Deep South Wrestling today after Bruce Prichard spent time last week at the school and gave a negative report back to Vince McMahon. The ironic thing is Tom Prichard, Bruce's older brother, is the head coach at Deep South, although at this point Tom is still with WWE.

There had been problems from the beginning and rumors of its closing had come up several times.

At this point, there has been no talk about replacing Deep South with another developmental promotion. All talent from Deep South that will be retained by the company will be moved to Ohio Valley Wrestling.
