-- Ohio Valley Wrestling announcer and manager Kenny Bolin announced Wednesday that it would be his last day working for the promotion for the foreseeable future due to personal issues in his life. Bolin released the following statement Friday thanking fans and colleagues for their support.
"I do want to thank all the fans, wrestlers and Staff at OVW last night for really making me feel like a KING ! i have never felt so special and loved in all my life. I have been inducted into the OVW hall of fame which only has 5 members but when Danny Davis, AL Snow, Frank Miller and my Long time Broadcast partner Dean Hill voted to have the world wide known "Gorilla Position" renamed the "Bolin Position" (the entrance area near the curtain) at Davis arena and all OVW shows from this day forward. I nearly broke down when Dean presented me with this honor at the End of the TV taping. the be mentioned in the same breath as Gorilla Monsoon is more than i could ever live up to. i could have never expected such a tribute to my name while i was still living. this was better than having a park named after me in La Grange Ky. "hint, hint" LOL I love you all at OVW and my friends and fans and i truly hope i get to return one day. OVW will always be a part of my life!
