WWE HIRES NEW PRODUCER

By Mike Johnson on 2019-08-05 23:05:00

During Monday Night Raw, WrestlePro owner Pat Buck was shown during the aftermath of the Roman Reigns car accident as one of several on the scene checking on Reigns.

PWInsider.com has confimed that Buck was hired by WWE to work as a Producer for the company.  Buck worked several weeks back as a Guest Coach at the WWE Performance Center and was given a Producer tryout recently as well.  

Buck, 34 years old, broke into the business in the Northeast before moving to Louisville, Kentucky, where he was a regular wrestler for many years in Ohio Valley Wrestling when that promotion was WWE's primary developmental territory.   Buck was featured regularly on OVW TV, but for some reason, was never signed to a developmental deal despite being strong in the ring and making a lot of others look strong in the ring.    The fact he was never signed at the time has perplexed many of the years.

After WWE moved on from OVW, Buck returned to the Northeast, where he built the WrestlePro promotion (which runs regularly in New Jersey and New York and has even run live events in Alaska) with Kevin Matthews and launched the Create-A-Pro Wrestling Academy and promotion with Curt Hawkins, training AEW star MJF, among others.  We are told that while Buck will be working full-time for WWE going forward, WrestlePro will be continuing on with Matthews running point (Matthews had been the nucleus of the company in many ways anyway) and that the promotion's schedule will not change, although obviously, it would have a closer relationship with WWE.

Buck had been focusing on training and running WrestlePro in recent years, but inspired by PCO's big run, had been more active as an in-ring performer over the last year or so.
