Earlier today reports started swirling around the internet that one of TNA Wrestling’s trainers in Ohio Valley Wrestling and former TNA World Tag Team Champion, Television Champion, and X-Division Champion Douglas Williams was released by the company. While there is still no official update from the team at iMPACT Wrestling, Williams did note on his Twitter account that it is shame that he won’t get a chance to train with Quinton “Rampage” Jackson. This would seem to confirm the rumors that he is no longer a trainer at OVW.
Here is the tweet from Williams:
A huge shame I won't get the chance to train with Rampage Jackson. What an honour that could have been.

If this is, in fact, true, then we wish Williams all of the best out there. He was one of the better mat technicians to come through iMPACT Wrestling and always a lot of fun to watch in the ring.
