Kenny Bolin (born March 16, 1960) is a former professional wrestling manager and author, best known as the lead villainous manager in Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW) as the manager of Bolin Services. He also hosts a podcast radio show called The Bolin Alley with Brian Last. On the show, he is often critical of today's wrestling content, and has feuded with other Who's Slamming Who on-air talent, including Jim Cornette, Lanny Poffo, and Pro Wrestling Illustrated's Brady Hicks.

Personal life[edit]

Bolin was born in St. Petersburg, Florida. He lived in La Grange, Kentucky from 1962 until 1984, and briefly in 1990 before moving to Louisville, Kentucky. He and Jim Cornette have been friends since childhood. He also has a son named Christopher Bolin, who followed in his footsteps and became a professional wrestling manager.

Professional wrestling career[edit]

Bolin began his career as a professional wrestling manager in Nashville, Tennessee in November 1987.[1] He was the timekeeper for Smoky Mountain Wrestling. Bolin joined Ohio Valley Wrestling when the company was formed in 1997.[1] On July 15, 2012, he and Jim Cornette were inducted to the OVW Hall of Honor. On September 26, 2012, Bolin announced that he would be stepping away from OVW and professional wrestling in general to deal with "family issues".[2] Two weeks later, his son Christopher Bolin also left the company.
