Here we are with the newest installment of OCW Spotlight as we take a look at Bruce Grey! Having spent a substantial amount of time as a professional wrestling referee, Bruce shocked us all when he took off the zebra stripes and put on wrestling boots. First aligning himself with Kaden Assad and Jeremy Madrox as part of Heat Seekers Inc., now “True Grit” seems to be on his own as he fights his way through the ranks. What will this path hold in store for Grey? We reached out to the former OCW Official turned OCW Wrestler to ask him a few questions. 

What has been your favorite match in OCW so far? 
BG: I'll tell you my least favorite, Jeremy Madrox's last match! Jeremy Madrox is a friend of mine! Honestly, I've enjoyed every win I've gotten thus far in OCW but I hold a special place in my heart when I sneak attacked Takahashi in Zanesville. So many years, and finally the US has payback for Pearl Harbor! USA! USA! USA! 

You infamously transitioned from OCW Referee to OCW Wrestler, first as the masked Jack The Seeker #2 and then revealing who you truly were behind the mask. What inspired you to make the changed from official to active competitor? 
BG: Honestly, I was perfectly happy collecting a double payday with reffing and wrestling as JtS2 as long as I could. If it weren't for the meddling Juice and Joey, I would have gotten away with it too! 

If you could pick one match against anyone on the OCW roster past or present what would it be? 
BG: Easy. Matt Mason.

What is next for “True Grit”? 
BG: Dishing out DDTs. Lots of them. 

Is there anything you would like to say to the OCW fans? 
BG: Buy my merchandise!

That's right! The announcement was made today on the OCW Facebook page that the ECW Original, "The Franchise" Shane Douglas will be making his way to TRADITION 12 in Coshocton, OH at the Hopewell School!

Here we are with the second installment of the all new OCW Spotlight. A new in depth look at the OCW roster. Each month we will focus on one member of the OCW roster and get a quick look into their mind, as well as a visual interpretation of who they are as a performer. And in today's Spotlight join us as we take a look at Matt Taylor! Over the past few years we have watched Matt Taylor evolve from a tag team competitor in the Noble Bloods as “Lord” Matthew Taylor and grow into singles competition. Since breaking out on his own, “Darkstar” Matt Taylor proved that with his athleticism and competitive drive that he is one of the most spectacular wrestlers in OCW history. We reached out to the former Ohio Heritage and two time OCW Tag Team Champion to ask him a few questions. 
 
What has been your favorite match in OCW so far?
MT: By far my favorite match so far was the Noble Bloods vs the Heat Seekers in Newark. The crowd was insane that night and made it very special.

You had one of, if not the best Ohio Heritage Title reigns in OCW history. What did holding that belt mean to you?
MT: The Ohio Heritage Title was very special to me and I took pride in being the champion. I look at as the work horse belt it's your job to go out there and put on an amazing match each time out and I like to think I did that.

If you could pick one match against anyone on the OCW roster past or present what would it be?
MT: Well I'm the type of person who likes a challenge and hates to fail and last time I faced Robby Starr I didn't get the result I wanted. I would love to do it again.

What is next for “The Darkstar”?
MT: Well like I said above, going after the OCW Heavyweight Title. I've been Tag Champ and Heritage Champ so it's the next step.

Is there anything you would like to say to the OCW fans? 
 MT: Thank every last one of you so much. You are what drives not just me but the whole OCW roster and you're what makes OCW so special.

Well the dust has settled from ASCENSION last Saturday night in our debut in Dover, OH. It was an amazing event that saw some returning talent, some new talent, and some younger talent furthering their path to OCW greatness.

With that being said, here is the second edition of OCW: Superiority.

Once again, we've collected the data, crunched the numbers, and entered all of our findings into the OCW super computer here at headquarters to compile a power ranking based on winning percentages and title history that lists the top 15 OCW competitors through our last event - ASCENSION.

Don't miss our upcoming event and the 12th Anniversary of OCW, back in Coshocton, OH on March 21st! Get your tickets now as we plan to pack out Hopewell School once again!

We are just a few short days before OCW drives into Dover, OH for OCW ASCENSION!

Who is going to fight off the OCW locker room, climb into the ring, fight off 3 more individuals, and finally climb that ladder and grab the brass ring; which may lead them to becoming the NEXT OCW Heavyweight Champion?

Can the Redneck Wrecking Crew withstand the brute force of The Rising and what kind of role will Jason Dragon play in securing the OCW Tag Titles for his team?

As hard as Takahashi has worked at raising his game and obtaining the Ohio Heritage Championship, can he successfully defend his OHC Title against mat veteran Justin Diaz?

All of this, plus much, much more this Saturday Night in Dover, Ohio!

Make your last minute plans now to be at the National Guard Armory for what should be another amazing night of professional wrestling action as only OCW can deliver.

We have received a number of messages concerning the actual Ascension match that will take place at ASCENSION presented by JD Byrider of Dover on January 24, 2015 in Dover, OH at the National Guard Armory.

The match starts with available members of the OCW roster around ringside. When the bell rings, the competitors start battling each other, while trying to get INTO the ring. When we have four guys in the ring, that part of the match is over and those four individuals qualify for the ladder match which takes place later in the night. The remaining individuals will be paired up in additional matches at that time (unless they are already in a signed contest).

In the final stage of Ascension, the four qualifiers must outlast each other and climb a ladder to obtain the "Brass Ring". The winner has the opportunity to challenge for the OCW Championship, currently held by Robby Starr.

Here is the highlight video of ASCENSION - 2013 for just a taste of what to expect!
