The OCW has a long and varied history and dates back to 2007. However, those are “real world” years. In the realm of Imaginary Wrestling the OCW has only been in existence for about 2-3 months. However, as anyone can tell you who watches real pro wrestling, a LOT can happen in 2-3 months. This is why I created the OCW Recap page. Here you will find summaries of every Monday Night Meltdown, PPV or other significant show that gets put on. This way, instead of spending an entire day reading through previous show results you can come here and be caught up in about 15-20 minutes. This should be a significant help to those newcomers just joining us and also for those old timers who have been around but maybe forgot a few things or needed a refresher course.
The recap page will be updated after each show or PPV and kept current. As always I encourage people to read the actual shows at their leisure because a lot of time and work on many peoples part went into creating the action and excitement of the OCW. However, I understand many people want to jump right in and get started and that is where the usefulness of this page becomes apparent.
Not every match is listed in the following recaps. Instead, only the important matches and events surrounding major angles and storylines are outlined here as well as title changes. If something catches your eye and you would like to learn more about the event in question you can, of course, refer to the original write ups. Enjoy.
Short OCW History:
The OCW (Outlaw Championship Wrestling) Was begun by Texas billionaire David Diamond in an effort to get back to the popoular roots of wrestling he loved watching throughout the 80’s and early 90’s. In doing so he recruited some of the finest talent he could afford, bringing them to the river city of Lousiville, Kentucky to compete in his new wrestling organization, Outlaw Championship Wrestling.
Event: Dawn of Champions
The first event to be held was the “Dawn of Champions”, a PPV held to determine the new OCW World and Tag Team Champions. The Tag Belts were won in a tournament by “The OG” the “gangsta” team of Loball and Smooth T when they defeated the team of the Horsemen 2k7, cousins Ax and Olsen Alexader, thanks to some interference by The British Bluebloods, a team The Horsemen faced earlier in the evening. Also in the Tag Tournament, The team of the Hellcats brutalized the team of Toxic Shock and sent them to the hospital. The World Title belt was decided in an over the top rope elimination Battle Royal when “Crippler” Brett Steele used trickery to outlast all others (by hiding under the ring) and eliminating “Thor” to become the first ever OCW World Champion.
This took us to the new Monday Night show OCW’s Monday Night Meltdown!
Event: MNM Week 1:
After the Dawn of Champions PPV, a tournament was held on the OCW flagship program to determine a new OCW TV Champion. The last twelve competitors in the previous night’s battle royal were entered in the tournament and the action was called by “Scooter” Sparks and veteran masked grappler Corporal Punishment. In addition to the tournament, notable matches saw insane stripper Margharita begin a feud with Henry “The Hobbit” Baggins and a rematch between The Bluebloods and the other Horsemen 2k7, Sully Blackburn and Dic Blair. In addition, Headhunter had a vicious match with King Cut that ended with Cut nailing Headhunter with a baseball bat. The tournament ended with Thor defeating Gladiator (One half of the tag team “The Awesome Ones” and taking the TV Title. Crippler Bret Steele also defended his new belt by handily defeating Dic Blair of the Horsemen 2k7.

The Super Dragons, under orders from David Diamond went on to compete for the Tag Titles and won them from the OG. After a match with the Awesome Ones Mr.Lucifer, manager of the Hellcats announced two new acquisitions to his “Army of Darkness” – Toxic Shock!

Her ally, Yojimbo then showed up…limping. Diamond booked both in a match against The Awesome Ones. Lil Tokyo and Yokimbo won the match but The Ninja interefered and was revealed to be Silver Dragon. In the ensuing confusion Lil Tokyo was blinded and put her ankle lock on Yojimbo.

Headhunter’s brother Kai, a tall red haired monster of a wrestler arrived in the OCW to help his little brother in his battles with King Cut, citing that headhunter was bringing shame on the family. In the following match Cut won by DQ when Headhunter went to hit him with a bat and nailed the ref. Crippler Bret Steele again successfully defended the OCW World title in a match against Razor Girl of the Hellcats when Buck Leeds, a midcard jobber, on orders from the Horsemen 2k7 interfered and took out Razor Girl (He was promisd a spot in the Horsemen who were viewing the Army of Darkness as a viable threat).

Event: MNM Week 4:
The Executioner and his new partner “Noose” reveal their new tag team- “The Hangmen!” Lil Tokyo announces she is in need of a partner she can trust in her battle against the Super Dragons and feels Yojimbo is untrustworthy. New grappler Roland Hard arrives and they have a match for her to determine if he is worthy to be her partner. Tokyo wins and both show mutual respect. Diamond books the Bluebloods/Allies and Horsemen 2k7 in a triple tier steel cage to settle their differences once and for all when the Horsemen annoucne they are leaving the OCW and “heading north” for more money and the British Bluebloods were being deported back to Britain due to a mix up with their paperwork. Margharita steps up the Baggins feud by coercing Baggin’s mother to give her his wrestling trophies and family valuables, then proceeds to shoot everything up. Baggins confronts Diamond about it who promptly tells Baggins he’s a ratings killer and he’s got one more match to get his revenge against Margharita, because afterwards he was being given his release from the OCW. The match ends with Margharita winning via countout thanks to help from Miss Bling. Thor defended his TV title against Razor Girl who won by DQ, allowing Thor to retain the title.

Event:MNM Week 5:
This four hour extravanagza kikced off with Dusty Diamond, David Diamond’s daughter arriving and taking over the OCW for her father who had left on an extended vacation and not returned. She laid it on the line that she was there to turn a profit and cut costs-and jobs- if need be. She demonstrates this by cutting loose the Awesome Ones and announces Thor left and the TV Title is vacant. The newest addition to the broadcast team, Jackie Midnight, took over interviewing duties. The announcers delivered sad news that Headhunter perished when his ambulance crashed into a tree and exploded into flames last week. The results from the Tower of Revenge match was that Primetime had to wear a protective mask and The Spartan was out with injuries. The TV Title Tournament kicks off with a match between the former “King Cut” Damien Genesis going up against Headhunter’s brother, Kai. Lil Tokyo faced off against Yojimbo who showed his true colors and tried to hurt Lil Tokyo. Margharita and Bling faced off but Margharita jumped Bling before the match and powerbombed her on the concrete, sending her to the hospital. A new wrestler called “Blood Rage” debuted, but lost to Roland Hard in the tournament. “Big Daddy” Ewing arrived in the OCW announcing his stable “Big Oil” that includes The Hangmen and a new grappler “The Outlaw” Bobby Jack Casey. Kai had a ceremony for his deceased brother and explained there was nothing left to bury of his brother. He had an urn that began to emit a green fog and a hollow laugh was heard throughout the OCW Arena. The Hellcats won the OCW Tag Titles from the Super Dragons. A woman showed up and criticized The Hellcats for attacking Corporal Punishment the previous week during an interview. We learn this is his daughter Major Punishment who challenges the Hellcats to a match next week. In the TV Tournament finale, Lil’ Tokyo who fought all the way through defeated Roland Hard for the belt, but after the match a masked woman showed up and attacked Lil’ Tokyo, beating her with her own belt. Yojimbo allied with the Super Dragons and the masked woman who we found out was called “Crimson Mask” to form the stable “Black Sun”.

Event: MNM Week 6
Week 6 saw several changes, including the show moving to the new OCW Arena- a run down warehouse in the west end of Louisville due to budget cuts. In addition, Dusty hired some out of work luchadores to work security (known as Los Security). Strucka of the Awesome Ones convinced Dusty to give him a chance, she did and booked him in a “Contract on a chain” match against Smashin’ Taz. Strucka won and Taz was forced to leave the OCW. David Diamond resurfaced by way of phone call to Dusty, claiming to be in Bora Bora and that he was having nightmares. After the break Scooter Sparks, the announcer also complained of having nightmares. Roland Hard, Kai and Blood Rage had a match that saw the beginings of a brutal feud between Kai and Blood Rage. Crippler Bret Steele who thought he had the night off was told he would face Lil’ Tokyo at the next PPV but that he had a match tonight against Damien Genesis. Yojimbo and Mentalo had a match that saw Lil Tokyo help her new friend Mentalo take the win against the leader of Black Sun. Two new teams, Hass Machina and The Blue Unicorns faced off with Hass Machina winning. Steele won his World Title match against Damien Genesis. Corporal Punishment’s daughter, Major Punishment went against Barb Wire of the Hellcats. The match ended as many of the Hellcats matches do, with them attemtping to take Major Punishment out of the wrestling business.

Event: Resurrection PPV:
We begin OCW’s second PPV with Margharita claiming to Dusty she deserves to be in the title hunt due to some impressive victories she had been accumulating. Dusty books her in a return “falls count anywhere” match with Spartan, but because only two people speak Spanish in the OCW but Margharita, she was able to convince Los Security to interfere and they beat Spartan down sending him back onto the injured list. The Narcoleptic Assassin made his debut and took a nap in the ring. Tobais Jorum, a white bread vanilla wrestler repackaged himself as “TJ Danger” an extreme high flyer to keep his job and prove his worth to Dusty. The Balck Widows debuted along with The Live Wires and Trailer Park Stevens teamed with his wife Sally Mae as all took part in a Tag Team Battle Royal. Before the battle royal the Hangmen were attacked by a new team, “The Union Jacks” who bore a striking physcial resemblence to The British Bluebloods (but The Jacks wear masks and are managed by a punker named Black Alice). The Union Jacks went on to win the battle royal and $10,000. A helmeted figure showed up and began a reign of torment over TJ Danger. Two new wrestlers went head to head, “Angel” a white bodysuit-clad masked wrestler fighting the “good fight” faced off against “Sickbag” a demented grappler with Angel taking the win via DQ. Mentalo won a triple threat match with Roland Hard and Primetime Muprhy to battle for the TV Title. Kai defeated Blood Rage in an Inferno Match but both suffered when Blood Rage charged the ring while on fire and bearhugged Kai. Firefighters put them both out but when the smoke cleared (literally) Blood Rage had disappeared. Lil Tokyo defeated Crippler Bret Steele to win the OCW World Title via submission. In the co-main event Corporal & Major Punishment went up against the Hellcats. The Hellcats won when they locked Major in the “Devils Toybox” a cage they are brought to the ring in and brutalized Corporal Punishment in the ring. Major could do nothing but sit by and watch as her father was destroyed in the ring.

Corporal Punishment, after being hospitalized was replaced at the commentating table by Trailer Park Stevens. Angel continued her winning ways while Kai went against newcomer John Crazyhorse and won by DQ when Blood Rage intereferd. Kai beat down Blood Rage and unmasked him to reveal- Buck Leeds. We learn Narcoleptic Assassin was the son of a friend of David Diamonds and has an iron clad contract to compete- a contract David Diamond lost in a poker game a while back. In a “Best of Three Falls” match, the Hangmen lost to the OCW World Tag Team Champions The Hellcats when Anarchy of the Union Jacks intereferd and cost The Hangmen the titles. Primetime and Sergei(The Allies) keep up with some singles matches giving rise to specualtion there is a rift between them.

Lil Tokyo challenges Crimson Mask to a non-title Bushido match which she wins, continuing her undefeated streak.
