<![CDATA[OHIO CHAMPIONSHIP WRESTLING - News]]>Tue, 15 Aug 2017 22:16:30 -0400Weebly<![CDATA[OCW Women's Championship.... Reborn.]]>Wed, 16 Aug 2017 01:21:10 GMThttp://ocwrestling.net/news/ocw-womens-championship-reborn5456225
It has been 5 long years since OCW had a Women's Champion. The first champion was Impact Wrestling's Madison Rayne before she was Madison Rayne. The last champion, "The Death Rey" Sara Del Rey, is currently a trainer at the WWE Peformance Center in Orlando, Florida.

​Well on Saturday Night, August 26th, 1 of the 8 young ladies have the opportunity to place her name next to the previous champions. When you look at the competitors they all have a different look, they all have a different style, and even experience levels. Their diversity is what we sought out for this tournament. We wanted women that everyone could relate to or even idolize  in one way or another.

​One fact remains there is one thing that all 8 women share... and that is they want to walk away as the New OCW Women's Champion and build herself an empire. A new queen will be crowned on Saturday, August 2th at the OCW Arena!
