Tempers flared following the OCW Championship Match in Zanesville on Saturday night between champion Robby Starr and challenger Sherman Tank.
Throughout the match Robby Starr used shortcuts to finish the contest, but Tank was relentless and wouldn't stay down. Finally in a fit of desperation, Starr ordered "No Shame" Jimmy Shane to wedge a chair in the corner between the ropes to finish Tank off. Tank reversed the effort and sent Robby torpedoing through the chair. Filling in for the injured Senior Official Keith Smith, Jake Clemons slid in to make the 3 count, declaring Tank the New OCW Champion. Unfortunately for Tank, Keith Smith, who was injured earlier in the match saw Tank throw Robby through the chair and disqualified him. Thus awarding the match and the OCW Title to Robby Starr.
A frustrated Tank would not release the belt to Keith Smith no matter how much both officials pleaded with him that it was the right thing to do. Tank then did the unthinkable and struck Keith Smith and began to maul the unconscious official until the voice of OCW, John Orlando grabbed Tank trying to get him off Smith. Tank then turned his attention to Orlando and threatened him in the corner until "Big Guns" Jeff Cannon came out to calm Tank down. Tank and the OCW fans in attendance, who were chanting and banging on the barriers, just wanted justice.
Word has come down that Tank has been fined 6 months pay for the attacks on Smith and Orlando and must issue a public apology.
