Here we are with the newest installment of OCW Spotlight as we take a look at Juice Jennings! Since 2011, Juice Jennings has been a very exciting member of the OCW roster. Right off the bat, Juice began to mix it up with top names in OCW such as Jeremy Madrox, Kaden Assad, Jock Samson, among many others! But when Juice Jennings formed an alliance and tag team with Joey Vengeance, we watched as the two of them became the longest reigning Tag Team Champions in OCW history. But at "Tradition 12" we all were beyond shocked when Juice cost Joey Vengeance the OCW Heavyweight Championship by assaulting his long time friend with a steel chair! What will this path hold in store for Jennings? We reached out to the man now referring to himself as "Agent Orange" to ask him a few questions.
What has been your favorite match in OCW so far?
JJ: It's impossible to narrow it down to an individual match. One would definitely be OCW: War Games 2011 when I teamed with Jeff Cannon and Joey Vengeance. It was after that match that Joey and I decided to form a tag team. Another would be our first OCW Tag Team Title victory at "Luck of the Draw" 2012. Pretty much any of our tag matches against the Heat Seekers were pretty amazing as well. I've had a few singles outings that stood out, but I've pretty much made the tag scene my focus these last few years in OCW. It's too bad my partner couldn't do the same.
If you could pick one match against anyone on the OCW roster past or present what would it be?
JJ: Probably myself and Joey Vengeance vs The Hi-Def Supernovas - Robby Starr and Matt Mason. We came in right after The Novas broke up, so I can only imagine what that match could have been like.
At "Tradition 12" you shocked us all by betraying your long time tag team partner and friend, Joey Vengeance. Can you give us a little insight into what cause you to do this?
JJ: I find it funny that you chose to word your question like that. I didn't betray anyone. I wasn't the one who turned my back on my partner. I wasn't the one who put my singles career ahead of regaining our Tag Team Titles. There was so much more that I wanted to accomplish in the tag division in OCW and throughout the independent scene, but that option was taken off the table by my selfish teammate. I was the heart and soul of that team. I was the workhorse who put forth all of the effort while Joey Vengeance took all of the attention and all of the glory. Joey turned his back on me and what I did at the end of "Tradition 12" was nothing more than a response to that.
What is next for Juice Jennings?
JJ: For the first time in a long time, I feel completely free to reach my true potential. Nobody is holding me back any longer and it's time for me to not only reach my goals, but surpass them.
Is there anything you would like to say to the OCW fans?
JJ: The fans have bought into Joey's sob story and have ran to his defense while labeling me a traitor. I realize now, that I'm all on my own because by supporting Joey Vengeance, the OCW fans have all stabbed me in the back. They can believe what they want to believe. They can hate me if they want to hate me. I don't need to be liked to get to the top and that's exactly where I'm going.
