OTT’s women’s division eventually hit a stride, but Joe Cabray admits the company got off to a rough start in 2016.
Andrew Thompson of POST Wrestling sat down with Cabray, the founder and owner of OTT, before the #SpeakingOut movement took aim at notable members of his roster.
During the interview, they discussed his hopes to add prestige to OTT’s women’s division.
“Yeah, I think we wanna make all our titles mean something. To be honest with you, I think people would agree, our women’s division was a bit of struggle starting off. I just didn’t want to put on a women’s division that just wasn’t to the standard of what OTT has become. So, I think the last two years, we’ve really worked hard on trying to get the women’s title to the standard of the men’s title. I always say it, every year we run a show called Defiant and it’s my favorite show of the year. It’s our all-women’s event and I just love it. I think it’s just… again, just really good energy. The locker room when Defiant — the fans are rabid for it as well, but it’s still gonna be a key of trying to get our women’s title as strong as possible and one day I hope that our women’s championship will essentially headline a major show for us. That’s kinda like the goal at some point.”
OTT has been building up Amy Allonsy up to be Sammii Jayne‘s next challenger for the women’s championship. Cabray explained why Allonsy could be their next big thing.
“We still wanna do the Amy Allonsy match. So, hopefully, we’ll be able to get it done. Amy Allonsy and Sammii Jayne. That was a match that, speaking of women’s wrestling, and watch out for Amy Allonsy. I think she’s going to be one of the next big things in female wrestling. She just gets it. Things just snap into place for her and she’s just amazing. Again, great person as well to be around but works her ass off as well so, she’s gonna be one of the next, I think, one of the next proud exports of Irish wrestling so watch out for Amy Allonsy as well.”
