OVWmania's Superstar Spotlight: Jamin Olivencia

This is the final Superstar Spotlight for the month of December. Starting in 2013, I will be cutting back to 1 or 2 per month. The weekly Spotlights for December were done as an introductory experiment.

OVW Television Champion
From: Buffalo, NY
Height: 5'9" Weight: 210 lbs.

Trained by the legendary Rip Rogers and the amazing staff at OVW, Jamin Olivencia has been wrestling since he was 17 years old. He started with OVW in 2005, but on August 1, 2007, he teamed with T.J. Dalton to win his first title as he captured the OVW Southern Tag Team Championships from the James Boys (Kassidy and K.C. James). More impressively, he has won the OVW Television Title a record 8 times. He was the first TV Champion following the end of the WWE-OVW relationship, and is currently the OVW TV Champion. He has defeated several tough opponents including former WWE superstar James Curtis, Rudy Switchblade, Mike Mondo, Paredyse, Mohamad Ali Vaez, and most recently Joe Coleman.

He has appeared in other promotions over the years like WWE, wrestling on Sunday Night Heat and Superstars, and appearing as a man in white alongside fellow OVW superstar Dylan Bostic to take Daniel Bryan to a mental health institute on an episode of RAW. He has also worked a dark match for TNA against Stevie Richards and appeared in ROH against Mike Bennett. Jamin has also branched out beyond the ring. He has appeared in "The Elaborate Entrance of Chad Deity" at both the Actor's Theatre in Louisville and the Dallas Theater Center, where he acted in and choreographed most of the wrestling scenes. He was also cast on the 4th season of the Oxygen reality show Love Games.

He was ranked at #454 in the 2012 PWI Top 500. Jamin finishes most of his opponents off with the Standing O, a jumping guillotine DDT. Jamin deserves a "Standing O" for all his accomplishments so far, but with 10 years of experience at the age of 27, Jamin is only going to get better with time.
