Over The Top Wrestling, commonly abbreviated to OTT, is an Irish wrestling promotion based in Dublin, Ireland and was founded in 2014.[1] The promotion mixes elements of traditional pro wrestling, comedy and sports entertainment.[2] Over The Top Wrestling showcases the best Irish talent and also brings in renowned stars from overseas.[3][4] Shows typically took place in Dublin's Tivoli Theatre until its demise, [5] "The Arena" at Good Counsel GAA club on Suir Road and in Belfast, Northern Ireland at Queen's University or at the Europa Hotel. OTT also runs shows from the National Basketball Arena in Dublin. Special 'Supershows' occur at the National Stadium periodically. 'Contenders' billed shows featuring up and coming local talent are run from the National Stadium's Ringside Club.

History[edit]

Founded in 2014 as an alternative to the family friendly offerings on the Irish wrestling scene at the time, OTT was aimed at an over 18s audience with the intention of giving adult wrestling fans something grittier to enjoy, with a shift away from a PG product. Initially the show focused mainly on Irish talent, with gimmicks relating to Irish culture such as the Traveller influenced Luther Ward and the Ward Family, "Session Moth" Martina, the working class-styled Lads from the Flats and the elitist "Lord of The Manor" Paul Tracey. The show was initially composed of wrestlers trained by Main Stage Wrestling and Fight Factory training schools. As the promotion evolved it attracted more renowned stars from abroad and now boasts a vibrant mix of Irish and international talent.

Contenders[edit]

OTT Contenders was launched on in May 2017. The idea for these shows was to give up-and-coming Irish talent a platform to perform on as a proving ground. An initial seminar was advertised for an opportunity to perform on the first OTT Contenders show in The Ringside Club of the National Stadium. Hundreds of hopeful applicants from across the country applied to take part but only a handful were picked for the seminar. From those participants, the numbers were further narrowed down to only the best performers. These chosen few perform on the Contenders shows in conjunction with established talent. People who perform well on Contenders are often given an opportunity on the main show, as has been seen with Club Tropicana (Captain Sexsea and Aidan) More Than Hype (LJ Cleary, Nathan Martin and Darren Kearney) and Legit 100 (Scotty Davis, Curtis Murray and Micheal May).
