Before The OUW

Before entering The OUW,Devon Poole was trained to wrestle at the Santos Family's Wrestling Gym in Philadelphia,PA,and "The Asylum" in Manhattan,NY from age 13.With his Submission Wrestling experience,he hoped to be an Mixed Martial Artist.At the Age of 17,just a few days before his 18th birthday,Poole fought in his first MMA Fight,which resulted in a Submission victory.He fought later on a day after his 18th birthday,a KO win.He seemed to be on the fast track to MMA success,but Poole wanted to be a Wrestler that much more.Poole was signed to and Wrestled in A Major Wrestling Promotion Based in Connecticut,The World's Wrasslin' Federation between July 1998 and June 2002,winning many Championships while in that company.He Was Released due to a Bad Attitude,and Signed with a local Wrestling promotion based in Nashville,TN,Called TEnnesee Non-Stop Action Wrestling in 2002.Just a Few Months Later,due to falling outs with the management,he was released in November 2002 only to return to the WWF,Now called the WWE(World's Wrasslin Entertainment) by early December of 2002.He Was Released yet again,this time due to Falling outs with Some members of the Management.Poole then later performing in many well-known Indy Wrestling promotions across the tri-state area from January 2005 until April of 2005.In March 2005,a new Major Wrestling promotion would flourish:One Up Wrestling,also well known as The OUW.As Devon walked out of "The Asylum" one Day,OUW's Former General Manager,Gavin "Snake" Steele,would Approach him with an OUW Contract.Devon Quickly Signed the Contract,and the rest was history.

The Beginning in the OUW

Devon Poole debuted in the OUW in April 2005.He Was Quickly given a CHampionship match in his first match.In his first match,he fought for the now defunct OUW Heavyweight Championship,the Former Top Championship an OUW Superstar can hold.He fought the Then-Champion Gamr,Who is now retired and is the Current owner and General Manager of OUW,in a Brutal Brawl that almost saw DG win the championship,but he fell short and lost the match.He would lose some matches and win some matches.But,that all changed after OUW culmination 2005...

As Culmination Ended,A Rival Wrestling promotion from Hartford,CT flourished:The united Wrestling alliance,Also known to the world as the uWa.The uWa(Originally formed by Avenger,Sgt.America,Billy Hill,Psyclone,Hollywood Jayson,and Hunter,as well as other members of the now defunct uWa roster) would Try to invade the OUW Arena and Randomly attack OUW's Wrestlers.While the rest of the OUW didn't like it,Michael Jason "Plat" King Seemingly did,as he became the OUW's New Co-General Manager and Teamed up with The uWa as they began to harass and attack the OUW Roster.He Defeated Plat and other uWa members,depsite All of the ambush attacks.Devon later joined OUW faction "Most wanted" and Became OUW intercotinental champion at Turmoil 2005.He would hold the gold for two months,until he lost it to X at OUW Ascention 2006.

As Ascention Ended,ATHF,Leader of "OUW's Most Wanted",an OUW stable which included the likes of ATHF,Sonic, and others,ended the Faction.He Then Turned on an Injured Devon Poole,saying Harsh words about him,quickly turning him into a heel.Devon Then Returned to face ATHF in a match for OUW's Most Wanted's Contract.Devon won Via Submission,and Won the contract as well.

After A few Run-ins with Plat,Devon Poole fought the former OUW owner for the US title at OUW's "The Paramount" PPV.Though he fought with effort,Just like the other times he's fought for the US Gold,he came up short after Plat Knocked him out with the US title and covered him for the victory.But,Those two wouldn't stop there.After Devon Poole won a #1 contender's match for the OUW Heavyweight Championship against Scorpion,Coz,and Xavier "X" Williams,He and Plat were once again at odds.Following a Submission Victory against plat at uWa's Finality PPV,and a loss in a three-on-one Handicap match fighting against Psyclone,scorpion,and Plat Himself,Devon and Plat Fought once again at OUW's "Massacre" Pay-Per-View.With Poole winning the match after interference from Plat's Older Brother,Micheal "BDS" Sweet,Devon's Feud With Plat was Finished..and his feud with Gamr had Just begun...

The OUW Heavyweight & Tag Team Championships,Reality Inc,and the OUW's closing

After his Feud with Plat,Plat's Then-Partner and Co-OUW Tag Team Champion,Gamr,Began Sneak Attacking Devon before their big OUW Heavyweight Championship match at OUW's "Revolution" PPV.At The PPV,Devon Poole Used a Roll-Up Pin To Secure a Spot in OUW History as It's Heavyweight Champion.The NExt Sunday at Storm,Devon and his partner BDS,fought against Gamr and Plat for the OUW tag Team Championships.While it looked like Gamr and Plat had the match won,Gamr Turned on his Friend and Tag Team Partner,Costing Both Men The Tag Team Championships as BDS pinned Plat and won the titles for himself and Poole.Gamr then Pinned Plat to become the OUW's World Champion.Later that Week,BDS officially retired himself from the tag team division,which left Devon to hold not only the Heavyweight title,but both of The Tag Titles as Well.With this in mind,Defending the OUW Heavyweight Championship at OUW's "Syndication" Pay-Per-View was hard to do.But Unfortunately,Plat Pinning Gamr in triple threat costed Poole his heavyweight Championship.

But,little did we know,that Poole had a back-up plan.After a loss to Coz and a break from wrestling for a few weeks,Devon Poole announced the formation of "Reality Inc.",the Stable That Included himself,His former manager/friend Stephanie smith,and former OUW FTR Champion Jasper "Dark" Griffin.As Soon as reality Inc.Formed,Dark was awarded with the OUW Tag Team title that BDS Left Behind.The Group then rebelled against Plat and other OUW Superstars as they then Ran in on another Group:CardYnal sYn,a group formed by Gamr,Scorpion,and Scorpion's Wife,Rachel.As Devon answered a Challenge by his Old Wrestling Rival Scorpion,The OUW announced that it was closing Down.That next Sunday on July 28t,2006,Reality Inc. Retired the OUW Tag Team Championships as The Champions as they successfully defended the Championships against the team of Crow and Defias.

The next week,Poole fought Jack in a "Cage Of Death" For The NCW International Gold.The Match Consisted of a Sealing over the Top of the Steel Cage Structure,Meaning that you cant escape,and that the only way to win were by pinfall or submission.Even Though Poole put up a Great Fight,Jack Picked up the Victory after a Frog Splash from the Turnbuckle.The Following Week,at MNV,The Two Squared off Again,this time in a TLC Match For the Title.Despite Outside Interference From Jack's Girlfriend Zachary,and Thanks to help from NCW Executive Assistant Maria Santos,Poole Defeated Jack and Won The international Championship from him.The NExt Day,Devon Poole Demolished The Original NCW international Title Belt and created a New NCW international Championship Belt,which is modeled similar The World Wrestling Entertainment's Intercontinental Championship.
