The Ascension was a professional wrestling tag team, consisting of Conor O'Brian and Kenneth Cameron. The Ascension started out as a stable which also had Ricardo Rodriguez, Tito Colon, and Raquel Diaz. In March the Ascension became a tag team after O'Brian returned from injury while the other three members disbanded from the Ascension.

History

Florida Championship Wrestling (2011-2012)

On August 28, 2011, Ricardo Rodriguez announced the formation of a stable called The Ascension, with members including Kenneth Cameron, Conor O'Brian, Tito Colon, and Raquel Diaz.[1] The first match to include all members in some capacity came on September 1, 2011, and saw Cameron, Colon and O’Brian, accompanied by Diaz, defeating CJ Parker, Donny Marlow and Johnny Curtis.[2] On September 30, Cameron and Colon had a shot at the FCW Tag Team Championship but lost to the current champions of CJ Parker and Donny Marlow. By October, however, the Ascension was no longer associated with Rodriguez, as video packages promoting the Ascension in a new darker gimmick only featured the other four Ascension members without Rodriguez. By the end of November the Ascension had all but disbanded because O'Brian was injured, Colon had been called up to WWE to team with his cousin Primo, and Diaz became Queen of FCW and distanced herself from the group. This left Cameron as the sole survivor of the Ascension, as he continued to use the Ascension gimmick and be referred to as an Ascension member during his appearances. This turn of events would prove to be beneficial for Cameron as he would go onto a three month singles winning streak beating the likes of Jiro and Calvin Raines until he finally lost to Colin Cassady on February 23, 2012.

On March 15, 2012, Cameron was accompanied to the ring by the returning Conor O'Brian in his match against Byron Saxton; the match ended in disqualification when the lights went out and O'Brian interfered. Cameron and O'Brian began wrestling as a tag team using the Ascension name, and their first tag team match together came on March 23 when the two defeated Jason Jordan and Xavier Woods. The Ascension suffered their first loss when the pair lost to the FCW Tag Team Champions, Corey Graves and Jake Carter, in a title bout.[3]

NXT (2012)

The Ascension debuted on the first episode of the sixth season of WWE NXT taped at Full Sail University, where they defeated Mike Dalton and CJ Parker.[4] The Ascension then started a feud with the Usos on the August 15 episode of NXT, with a match between the two tag teams ending in the Ascension being disqualified; the Ascension then conducted a post-match attack on the Usos.[5] On the August 29 episode of NXT, the Usos called out the Ascension, but the Ascension ambushed the Usos and again delivered a beatdown.[6] On the September 5 episode of NXT, the Ascension defeated the Usos.[7] On the September 5 episode of NXT, the Ascension defeated the Usos.[8] The Ascension would then team up with Kassius Ohno to defeat the team of the Usos and Richie Steamboat on the October 17 episode of NXT.[9]

The Ascension disbanded on November 30, 2012 when Cameron was released from WWE.[10]
