On OVW Tv Episode #638, Espinosa vandalized Paredyse's locker room and wrote on the mirror "Go Home, Queen!" On OVW Tv Episode #639, after his victory over Ace Hawkins, Espinosa walked into his locker room to see that Paredyse returned the favor, writing "I'M HERE, I'M QUEER, GET USED TO IT" on his locker. For the next several weeks, Espinosa and Paredyse would come out and commentate each other's matches leading to a couple confrontations, including Paredyse kissing Brandon twice. On OVW Tv Episode #644, Paredyse was celebrating his crowning as King, or Queen as Paredyse insisted on, of Clarkesville and was abruptly interrupted by Espinosa. Espinosa was insulted by Paredyse's changing of the title to a feminine name. This led to their first on screen, in ring encounter that ended with Espinosa attacking Paredyse from behind. On OVW Tv Episode #645, Paredyse challenged Espinosa to a match at the January 7th, 2012 Saturday Night Special and on OVW Tv Episode #646, Espinosa accepted the challenge during the "A Moment in Paredyse" segment.

Following the Saturday Night Special, Espinosa has begun to put a dress on his beaten opponents and put make-up on their face while taunting Paredyse, as seen on OVW TV Episode #649. At the February 4th Saturday Night Special, Espinosa subbed in for Rob Terry to team with the Mascagni Family to take on Jason Wayne, Shiloh Jonze, Johnny Spade, and Paredyse in the Main Event 8 Man Elimination Tag Match. The Mascagni Family and Espinosa lost the match but beat down their opponents and left them there to end the show. On OVW TV Episode #652, Espinosa was once again the guest on "A Moment in Paredyse" but instead of answering Paredyse's questions, he offered him to be the first guest on his talk show, "Straight Talk" the following week. On OVW TV Episode #653, alongside long time friend, "Chris," Espinosa had Paredyse as his first guest on "Straight Talk." The segment ended with Espinosa beating down Paredyse and putting him in a dress and make-up. With the help of "Chris," Espinosa defeated Paredyse in a Dress on a Pole match at the March 3rd Saturday Night Special.

After defeating Paredyse and forcing him to wear the dress, Paredyse actually enjoyed it, as seen on OVW TV Episode #656, and continued to wear it on the weeks to come. This led to Paredyse being a guest once again on "Straight Talk" on OVW TV Episode #657. On OVW TV Episode #658, Espinosa was a guest on "A Moment in Paredyse" where Paredyse revealed he may have a video of Espinosa in compromising situations. This set up a match for the April 7th Saturday Night Special where if Paredyse won, he got to show the video and if Espinosa won, the video would just "disappear." Ultimately, Espinosa lost the match and the video aired on OVW TV Episode #660. For the next few weeks, Espinosa and Paredyse kept antagonizing one another and on OVW Tv Episode #667 it was announced that they would have an "I Quit / I Admit" match at the June 2 Saturday Night Special. Espinosa lost the match after admitting to his lies.
