Ohio Versus Everything (OVE, stylized as oVe) was an American professional wrestling stable that consisted primarily of Sami Callihan, Dave Crist, Jake Crist, and Madman Fulton.

The group's name is based on all four members hailing from the state of Ohio - the Crist Brothers are from New Carlisle (billed from nearby Dayton), Callihan is from Bellefontaine (West Central Ohio), and Fulton is from Toledo.

On the independent circuit, Callihan and the Crist Brothers worked together under the name Ohio Is For Killers (OI4K), which is a play on the song Ohio Is for Lovers.
