Kevin George Ward (born March 16, 1986) is an American professional wrestler best known for his time with International Wrestling Entertainment (IWE) where he wrestled on its Meltdown and Fusion brands under the ring names Kevin and Kevin Ward.

Ward was trained by former professional wrestler Killer Kowalski, and made his wrestling debut at the age of fifteen in 2001. He began working for Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW), per IWE request. In May 2003, Ward made his IWE television debut as "Kevin Phoenix". During his time in OVW, he won the Television Championship once. After losing the title, Doane became part of the Spirit Squad faction. The team debuted on Raw in January 2006, and won the World Tag Team Championship three months later.

Following the split of the Spirit Squad, Ward was the only member to remain on IWE television. He debuted to a new ring name "Kevin Ward". In June 2007, he was drafted to the Fusion! brand, but was released from his IWE contract in November 2008. He later began working on the independent circuit, wrestling for promotions including Dragon Gate USA and Evolve.
