Here is a Free iPPV from AAW
My review of that free iPPV is HERE
Recap from TJ Hawke:
Faith was Rickey Shane Page under a mask. Page still worked as Faith in AAW even after he was unamasked in AIW. I wish AAW booked Page/Faith more often. He and Gregory Iron made for a really good team at War is Coming 2011. This is my first time seeing Johnny Wave. Xion hadn’t been signed by TNA yet. Shane Hollister had just lost the AAW Heritage Title last month, so he was looking for a bounce back win. Research~!
Hollister and Xion did a nice sequence to start the match. Hollister hit a spinning heel kick that caused Xion to roll to the outside. Wave came in and ate a tilt-a-whirl backbreaker. Wave sent Hollister to the floor with a headscissors. Faith tagged in. Faith hit Wave with a World’s Strongest Slam and Xion with a powerbomb…simultaneously. Faith then overpowered Hollister. Xion tried to crucifix bomb Faith, but it didn’t work until Wave hit a missile dropkick. Wave hit Xion with Paydirt. All four men traded some big moves and kicks until all four men were down. The crowd popped huge. Hollister and Faith ended up on the top rope. Faith sent Hollister to the mat and hit a senton atomico. Faith then wiped out Xion with a somersault plancha. Faith then hit Wave with a Samoan Drop variation on Wave: 1…2…Xion makes the save! Hollister hit Faith with a DDT and Xion with a Mic Check simultaneously. Xion hit Wave with a flipping facebuster on his knee. Weird move. Wave hit Faith with a tornado DDT and then a Phoenix Splash (he kind of connected on it). Hollister gave Wave a buzzsaw kick and a brainbuster: 1…2…3
The ending was anti-climatic, but everything before that was a lot of fun. Hollister getting the win made sense, since he was the most regular roster member. Faith should be a regular in AAW. Since Xion is in TNA now, I understand why AAW hasn’t made the effort to bring him back. I couldn’t find a record of Wave returning to AAW, but he seemed fine here.
Sidenote: Shane Douglas was on commentary and he really seemed to be trying his hardest to put everyone over. I’ve read about a lot ECW and Billy Corgan bullshit on this show, but Douglas reportedly tried very hard.
