For 11 years the ‘Australian Sensation’ Craven has walked into AAW’s biggest show of the year; Anniversary, delivered match of year candidates and left undefeated. Anniversary XI was no different, although the 2017 edition of AAW’s biggest annual event would prove to be Craven’s toughest challenge to date as he took on one of the worlds best cruiserweights Mr 450!
450 had his sights on AAW as the sight of his return from surgery after a stela year that saw him appear on WWE’s NXT and 205 Live as well as taking on the worlds best Luchadores such as Rey Mysterio and Ricochet. All who have crossed The Mecha Wolf know that if he hits his signature 450 Splash it spelled the end.
Craven, who has defeated the likes of Orlando Jordan, Chavo Guerrero and Mr Kennedy at AAW Anniversary events would be forced to innovate if he hoped to be victorious. The match was a technical and high-flying masterpiece that included, flips, dives and even a running Canadian Destroyer!
In the end the legend of the ‘Australian Sensation’ grew as Craven dove from the top rope, bringing his Swanton Squad to their feet as he scored the 1-2-3.
