she wanted to “do this on my own”. Allysin DEMANDS the match be
restarted. Allysin nails Chest Flexxor and one of his henchman. Mr
Wadsworth is out and says Mia/Allysin 3 will be held at Absolution. No
outside interference. Looks like Mia and Allysin have some mutal
respect now and I guess this makes Allysin a babyface in AIW. Match
was about 10 minutes or so, but really fun and a nice way to end the
night. Not quite sure about having Allysin all of a sudden be the
honorable babyface so quickly though.
Note: Crowd was around 100+ or so. The crowd was not into some of the
earlier match and sat on their hands, but the death match stuff def
pumped them up. Very fun show with a good atmosphere. Hailey and Rose
really put on the best match of the night which was also the longest
match by far. This show was much better than GNO5.
