The Last Minute

Wrestling is something that Aspen Faith always wanted to do. As a child he watched the WWE and fell in love with the over the top characters, his favourite being Chris Jericho then as a teen he started watching The Wrestling Channel and became a fan of the original World of Sport. Nowadays if Faith watches anything wrestling related he tends to watch World of Sport or Pro Wrestling Guerilla (which he admits is completely different).
Faith was such a fan of the WoS “catch style” that when he became a professional wrestler a in he incorporated it into his repertoire of moves. Since his debut back in 2011 Faith has developed a reputation as someone who is able to put on great matches with a variety of different opponents as a singles and tag team performer. He credits his early progression to Crusher Craib who he told me “is genuinely one if the best big men in the country”.
In 2014 Faith moved and had to find a new training school and it was at this point that he started training under Big Damo at the SWA Academy. Given the talent that has emerged from that school in recent times the change of location definitely hasn’t hurt Faith and he has improved himself inside the ring as well as also raising his standing and reputation.
In 2016 Aspen started teaming alongside his friend and training partner Lewis Girvan and since then the “Kings of Catch” have started to establish themselves as one of the best tag teams around. When I caught up with Faith it was at an Absolute Wrestling event where he took on Lou King Sharp & Kieran Mccolm (available here) and he told me that most of his current goals in wrestling are tag team related as he would like to continue tagging with ‘The Best Young Wrestler In The World’ and continue showing off their undeniable talent up and down the country.
Despite his intention to focus on tag team wrestling that doesn’t prevent Aspin Faith from being able to put on great solo matches which he showed at a Discovery Wrestling show in March when he had a brilliant match with ‘The Ambassador’ Doug Williams (available here). When putting together this profile I took in several Aspen Faith matches via YouTube and genuinely didn’t find a bad one. With this in mind I would definitely recommend you check him out if you see him at a show near you.
As always I would like to thank Aspen for taking the time to speak to me and on behalf of myself and the entire Calling Spots team I would like to wish him the best of luck for the future.

As Chris Jericho was Faith’s favourite when he was growing up he told me that if he could wrestle anyone from wrestling history he would love to wrestle him. He also told me that he would like to work with Chris Hero as he is a huge fan of his.
Faith’s choice in hairstyle is a tribute to one of his favourite musicians, Willie Nelson.
