Epic match coming to Kuopio, Finland

Posted: March 5, 2011 in Professional Wrestling

For the first time in Finnish wrestling history, the central city of Kuopio will host FCF Wrestling at Hotel Rauhalahti on Sunday, April 3, 2011.

I personally am waiting with great anticipation for this card, as I will be head-to-head for the first time in a long time against Finnish wrestling veteran, Stark Adder.  Hailing from Talaskangas in the Savo province of Finland which Kuopio also belongs to, Adder is a former Finnish Champion himself and for all intents and purposes has served as the main instructor at FCF’s wrestling school for the past few years.  Adder is adept at the technical aspects of the game, and he and I have waged some incredible matches in the annals of Finnish wrestling history over the years.

It was Adder who defeated me back on May 26, 2006 to begin his reign as Finnish Champion, which ended one year later to the day, when he lost the title to Erik Isaksen of Norway.  Many fans in Finland remember the incredible set of matches that I had with Adder in 2005-2006, which also elevated Adder to becoming a main player in Finland.  Those matches also gave Adder viability in the European wrestling scene, and he went on to wrestle in countries like Italy, Estonia, Sweden, Norway, UK and even Japan.

Wrestling fans in and around Kuopio, Finland can get ready for another classic once Savon Selkäsauna rolls around on April 3rd!
