My next SMASH Championship defense in Norway

Yesterday, Norway’s NWF (Norwegian Wrestling Federation) announced that their country’s pro wrestling pioneer “The Icon” Erik Isaksen will challenge me for the SMASH Championship on Saturday, November 12 at PowerSLAM IX in Oslo.

Back between 2003 – 2005, Isaksen and I engaged in a vicious and bloody feud that spanned over three countries, as we waged war over gold and honor in Finland, Norway and Italy.  What really spurred our vitriol was the fact that Erik broke my left ankle in an August 2003 match in Norway, fracturing the tibia and fibula bones so that the doctors had to use eight screws and three metal plates to reconstruct the damage.

During our feud, I won the IWS Intercontinental Championship from Isaksen in the summer of 2005, only to lose it back to him in a No Holds Barred match in Oslo a week later.  That latter match still stands as one of the top 10 matches of both of our careers.

Now in 2011, both Erik and I are older, wiser and there is no more bad blood between us.  Our issue was laid to rest many years ago, but there is a distinct possibility that this coming Saturday at PowerSLAM IX in Oslo the bad blood will resurface as Isaksen tries to wrestle the SMASH Championship away from me.  The SMASH Championship is my pride and glory, the highest achievement of my career, and I do not plan on losing to Isaksen, no matter how talented and capable he is as a professional wrestler and challenger.

I am going into Oslo this coming Saturday expecting the hardest fight that Erik Isaksen has within his bones.  Anything less would not be worthy of the SMASH Championship.
