Best job I’ve EVER had.

I have to say, every Monday night I am blessed to have the best job that could ever have dreamed of.  I work as a wrestling commentator for the television channel Eurosport here in Finland, alongside Robert Holmström, for This Week in WWE and WWE’s blast-from-the-past program, Vintage Collection.  I basically get paid for flapping my gums and breathing.  Honestly, since it’s professional wrestling and I am a part of the business myself as an active wrestler globally, this job is not only a no-brainer for me, it is also the most laid-back, fun job I have EVER had in my near-39 years.

Our mugs say it all: FUN, FUN, FUN!!!

I was approached back in early February 2009 by the Finnish Eurosport office out of the blue to do commentary for their starting WWE broadcasts.  They told me I was the only wrestler in Finland that they were aware of, since I had been in tons of Finnish medias across the board for many years by then, so I kind of landed the job by proxy.  Eurosport believed in the tandem commentary duo dynamic, and asked if I knew of someone who could be a credible sidekick/co-commentator.  I was able to vouche for Robert at that time, and he took up the offer with open arms.  I dare say that Robert and I have since become the preeminent commentary team on Finnish TV for any – and I mean ANY – broadcast sent out on Finnish television today.  Our viewer feedback alone supports that statement.

Hey, it's Robert Holmström's favorite WWE Diva, AJ!

So here’s to Eurosport Finland, the BEST workplace a Canadian Rebel could have outside of being in the ring myself!  Not too many people can say that they look forward to going to work on Mondays, yet I can honestly say I do.

And believe me when I tell you, this blog text isn’t shameless ass-kissing, it’s the truth — as God Himself is my witness!
