In one week’s time from tonight, I will have fought one of the most important matches of my professional wrestling life: I will have avenged the assaults perpetrated on my wife over the past month and a half.

For anyone who isn’t wary of the incidents that I am referring to, my wife Diana fell prey to the actions of a wrestler in Finland named Valentine.

Wife and I

The first incident happened on March 23 in Helsinki at FCF Wrestling‘s DOMination 8: Gods of the North event.  It was on that eve that I filled in for an injured English wrestling veteran named Robbie Brookside, whose knees were on the fritz, as the challenger for Valentine’s BWA (British Wrestling Alliance) Catchweight Championship title.  For anyone who needs to be refreshed on the altercation at the aforementioned event, read my blog about the whole mess HERE.

Very simply put, I have more than a personal agenda riding on the line at FCF Wrestling’s Jatkosota 2013 event on May 11 in Espoo, right next to where I live: I have to defend my spouse’s honor.  There are few ways that prove more effective to incite the literal wrath of Hell than to abuse another person’s family member.  Valentine physically laying his hands on my woman – not once, but twice – warrants the kind of receipt that is rarely dealt out under professional circumstances in any business.

The second incident in question took place at the end of last month, when my Eurosport co-host Robert Holmström held a candid, sit-down interview with both Valentine and I.  Well, the initial gameplan was exactly that: Two, separate sit-down interviews with both Valentine, to express the motives behind his actions, and with my wife and I, to retort to the altercation at DOMination 8.  Valentine got his to say his piece, but my interview did not happen.  Instead, to add insult to injury, my wife suffered yet another cowardly attack at the hands of Valentine, and I have good reason to believe that Holmström got his mitts dirty in some fashion regarding this last nail in the coffin:

On May 11, I won’t just be coming to the Leppävaara Sports Hall in Espoo to fight when I face Valentine in a rematch for his BWA Catchweight title.

I’ll be looking to maim.
