Last night at FCF Wrestling’s Lokakuun Luuvitonen event in Vantaa, Finland, I wrestled a young man named Sly Sebastian, giving him arguably his finest match to date.  The kid has a lot of heart, and a definitive get-to-it grasp on things.  I applaud him for his efforts, and last night, Sly Sebastian put his best foot forward.

All that said, however, Sly still could not defeat Yours Truly.  Sure, he put up a gallant effort, but in the end, it was the outside interference of the contingent known as Bättre Folk, that sabotaged our match.  The referee called off the contest, as Valentine assaulted both Sly and I.  For me, this was the second time that my old rival Valentine messed with my bout in the last few months.

Beyond that, however, Valentine has put his hands on my wife over the course of this year four times already.  This last episode last night really exceeded even the lowest of standards.

After calling their newest Bättre Folk cohort, Barbie, to the ring, Valentine and his manager Robert Holmström held my wife, Miss D, as Barbie smacked her across the face.  Following this, Valentine proceeded to mimic a sexual act over my wife’s fallen form.  That, in and of itself, was about as low as someone can get, outside of actually raping their victim.

I have asked for one last outing against Valentine to put an end to this lowlife crap, and that is a stretcher match.  I promised Valentine a stretcher ride when he initially put his hands on Miss D back in March of this year.  Now, I am finally going to make good.  One of us will be carried out of the building on our backs, and I am willing to put up my BWA Catchweight title as a winner-takes-all trophy, when that happens.

Look for it …

This past weekend in Helsinki, Finland, a new FCF Champion was crowned in King Kong Karhula. After surviving a first round Triple Threat match involving myself and ”Wildman” Heimo Ukonselkä (in which Karhula managed to pin me following a World’s Strongest Slam), the 130kg behemoth would go on to defeat old rival, gender bender Jessica Love, in the semi-finals, and then upset Valentine in the finals to become the new titleholder.

Firstly, I have to say that Karhula was more aggressive than ever before in his tournament outings this weekend. His sheer relentlessness and urgency led to him capitalizing at a crucial moment in the opening round threeway match, which was sabotaged in part by FCF valet Barbie, as I am told she pushed my foot off of the ropes in the closing pinfall – a move that was unnoticed by the referee in the heat of the moment. I have no idea what Barbie’s agenda and intentions were, but I promise to get that sorted out, because she cost me dearly this past weekend, as I was looking to score my fifth FCF title to date.

FCF photographer Jarmo Katila happened to be backstage when I cornered Barbie, and he took this shot.

I have had more than my fair share of trouble in the past with Barbie when she was Valentine’s valet a couple of years back, when she would constantly interfere in my matches. Barbie has since sided with Kristian Kurki, who is now indefinitely on the sidelines with a serious back injury at the hands of Valentine earlier this year. How apropos. However, I have no idea what Barbie’s issue with me is this time around. I did however manage to corner her after the event in her dressing room, but as the video below shows, I didn’t get any answers … yet.

Karhula’s match against Jessica Love on Satuday, August 25th was one of the BEST matches I have EVER seen in all of the past nine years that professional wrestling has been promoted domestically in Finland. Words cannot describe the level of excellence here, and I dare say that the match that these two had easily wipes the mat with 85% of anything that I have seen on WWE or TNA broadcasts in the past two years. Once again, I must say that the level of aptitude and match quality in FCF Wrestling these days blows away the bulk of the competition and contemporaries in the mat game today.

Karhula’s tournament final win against 4-time FCF Champion Valentine was decisive and clean, capitalizing at the most opportune moment to claim victory. Karhula’s package piledriver was downright nasty, and with it he put away Valentine, claiming the FCF title in the process. With that win, King Kong Karhula – after the seven years he has been in professional wrestling hunting after his first championship – became the hunted in one fell swoop.

The return of both The Mighty Perkules and Stark Adder was received with open arms and much anticipation by the FCF fans in Helsinki this past weekend, although neither man advanced to the semi-finals. Perkules lost clean to Valentine and Adder lost to Jessica Love in the opening round. Whereas Perkules took his loss in stride and even congratulated his foe, Adder clearly was left with a bitter taste upon loss in the opening round of the tournament. In the semi-final round as King Kong Karhula faced Jessica Love, Adder assaulted a fallen Jessica at ringside and left Karhula to pick the bones, leading to a tainted victory for the new FCF Champion. My bet is that Adder, being a one-time FCF Champion, is somewhat disgruntled at the fanfare and support that Jessica Love has gotten from the fans, propelling the gender bender’s career like a rocket over the past couple of years in both Scandinavia and Japan.

Speaking of the Land of the Rising Sun, I leave for Japan on Tuesday this coming week to fight for Wrestling New Classic. Teaming with AKIRA and Syuri, our trio will face TAJIRI, Mikey Whipwreck and Kana in a series of barbed wire matches across Japan next week. The first will be in Tokyo at Korakuen Hall on August 30th, then on August 31st in Osaka and on September 1st in Toyohashi. I have a feeling things are going to get ugly…
