I just received an email from Finland’s #1 newspaper, Helsingin Sanomat, yesterday, regarding my announced involvement in pro wrestling legend Antonio Inoki‘s groundbreaking IGF fight cards in North Korea at the end of this month on August 30 & 31.  This information is, however, untrue.

It is true that I was in negotiations with IGF about appearing and participating at these events, but we never reached a suitable deal and contractual settlement.  I am not aware of how the news of my negotiations with IGF bled through and became public, as a top western consultant out of North Korea and China had also posted infos about my involvement at these events, along with my photo and a short biography about me, which has since been removed from his website.

Regardless, I must inform everyone, that any and all information about my involvement and participation at the IGF events in North Korea on August 30 & 31 are false.  I will not be appearing and I will not be there.  

Several people have already asked me about this, and I felt a need to publicly clarify before this story spreads further.
