Posts Tagged ‘Killer Karlsson’

I write this blog following my double-countout match against the Dominican Republic’s El Dinamico last night at an IWS Wrestling event in Cavour, Italy, as we close down on FCF Wrestling’s DOMination 4 event on Thursday, June 28 in Helsinki, Finland.

A lot of people have been waiting for an awfully long time to see the next chapter in the Finland vs. Sweden wrestling rivalry that started on July 1, 2011 back at DOMination 2 in Helsinki.  It was then, that Sweden’s top gun in the wrestling game, Killer Karlsson, arrived in Finland to tangle with Yours Truly.  This coinicentally was also hot on the heels of Swedenìs crushing loss to Finland in the 2011 World Ice Hockey Championships.  The Swedes were more than bitter, whereas the Finns were more than elated to get a one-up in the sporting world over their former masters.  Karlsson had much of this same bad blood in his veins, as he landed at Helsinki-Vantaa Airport in preparation for our first match last year.

So it was at DOMination 2 on July 1, 2011, that Killer Karlsson and StarBuck waged a war for the ages.  With the rabid Helsinki crowd as hot as the summer weather that sweltering night, the fans on hand witnessed Karlsson stoop to all-time lows in his attempt to upset the “Lord of FCF”, as I have been coined in Japan.  Karlsson not only assaulted me with his metal flagpole, which he brought to the ring, waving his country’s flag, he also assaulted our female FCF timekeeper at ringside, as you can witness in the following video (off of my “Finnish Fight Collection 2” StarBuck DVD, available at all FCF Wrestling events):

Killer Karlsson went back to Sweden with his head held high –  albeit questionably high, I would say – to live to fight another day.  I am sure that Karlsson realized and knew that his actions would have repercussions, and in so saying, he would have to pay the proverbial piper somewhere down the line.  That eventual reckoning day has now come, and it is signed, sealed and soon to be delivered at DOMination 4 on June 28 in Helsinki.

Killer Karlsson sent FCF Wrestling a video message about his upcoming No-Holds-Barred match with me on June 28.  He chose to be so belligerent that out of spite, he recorded his speel in Swedish (not that I understand a single word):

In kind, I thought it would be more applicable to send my message directly to Karlsson in English, so as to not leave any stone unturned:

To wrap things up, I would be taking out health insurance if I were Killer Karlsson, because when he lands in Helsinki for his No-Holds-Barred match against me at DOMination 4, there’s a high and likely chance that he won’t be walking out of DOM Discotheque on his own when the dust settles.

One year ago on July 1, 2011 in Helsinki, I faced Sweden’s top wrestler Killer Karlsson at an FCF Wrestling event entitled DOMination 2.  It was a long-awaited showdown, as Finland and Sweden have had a blood-rivalry going back many decades.  As the pioneer of Finnish pro wrestling, I was not only representing myself, I was representing the country that my parents were born in, as I clashed with Karlsson in our first meeting.  To say that our duel was highly-spirited would be a grandiose understatement, as the fans packed into Helsinki’s DOM club venue roared with every blow that I dealt out to the big Swede.

During our match at DOMination 2, Karlsson got himself intentionally disqualified and proceeded to beat me senseless with his metal Swedish flagpole.  It sounds almost as if he was defacing his own country by using his own flag to perpetrate his actions.  Karlsson left me laying in the ring, gasping for breath, as I got choked out on top of it all before the dust settled.

Now, upcoming at DOMination 4 on June 28 in Helsinki, I get my chance at retribution in a No-Holds-Barred match against Killer Karlsson.  Anything goes on June 28th, and that means I can pound a mudhole into Karlsson with his own flagpole, should be bring one, and there is nothing the official can do about it.  As a matter of fact, I can use any furniture that isn’t nailed down to beat Karlsson black and blue.  Hell, I can even use whatever IS nailed down!
