The main event for FCF Wrestling’s next outing Mäntän Mättö on May 17 in Mänttä-Vilppula, Finland was just announced today.  I will be teaming with “Wildman” Heimo Ukonselkä to do battle with the gargantuan combo of Russian monster powerhouse Vladimir Petrov and the enormous human tank, King Kong Karhula.

Karhula, formerly known as Ibo Ten, has seemingly been born-again after he attacked both Ukonselkä and myself in our FCF title match back on April 20 in Helsinki at FCF’s Jatkosota 2012 event.  After all was said on done back on April 20, Ukonselkä was stripped of the FCF championship by General Manager, Robert Holmström, after Heimo struck a belligerent Holmström in the maw following the match.

After the way that Robert berated both Ukonselkä and I following our battle at Jatkosota 2012, it is clear the the FCF General Manager wants to see the winds of change and a new order in our domestic professional wrestling scene.  Now, Robert Holmström has signed King Kong Karhula and Vadimir Petrov to face Ukonselkä and myself, so as to commandeer a new top dog spot in Finnish professional wrestling.

Karhula and Petrov top the scales at a whopping 260+ kilos of weight, so this match will be a true test for Ukonselkä and myself, as we fight to keep our spot in the main event spotlight at Mäntän Mättö.

Tickets available now through night club and event sponsor in advance.

I am excited about the fact that FCF Wrestling here in Finland will be finally making their first excursion to the city of Mänttä (or Mänttä-Vilppula as it is known as now) on Thursday, May 17 as part of the annual Mänttä Rally car racing show.

I lived in Vilppula, right next to Mänttä, between 1996 – 2003 when I first moved to Finland from Canada.  I literally lived in the middle of the bush, out in the countryside, where the musical wellsprings of songwriting opened up in my creativity.  Since that time, I have gone on to rock many international stages as a vocalist in several bands over the years.  It was also in the summer of 2003 when I moved to Espoo, Finland that I began coaching Finnish wrestling talent, spawning the very first wrestling class in Finnish history.  Out of that class, the only wrestler still active to this day is Johnny McMetal, as the other active Finnish original, Stark Adder, quit the business last year in May.

Night Club Morgan Kane in Mänttä is the official sponsor of Mäntän Mättö on May 17, which will be held at the Mänttä City Gymnasium (Mäntän Liikuntasali).  The card will be announced shortly, so stay tuned to for developments.
