After over 25 years in the professional wrestling industry, I’ve decided to take the next step and enter the event organizing field, offering custom-tailored, internationally-flavored pro wrestling shows to clients, companies, event organizers, clubs and festivals.  SLAM! Wrestling Finland is on on-demand service that gives the client the freedom to choose the kinds of wrestlers and talents from a wide, international talent pool of top stars for their event.  It’s really quite revolutionary and innovative as an approach, and this big, media Mega Launch event upcoming on March 22 will be my showcase to the movers and shakers as well as the public at large as to what SLAM! Wrestling Finland truly has to offer!

On March 22, 2019 at The Circus, there will be a three-way Triple Threat international women’s championship title match, an international Hardcore match that sees the rule book thrown out the window, a battle of colossal behemoths, a “David vs. Goliath” big man vs. smaller man match-up, an international tag team match and a bevy of exciting, dynamic singles matches between top wrestlers from different countries!

Already confirmed for the card: the bodyguard of the stars, Tiny Iron from Great Britain, is coming to SLAM! Wrestling Finland Mega Launch!  Tiny is 2m tall and weighs in at 120kg plus, with biceps that have to be seen to be believed: 24 inches of python power, brother!  Even Hulk Hogan would be jealous!  Tiny has been the bodyguard for Beyoncé, The Black-Eyed Peas, Rhianna and 50 Cent.  Tiny Iron is a true, international superstar and we’re excited to have him in Helsinki at this big event on March 22!

This past Saturday, November 24, in the city of Kotka, I entered a new phase of life.  One which saw me embark on a the beginning of a new chapter with my SLAM! Wrestling Finland company.  Because yesterday, we pulled off our maiden voyage with SLAM!

I recall my father saying to me back when I was a younger man, that one day he believed I’d be a leader, a boss.  He saw that stock in my persona and character.  I kept his words in mind as I traveled down the roads of life, feeling in my heart that one day, indeed, I would become what he believed back then.

I look at my life at the age of 45 and I draw parallels to my old friend Chris Jericho and the lessons to be learned from his life over the past couple of years.  Chris left WWE on the top of the mountain, as a favorably featured main star on RAW.  He dropped the Intercontinental Championship to Kevin Owens at Wrestlemania 33 and then left the company riding the high wave.  Chris hooked up with his old buddies Jado and Gedo, the bookers of New Japan Pro Wrestling, and orchestrated a deal for him to come in to NJPW and become a lead star for the second biggest wrestling company on the planet.  To this day, he holds their IWGP Intercontinental title and just sold out his own Jericho Cruise, which was highly touted in the media.

Now Chris could have chosen to stay with WWE after Wrestlemania 33 but he chose not to.  In retrospect, I think I can assess his situation: he had done everything he could for that company.  He’d been a multi-time WWE Champion, holding a plethora of titles, and at the age of 46 back then, he surely understood that his days as a regularly featured talent were coming to a close.  The younger stars of today were coming up fast, being pushed hard, and the older stars would need to take supporting roles before long.  So the question really seemed to be: do I spin my wheels and remain here, collecting a nice payday, or do I want to grow as a human being and see how else I could spread my wings beyond what I’ve already achieved?

As I’ve gotten older, I understand this train of thought perfectly.  Like life coach Tony Robbins often says, out of the seven basic human needs, the last two are the needs of the spirit: the need to contribute and the need to grow.  I can underline this with clarity.

Here in 2018, it was time for me to take an honest look at my life and ask myself the pivotal question: what do I want to do with my life from hereon forward?  How do I see myself facilitating a living for my family and myself in the future?  Where do my talents lie, and should I venture off into a new field and trade, or should I attempt to make a living utilizing and doing what I already know over the course of accrued life experience?  I chose the latter.

And so it was, that last night in the city of Kotka at Power Tech Group‘s annual pre-Christmas party, SLAM! Wrestling Finland was launched upon the world.  It was done under the most optimal, high-class circumstances possible: professional lighting and sound, customized entrance way, a fresh and new audience that was excited to be there, and a card of pro wrestling action featuring the best, carefully-selected talents for each match that would facilitate a fun and dynamic night of action for everyone on hand.

Thank you, Power Tech Group, for not only sponsoring and making our SLAM! Wrestling Finland ring, but also for giving us the stage and spotlight to set forth on the waters of live entertainment service providers in the Nordic sector!

This is only the beginning.

Over the past year or so I have mulled over possibly starting my very own service revolving around pro wresting.  This summer, I decided to go for broke, as they say, and launch SLAM! Wrestling Finland.

SLAM! Wrestling Finland banner

SLAM! is an on-demand service that offers the client buying the show to choose the kinds of wrestlers that they’d want to see at their event.  Be it the muscular beefcake, the monsterous leviathan, the high-flier, female wrestlers, whatever it may be, we SLAM! Wrestling Finland supplies that demand and need.

The client also gets to decide what types of matches they want to see and host: singles matches, championship matches, tag team matches, Triple Threat matches, etc.  Plus, the client decides how many matches in total they wish to have at their event.

This approach to professional wrestling is revolutionary and I believe it offers people something completely outside the box.  Take a look at the just-released Story Behind SLAM! video below to get depth into the saga leading up to this venture:

Also be sure to take a look at our promotional trailer detailing the offering made possible through SLAM! Wrestling Finland:

The unique thing about SLAM! Wrestling Finland is that it puts the power into the client’s hands.  The client becomes the promoter and is able to get exactly the kind of product that they want for their money.

With my 25-years in the pro wrestling industry worldwide, I can get you, as the client, any kind of wrestler that you would like (outside of WWE, the talents of which are exclusively bound to only work for WWE).  You set the budget, we supply the line-up.  It’s as simple as that.

I did an extensive interview with my birth country Canada’s top internet sports media, SLAM! Sports, for their website.  Journalist Blaine Van Der Griend went to extensive lengths, cross-checking and getting the low-down from some influential people that have seen my pro wrestling career sparkle in Japan.  This piece of media is really a treat, folks.  The gloves come off here, so sit back, take 15-minutes and read some good inside stuff: http://slam.canoe.com/Slam/Wrestling/2015/07/05/22488981.html
