SLAMnation in Espoo

The hottest LIVE action extravaganza in the Nordics – SLAMNATION – comes to Trap Factory in Espoo, Finland right next to Aalto University on Saturday, October 14.


This megashow will feature the top stars in European professional wrestling in action with six exciting, diverse matches on the card.


In the main event, SLAM champion “Wildman” Heimo Ukonselkä defends his prestigious title against the challenge of “Sadistic” Sam Gradwell of England in a rematch from this past summer, where these two squared off in Uusikaupunki at Karjurock 2023 and things got ugly as Gradwell was disqualified, leading to a brutal beatdown of the champion. The score will be settled at Trap Factory as we bring you SLAMNATION on October 14.


It’s going to be a notable comeback for England’s “Golden Amazon” Heidi Katrina also, who returns to action after well over a year away due to injury, to compete in the first round of the B Block in the SLAM women’s championship title tournament against Canada’s Aurora Teves.


Also in action at SLAMNATION, The Pirates of the North Sea – CJ Rawlings & Steve Valentino of England – arrive in SLAM! Wrestling to take on the Veterans League duo of Finnish pro wrestling pioneer “The Rebel” StarBuck and “Metal Warrior” Stark Adder in tag team warfare.


After the fallout of their past two tag team outings at both Hell City SLAM and Hellsinki Metal Festival this August, the longtime pairing of the Green and Black Machine – “Back Breaker” Dylan Broda and “Hellraiser” Eemi Helén – see their ranks torn asunder and with strife in the fold, these two will now go head-to-head at SLAMNATION to settle the issue that has arisen between the two of them.


The new trios unit of Kosmo the Evil Clown, Dr. Sadism and Dr. No – The Freak Show collectively – go up against masked fan favorite El Miguel, Nick Lukkonen and a third partner to be announced.


In a rematch from the incredible athletic match that they had at Hellsinki Metal Festival, fan favorites TT Suosalo of Finland and Artur Arder of Estonia will meet up again in order to see who the top dog is after their previous match went to a double countout as neither competitor could make it to their feet by the official’s count of ten.


Witness the very best in European professional wrestling and join us for an unforgettable night of action, thrills and excitement on October 14 at Trap Factory Espoo as we bring you SLAMNATION!

Lights Out! in Porvoo

Lights Out! pro wrestling event, Porvoo, October 2022!

SLAM! Wrestling Finland will close out the year in time for the holiday season on November 19 in Porvoo at our SLAM! Pro Wrestling Boot Camp training hall with a special event entitled Lights Out! with tickets only 10 € adults and FREE for kids! Start time at 15:00, so bring the whole family to enjoy an afternoon filled with action!


For this event, we have two veteran wrestlers coming from the United States to compete at Lights Out! Jake Omen and Jack Vaughn from Indiana, USA will be in action on November 19, in addition to our own SLAM!

At this Lights Out event, Porvoo’s own former boxing sensation Miika Forsström will finally get a chance to even the score with Dylan Broda of Toronto, Canada, as these two have been at odds for nearly a year now. Broda has continuously found questionable ways to scratch out victories over Forsström in both tag team and singles matches, so this time on November 19, these two are going to have special “Loaded Boxing Glove on a Pole – Lights Out Match”, where a reinforced boxing glove will be hung on a pole secured to one of the ring posts and the objective of the match will be to retrieve the glove and put it on in order to attempt to deliver the closing blow with it. This time, the match cannot end until the glove has been retrieved and used for its intended purpose, resulting in Lights Out for one of these two competitors!


In a SLAM! championship title match, “The Veteran” Jack Vaughn from Indiana challenges reigning champion, “Wildman” Heimo Ukonselkä for the prestigious belt.


In another title match, this time for the Nordic wrestling championship, Jake Omen from the USA will challenge reigning champion “Metal Warrior” Stark Adder.
