SLAM! and Squared Circle partnership

SLAM! Wrestling and 7-time world heavyweight wrestling champion, Marty Jones and his Squared Circle Academy from the UK, have entered into a new partnership, aimed at bringing up and properly equipping the next generations of professional wrestling talent for both the European and global wrestling industry.

 

Marty Jones, in the pro wrestling business since his late teens in the 1970s, has faced them all in our game. From legends like Andre The Giant to multi-time WWE/WWF world champion, Bret ”Hitman” Hart, to lucha libre superstars like Mil Mascaras, Marty Jones is one of the most respected trainers of top wrestling talent in the world today and a coach of current WWE NXT superstars.

 

SLAM! Wrestling founder and head trainer, ”The Rebel” StarBuck, is without question the most accomplished pro wrestler out of Northern Europe since the turn of the century. StarBuck has taught wrestlers in eight countries and been a champion all around the world, a main eventer facing top names like Fit Finlay, Keiji Mutoh, Doug Williams, Yoshihiro Tajiri, Super Crazy, Tatanka and PCO.

 

SLAM! Wrestling welcomes Marty Jones and his Squared Circle Academy in partnership, as we look forward to making the pro grappling game great gain! As our slogan says: Welcome back to wrestling!

SLAM! Pro Wrestling Boot Camp 2021

With one more month to go till the end of the year, we are now opening applications for SLAM! Pro Wrestling Boot Camp 2021.  Weekly courses will take place next to the Suomenoja suburb in Espoo, Finland on Monday and Thursday evenings between 18–21:00.

 

All applicants and those interested need to send a current, full-body photo of themselves, showcasing their level of physical fitness at the moment, along with a open letter detailing why they would like to take part in pro wrestling schooling.

 

Courses will be taught by head trainer, 4-time European wrestling champion, “The Rebel” StarBuck, with all facets of professional wrestling covered.  This course is for those who wish to challenge themselves and push their physical limits, as training is immersive and intense.

 

For details or any questions you might have, email and applicants accepted to the course can expect to begin at SLAM! Pro Wrestling Boot Camp 2020 starting on Monday, January 4 just after New Year!

 

ATTN: We are adhering to current government regulations limiting attendance to ten people at the moment, so be sure to act promptly and secure your spot at the Boot Camp!

Slamageddon postponed to March 2021.

Due to current, tightened government and EU imposed restrictions in light of the current Covid-19 pandemic in Europe, we are forced once more to reschedule our Slamageddon 2021 supershow event at Apollo Live Club in Helsinki for Saturday, March 20.

 

As SLAM! Wrestling is a company with valuable co-op partners, we are liable for all parties involved, and with that responsibility in mind, we amicably shift the date of our big event to a more pliable time, when public gathering restrictions will have eased up.

 

Scheduled for Slamageddon are top, international names and title matches, with premiere talent from at least 10 different countries.  In light of this, we also need to ensure entry into Finland for all competitors from each specific country, in order for them to be able to wrestle at Slamageddon.  With flights currently being rescheduled and cancelled worldwide to accommodate Covid regulations, this also lends to the valid argument to set a new date.

 

We apologize for any inconvenience to our customers and fans, but in light of the incredibly trying year that 2020 has proven to be worldwide, changes are understandable, as regulations waver from month to month.  Current restrictions by large are set to end at the end of February 2021, therefore allowing for our big event to take place in March, just in time for Spring and hopefully a new start for everyone.

 

All tickets previously bought for Slamageddon are valid on March 20, 2021.
