Media coverage in Estonia.

Mikk Vainula, part of SLAM! Wrestling’s talent roster and one of our most valuable assets from the land of Estonia, got a chance to tell about his story, his life in pro wrestling, and future goals for Estonian newspaper Ohtuleht. He also touches upon the subject of the future landscape of pro wrestling in Estonia. 

 

Since SLAM! now operates in Estonia, in addition to Finland, we’re happy to see Mikk and pro wrestling in the Estonian media. The interview is in Estonian, but if you can hadle that, feel free to listen to the podcast version of his interview on our blog page in Estonian or visit Õhtuleht.

SLAM! Wrestling is ‘Oddly good’

SLAM! Wrestling Finland had the express honor and privilege of being a part of a big social media campaign for Finland’s largest dairy producer, Valio.  With the campaign’s central theme revolving around Valio’s new Oddlygood line, Jarppi Leppälä of The Extreme Dudesons and popular radio DJ, Alma Hätönen, ventured into the world of professional wrestling as they bravely sought out new hobbies and sports.

 

Valio is the largest dairy producer in Finland, as they answer for 85% of the milk manufactured in our country.  Valio also operates in other Nordic countries, as well as the Baltics.

 

We’re glad to see Valio’s marketing team thinking outside the box, wanting to produce new and ambitious, innovative campaigns, which fit SLAM! Wrestling Finland’s brand and pro wrestling perfectly.

 

This campaign works as a great example of how pro wrestling’s status in the world of sports entertainment is strong, as its standing can be easily integrated  into the business world at large, as well as marketing in general.  SLAM! Wrestling Finland effectively positions itself amidst the business world, offering a fantastic opportunity for companies to be seen and noticed alongside a world-class, internationally-flavored, exciting and sporty brand, while enabling co-op partners to clearly stand out of the grey mass of the social media and mass marketing conundrum.

 

We’d like to extend our thanks to Valio and their marketing team, as well as Rabbit Films, for a job well done and a pleasant experience all around!

Miranda Gordy to adopt new theme music feat. SLAM!

In the summer of 2019, SLAM! Wrestling Finland founder Michael ”StarBuck” Majalahti and his southern rock band Crossfyre recorded a remake and cover version of the very first rock & wrestling song, Badstreet USA.  The original was written and performed in 1982 by WWE Hall of Fame wrestler, Michael P.S. Hayes, of The Fabulous Freebirds fame.

 

At StarBuck’s behest, Crossfyre recorded both their own cover version of Badstreet USA, as well as a music video remake of the original music video from 1987.  The new music video and song got a tremendous reception amongst wrestling fans worldwide and was covered in several wrestling medias across the globe upon it’s release The new music video also features clips from SLAM! Wrestling events.

 

One of the people who caught on to the song was a female wrestler named Miranda Gordy, daughter of the late Fabulous Freebird, Terry Gordy.  Miranda contacted Crossfyre about using the band’s remake of Badstreet USA as her official ring music, as a homage to her father and his legendary tag team.

 

Check out Miranda’s video message to both Crossfyre and to the wrestling fans out there regarding this piece of news:
