- When and how did you get into Pro wrestling?

 

I made few videos for the Finland's FCF Wrestling. While shooting the videos I heard about the upcoming try-outs. I couldn't quite decided if I would actually go or not because I was already quite old and wasn't sure if it was a good idea to start something like wrestling at that point in my life. In the end I decided to give it a shot and now I'm here.


- Do you have any previous experience with martial arts from before you became a wrestler or other sports you did?

I've done few different sports before. I captained the world's northernmost rugby team for few years. After that I started to do BJJ before moving to wrestling.

- Can you still recall your first training sessions?

I can recall the try-outs. I was excited and little bit scared. I managed to do well and I was quite happy to hear that I could continue my wrestling trainings after that weekend. Afterwards I've learned that our try-outs were ridiculously hard and advanced when it came to the techniques we would do.

- How do you remember your first match, what was the feedback and what experience did you take from it?

My first match was an 8-person tag. The more experienced wrestlers let me actually write the match with them. It was an excellent debut if I may say so myself. Nowadays the in-ring action is little sloppy but the match is still good today.

- Do you have a ‚dream opponent‘ you want to fight above all others?

John Cena. Why wouldn't I like to wrestle with the best in the business?

- Do you have/ had any Wrestling idols Or Childhoodheroes?

I loved so many wrestlers when I first started to watch it. I was a huge Hulkamaniac and I loved Shawn Michaels. Also Triple H was one of my first heroes and young me couldn't stand it when he turned heel.

- What are you doing when you not stand inside the ring?

Probably standing outside of the ring cleaning it. I stream on Twitch and do a lot of videos to different platforms.

- When a booker or company from your Country or around the world will book you , where can they contact you?

On any social media platform. Or with email mikko.shemeikka@fightclubfinland.com

- Thank you very much for your time- I wish you much success at your next event´s .Thank you for your time! Stay well! Stay safe!And do you have some words for your fans at the end?

 

Thank you for this interview. To all my fans: Hope to see you soon on live events and stay safe during these strange times.
