Meiko Satomura, Tajiri, Matt Cross, Ivelisse to invade the Nordics – Wrestle Aid is Finland’s supercard, and here’s how you can watch it live


Professional wrestling fans here in Finland are treated with quite a show this Saturday as SLAM! Wrestling Finland presents a charity event named Wrestle Aid in the city of Rauma.

The card—which most likely is the most stacked one in the Nordics this year—includes these seven matches:

  • Meiko Satomura vs. Ivelisse vs. Sadie Gibbs
  • Yoshihiro Tajiri vs. ”The Rebel” StarBuck (FIN)
  • Matt Cross vs. Jami Aalto (FIN)
  • Jurn Simmons vs. ”Häijy” Heimo Ukonselkä (FIN)
  • Scotty Davis vs. Viktor Tykki (FIN)
  • Stark Adder (FIN) vs. Toni Tamminen (FIN)
  • Carlos Zamora & Mikk Vainula (EST) vs. Patrik Mieto (FIN) & Polar Pekko (FIN)

Not only is the card stacked, Wrestle Aid will be streamed live for free by one of Finland’s biggest newspapers Ilta-Sanomat with high production values.

Wrestle Aid is SLAM! Wrestling Finland’s second public event since its launch last year. The first one—Mega Launch—was streamed live for free by Ilta-Sanomat, too.

Canadian-born ”The Rebel” StarBuck is the pioneer of Finnish professional wrestling and the founder of SLAM! Wrestling Finland. Jami Aalto is called ”the luchador of Lapland” and is a high flyer. ”Häijy” Heimo Ukonselkä is an entertaining and experienced brawler. Viktor Tykki is a rising star and has been called the Kevin Owens of Finland. Stark Adder is one of Finland’s first wrestlers and an interesting technical wrestler. Toni Tamminen might remind you of a young Chris Jericho. Mikk Vainula is a powerhouse from Estonia. Patrik Mieto has trained with Katsuyori Shibata in New Japan Pro-Wrestling’s training camps. Polar Pekko is the next big thing.


If you have any questions, feel free to ask. We at Smarkside will be doing commentary for the broadcast and are happy to help you enjoy and understand Finnish wrestling.

At Wrestle Aid 2019, Dutch big man Jurn Simmons squares off against Finland's "Wildman" Heimo Ukonselkä in a battle of brawling brutes! Jurn Simmons is an enforcer type of wrestler, grappling in countries such as his homeland of Holland, Germany, Israel and the UK.  With six years of in-ring experience, this 1.88m/115kg former two-time wXw unified world champion is a force to be reckoned with in the rings of European pro wrestling.

Get ready for the ring to shake as these two big men do battle on June 29 in Rauma, Finland at Wrestle Aid 2019!  Tickets available now through Ticketmaster Finland. #heimoukonselkä #heimothewildman #jurnsimmons #prowrestling #professionalwrestling #slamwrestlingfinland #wwe #wrestleaid #sportsentertainment #wxw

It's an intercontinental battle between two of the bright and promising young lions of the grappling game on June 29 in Rauma, Finland at Wrestle Aid 2019! Scotty Davis of Ireland has been wrestling since the age of six, winning many freestyle titles in Ireland and England, turning pro at the surprising age of 13. Scotty may very well be the only full-time 18 year old on the European wrestling circuit today! Viktor Tykki is one of the most promising big man types of wrestlers to come out of Europe in the past few years. He's deceptively quick for his size with ruthless aggression, making him a hungry and dangerous opponent. Get your tickets now via Ticketmaster Finland for the biggest international pro wrestling supershow of the summer in Northern Europe! #wrestleaid #slamwres #slamsports #slamwrestlingfinland #prowrestling #professionalwrestling #scottydavis #viktoryykki #sportsentertainment #ammattipaini

It's a huge, marquee match-up at Wrestle Aid 2019 on June 29 in Rauma, Finland as the Luchadore of Lapland, Jami Aalto, takes on world-travelled Matt Cross of the USA.
