Thursday night (Dec 19) there was a show at a club in Helsinki, Finland. In the headliner Timo Laine stopped Dimitri Faltin but the big story was that the ring didn´t really fit in the venue and had to be built up over the stage and that meant that there was about 3 meters / 10 feet to the floor from the ring. At first the Finnish commission stopped the event but after guards were placed around the ring the show went ahead and no-one got hurt.
