Go To

The Estonian Thunderfrog is an American Professional Wrestler from Minneapolis, Minnesota best known for his work in CHIKARA. He debuted at WiF! The Allentown Potassium Massacre on October 27, 2012 with a disqualification victory over Kobald. He wrestled for the various Wrestling Is... promotions, officially entering CHIKARA in 2014 as part of The Baltic Siege with The Latvian Proud Oak and The Lithuanian Snow Troll. At The Living Daylights on July 19, 2014, he destroyed Tursas of Die Bruderschaft des Kreuzes with his Hammer of Peace. The following night, at The World Is Not Enough, Deucalion, the Big Bad of The Flood, the amalgamation of Heel groups out to destroy CHIKARA, destroyed him with the Chokebreaker. After Icarus destroyed Deucalion after their match at the Season Finale iPPV Tomorrow Never Dies on December 6th, a video was shown of a frog with a cape on a farm. He returned to action at BCWnote  Laid To Rest on May 8, 2015 with a victory over El Bano. He wrestled for BCW and Prime Time Wrestling and returned to CHIKARA at Making A Stand on August 22nd, 2015. He reclaimed his Hammer at the end of the 2015 Season Finale Top Banana on December 5th, turning back into the Thunderfrog. At National Pro Wrestling Day 2016 on February 6th, he defeated Wani in the final of the Young Lions Cup Tournament. He has also wrestled for Excellence Professional Wrestling, F1RST Wrestling, Pro Wrestling Battleground, and other promotions in Minnesota. Along with his YLC run, he and Wildcat held the PTW Tag Team Titles, he is a former PWB Battleground Champion and a former PWA Tag Team Champion with Wildcat.


"Estonian Troperfrog":

  • Arch-Enemy: Originally, The Proletariat Boar of Moldova during the Baltic Siege-Bloc Party feud.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Disappeared without explanation after Season 16 finished. In 2017, he tweeted that he no longer worked for CHIKARA, and was removed from the roster page months later.
  • Drop the Hammer: Wielded first the Hammer of Peace, then the Hammer of War after the Bloc Party destroyed the original hammer. One of his trademarks was slamming it down from the top turnbuckle, stunning everyone and knocking them from the ring. Killed the Brown Morning of Belarus and Tursas with it.
  • Finishing Move: Froggy Splash, Lily Bomb
  • Funny Animal: He's a wrestling frog!
  • Funny Foreigner: Was from Estonia and didn't have a good grasp of the English language. Chuck Taylor and the Gentleman's Club delighted in teaching him curse words without telling him what they actually meant.
  • A God Am I: Started calling himself ThunderGod in 2016.
  • Killed Off for Real: Executed by Deucalion at The World Is Not Enough.
    • Back from the Dead: Reincarnated, as iPPV viewers witnessed in the Tomorrow Never Dies stinger "Waseca County". In October 2015, his reincarnation, the Estonian FarmerFrog, made his CHIKARA debut, then re-became the Thunderfrog in February 2016.
  • Nicknaming the Enemy: Called The Proletariat Boar of Moldova "Dirty Black Pig."
  • Odd Friendship: With Jervis Cottonbelly. The FarmerFrog looked to be rekindling this with him, until he became the Thunderfrog once more.
  • Only the Chosen May Wield: The Hammer of Peace/War. It could barely be moved by anyone besides the Thunderfrog, much less actually lifted.
    • After the Thunderfrog's death, this overlapped with Take Up My Sword, as the Hammer was lifted and claimed by Icarus at the end of this video. After Icarus was found unworthy, the FarmerFrog claimed the Hammer after Top Banana.
  • Parts Unknown: "Beyond The Galaxies"
  • Red Baron: "The Pride of Tallinn"
  • Shout-Out: To The Mighty Thor.
    • Also a minor one to The Frog Prince, as he sure loved his princesses. (And milk maids. And queens.)
  • Tag Team:
    • The Baltic Siege
    • The Cat and Frog Connection, with Wildcat, renamed the Minnesota Wrecking Zoo.
