Go To

Tursas is an American Professional Wrestler best known for his work in CHIKARA from 2009-2011, and again in 2014. He debuted in 2009 as Klondike Kremlin, and officially arrived in CHIKARA at the end of the year. While he never won a title, he, Ares and Claudio Castagnoli were the 2010 CHIKARA King of Trios.


  • Alliterative Name: Klondike Kremlin
  • Arch-Enemy: Green Ant.
  • Backstory: Revealed in bits and pieces on Twitter during the Titor Conglomerate angle. Tursas is a supernatural Viking guardian spirit of some sort. He worked with the BDK because he owed Ares an unspecified favor, and left when the BDK ended because the favor was paid and he hates America.
  • The Brute: For the BDK, big time.
  • Death from Above: He actually did a moonsault, although it missed.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: As Klondike Kremlin, he had teamed with STIGMA to defeat Frightmare and Cometa de Oro at the non-canonical CHIKARA/Lucha Libre Mexicana on March 9, 2009.

  • DetractorNickname: "Turdsauce." Became in-universe when Eddie Kingston used it.
  • The Dragon: Outside the Five Bad Band configuration, he was this to Ares.
  • Finishing Move: Kreuz Bomb, Big Splash
  • Foreign Wrestling Heel: Plays up the "America sucks~!" heel rhetoric on Twitter.
  • The Giant: 6'8, 376 lbs.
  • Horny Vikings: His mask even has horns on it. He, Ares and Claudio (with Nøkken replacing Claudio in the new BDK) had a tag team finisher called Ragnarok.
  • Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: Teamed with the 5'4, 110 lbs. Daizee Haze to defeat The Throwbacks (Dasher Hatfield and Sugar Dunkerton) at CHIKARA Aniversario Zehn, May 22, 2010.
  • Killed Off for Real: By the Estonian Thunderfrog at The Living Daylights.
    • Back from the Dead: According to his and Nøkken's Twitter accounts, Tursas followed the reincarnated Estonian Thunderfrog out of Valhalla. Unfortunately, though he promised revenge against the reincarnated Thunderfrog, he did not set foot back in CHIKARA.
  • Meaningful Name: Tursas in Finnish means both "god of war" and "sea monster."
    • Department of Redundancy Department: His Twitter handle being WarTursas could be interpreted as "War God of War."
    • Religious and Mythological Theme Naming: He and Nøkken teamed up at Beyond King Of Arts as JÖTNAR with Devin Blaze, Soldier Ant, The Devastation Corporation (Max Smashmaster and Flex Rumblecrunch) and Flawless and Lawless (Blake Morris and Rex Lawless) in a loss to The Garden State Gods (Eric Corvis and Myke Quest) and Da Hoodz (Davey Cash and Kris Pyro) and Milk Chocolate (Brandon Watts & Randy Summers), Qefka The Quiet and Silver Ant.
  • Mighty Glacier: Attempted moonsault notwithstanding, Tursas was not quick on his feet, but could hit harder than anyone else through sheer weight and inertia.
  • No-Sell: In Kingston's promo at The Mint Condition, he talked about how when anyone else had hit Tursas, Tursas didn't move, saying how he was going to make Tursas move.
  • Power Stable:
  • Put on a Bus: After Green Ant defeated him at High Noon. Returned over two years later as part of the new BDK.
  • Self-Serving Memory: In response to someone posting on Twitter a gif of him hitting the Kreuz Bomb on Green Ant at High Noon, November 13, 2011, he said that it was "the last move of the match which I won cleanly and without expending much effort." The actual truth is that Green Ant won by making him tap out to the CHIKARA Special: Green. It was his last appearance for CHIKARA until the return show You Only Live Twice on May 25, 2014.
  • Take That!: From his Twitter, January 28, 2017.
    "BDK was evil, yes. But Trump is entire other breed of repugnant fascist scum. May he rot eternal in deepest Helheim immersed in troll feces."

How well does it match the trope?
