Tursas is an American professional wrestler who worked for CHIKARA from 2009 to 2011 and again in 2014 where he was a member of the Chikara stable Bruderschaft des Kreuzes.


Tursas had been working with different companies during his early career in companies like Osaka Pro etc.[citation needed]

Chikara (2007-Present)[edit]

Die Bruderschaft des Kreuzes[edit]

At Chikara's Season eight finale titled Three Fisted Tales following the conclusion of the main event between The Colony (Fire Ant and Soldier Ant) and The Osirian Portal (Amasis and Ophidian), two masked men came from the crowd. Tursas pushed the barrier down and walked into the ring until all the Chikara roster came out to the ring. Not long after, UltraMantis Black demanded they identify themselves; one of them was Ares and the other was Tursas. After this the members of BDK attacked the rest of the Chikara roster. At the end Ares and Tursas along with the rest of BDK stood in the ring and Ares ordered Vökoder and Pink Ant to unmask themselves; they were revealed as Tim Donst and Pinkie Sanchez respectively. After this all BDK members performed the Cross and Tursas turned off the lights at the end of the show. Over the next three years, Tursas competed in different matches with BDK and won (2010) with Ares and Claudio Castagnoli. He began working in a minor role, making signs and writing messages. In 2011 Chikara announced Tursas' profile had been removed, thus ending his time in the BDK.

Tursas made his return to the company in their return show, You Only Live Twice on May 25, where he, Ares, and new member Nøkken defeated The Spectral Envoy (UltraMantis Black, Hallowicked and Frightmare) in a trios match.

Following a ten-man tag team match at Chikara live event The Living Daylights on July 19, 2014 in Manhattan, New York, Tursas was effectively "killed off" of Chikara following an attack by the Estonian Thunderfrog, who leapt off the top rope and smashed Tursas in the chest with the Hammer of Peace. Tursas has not been seen since.

He returned to action at Beyond Wrestling King of Arts on March 1, 2015, teaming with BDK member Nøkken as Jötnar in a 16-man tag-team elimination match.[2]
