Ludvig Borga

A "Finnish" Nightmare to all fans!!!

WWF Circa 1993

The WWF was in a rut. After the firing of Hulk Hogan, much of the WWF's untalented people departed such as Jim Duggan, Brutus Beefcake, The Natural Disastors & Nasty Boys. So Deciding to fill the empty gaps on the roster, the WWF debuted Ludvig Borga, a finnish ex-boxer out to destroy all Americans. Only one Problem. He wasnt really Fin. Borga, real name Tony Halmes, had a series of major squashes, including a match at Summerslam 1993 Vs. Marty Jannetty.

In short, he squashed him like a bug. Following this, Ludvig Borga put an end to Tatanka's 2 year undefeated streak and set his sites on Lex Luger, who happened to be on the opposite team of Borga's at the 1993 Survivor Series. It was the All-Americans vs. Foreign Fanatics, and to show how much everyone liked Borga, here he is, basically hidden behind Crush & Yokozuna.

Sometime in December of 1993, Halmes seriously injured his ankle, derailing his WWF Career and a WWF Title run. But Shit happens, and they sent his ass to Japan.
