Ivan Koloff R.I.P.

For the 2nd day in a row the wrestling world has lost another legend.
Ivan Koloff born Oreal Perras in Montreal, Quebec, Canada in 1942.

"The Russian Bear", age 74, announced 2 weeks ago he was battling liver cancer and the wrestling world rallied to his side but as I personally know, liver cancer is a rapid and always deadly form of the disease.   He died early this morning, February 18th 2017 just a day after the passing of another WWF/WWE legend George "The Animal" Steele.   Rest in Peace to these legends, we will never see the likes of them again.

The man known as “The Russian Bear” actually got his start in his homeland of Canada, where he began his career in the early 1960s as Red McNulty, an Irish hooligan character. After gaining some experience, Koloff traveled to Japan where he honed his craft before returning to Canada as Ivan Koloff, a Russian villain from the Ukraine. In 1969, Koloff debuted in the World Wide Wrestling Federation, managed by Captain Lou Albano and becoming one of the biggest stars in the company. Koloff’s target was the WWWF World Heavyweight Champion Bruno Sammartino, who was the biggest hero the company heralded. After feuding with Sammartino for some time, on January 18th, 1971, Koloff defeated Sammartino in Madison Square Garden for the WWWF Championship with a knee drop from the top rope, ending Sammartino’s 2,803 reign as champion!

Match of The Day - George Steele R.I.P.

Bob Backlund vs George Steele

 WWWF 1977

George "The Animal" Steele R.I.P.

February 17th 2017 
George "The Animal" Steele  aka Jim Myers has passed away at the age of 79.  He was a huge star in the 1980s WWF as his character and the product become more kid friendly.  In the 1970s and early 80s he challenged WWF champions Bruno Sammartino, Pedro Morales and Bob Backlund on several occasions.   Unknown to most fans he was in real life a very successful high school football coach and loved by one and all.   In 2013 he published his life story (which I read) and its fascinating to read about his tremendous college football career and his decision to wrestle in his off season as a coach.  He talked extensively about the change in his character in the late 1980s.   
He will be missed
