Ivan was a Canadian wrestler who hit the big time in the 1980's as one of a team of Russian wrestlers who were here to take out every American they could.
I watched "The Russian Bear" and his tag team partner Ole Anderson rule Georgia wrestling in the 70's and 80's. Koloff was involved in one of the greatest swerves in wrestling history against Dusty "The American Dream" Rhodes.
Koloff was 74 and died from Liver cancer. This news came one day after the news of George Steele made headlines. Damn, my wrestling past in falling rapidly.
