• On This Day In Wrestling History (July 29, 2018) – Old School WWF Legend Passes Away
On this day in 2018, we lost Old School WWF Legend Nikolai Volkoff (Real name: Josip Peruzovic) at the age of 70 due to medical issues.
Volkoff wrestled for the World Wide Wrestling Federation, later the World Wrestling Federation during the 70s, 80s & 90s, with his biggest accomplishment being his win of the WWF World Tag Team titles with The Iron Sheik at the first ever WrestleMania event, where they defeated the U.S. Express.
After Sheik was suspended in 1987, Boris Zhukov became Volkoff’s new Tag Team Partner and together they were known as ‘The Bolsheviks’, a team that lasted from 1987 till Nikolai turned babyface in 1990.
In 2005, he was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame by legendary announcer “Good Ol’ J.R.” Jim Ross.
† REST IN PEACE NIKOLAI VOLKOFF!
