Volkoff was such a great part of the Rock&Wrestle era, the Hogan era etcetera.
As a kid I knew I loved to hate the guy.
Hated him, but joined in with singing the anthem because that was fun.
Wasn't until much later that I learned more about him.
And it wasn't until the 2005 HoF that I learned who he really was. Wow. He told a great story and I loved every second the way he told it.
In short; he hated the Soviet Union but played Russian to 'stick it to them'.

Seemed like a great guy and he's definitely one of the most important characters in the 80s WWE.

Rest In Peace Nikolai and have fun singing with the angels.

I agree with Karlos here. If Kanyon came over from WWE and you didn't want him main eventing (although I don't know why, I wouldn't exactly say he's below D'Lo or AJ Styles)
