Biography | show moreshow less
Nikolai Volkoff, (1947-2018) was a Croatian weightlifter until he defected to Canada in 1967 at a Vienna weightlifting tournament. He was trained in Calgary by Stu Hart before moving to the United States in 1970. He's probably best known for teaming with the Iron Sheik and capturing the WWF (now WWE) Tag Team Championship from, and then losing it to, The US Express in 1985. Volkoff's in-ring persona was a Communist; teamed up with the Iranian Iron Sheik (and singing the Russian national anthem before each match), he became one of the most hated heels in the WWF. Interestingly, his persona changed to a America-loving "naturalized citizen" in 1990, when the cold war ended. This led to a feud with Sgt. Slaughter after the latter's turn from super-patriot to "Iraqi sympathizer" around the time of Operation: Desert Storm. He retired after becoming Ted DiBiase's whipping boy in the Million Dollar Corporation in the mid-1990s.
