Nikolai Volkoff, Soviet Villain in the Wrestling Ring, Is Dead at 70

So often in wrestling, the "heels" are the ones you like; usually because they're over the top.
I didn't realize that he originally defected from Soviet-era Yugoslavia, by going to the Canadian embassy. He trained with wrestling doyen, and patriarch of the Hart dynasty, Stu Hart in Calgary.

I met some of the old guys--and the villains were real nice guys out of the ring, away from the cameras & spotlight.
