Nikolai Volkoff, Cold Warrior And American Dreamer, Is Dead Nikolai Volkoff, Cold Warrior And American Dreamer, Is Dead

Lots of wrestlers cosplayed as commies during the Cold War. Nikolai Volkoff, who died over the weekend, was way closer to the real thing, and took his act far more seriously, than all the rest. He was 70 years old.
