RIP Ivan Koloff

Recommended Posts

Reading Meltz' obit, I'm shocked at how much money they left on the table with Ivan's WWWF title reign... they switched the belt to Pedro after three weeks when he could've run with it for months as the guy who toppled Bruno. Granted he did big business for them every time he came back, but there's wasted opportunities and then there's THAT.

I haven't read the obit, but I thought I read somewhere that the WWWF was legit concerned for Koloff's safety - afraid the fans would get revenge for Bruno.

Yeah they told him not to leave with the belt. In other towns they had him wrestle the second match without announcing him as champion.

Thats what Sempervive mentioned on the new pod. It's possible that ... you know, those guys from southern Italy, ... may have put word out that they might settle the score for their ... goombah.
