See our interview with Ivan Koloff here: http://placetobenati...an-bear-ivan-koloff/




Parv, Pete and Kelly interview Ivan Koloff about his long career, covering everything from his early days in Canada, beating Bruno Sammartino for the WWWF title, working in New York, AWA, IWA, WWA, Florida, Georgia, and Jim Crockett Promotions.

Ivan had a legitimately great career, and even though the interivew is almost two hours, we only scratch the surface. If you are interested in knowing more head over to Kickstarter and help fund the planned documentary by Michael Elliott: www.kickstarter.com/projects/124452he-russian-bear
