Nikita Koloff in Rocky 4

One of the most memorable roles in movie history was almost played by Nikita Koloff. The former NWA star revealed that he was one of the three finalists to play the role of Ivan Drago, the main antagonist to Sylvester Stallone in Rocky 4. He stated that he was flown out to Los Angeles for one final audition. However, studio executives decided that it would be best to go with Dolph Lundgren because he was not as big as Koloff.

Nikita Koloff in Demolition

Back when Barry Darsow decided to leave the NWA for WWE, he was told that he would be dropping the Russian gimmick and adopting what we now know as Demolition. He invited Nikita Koloff to make the jump with him and even told him of the new character that he would be portraying. Koloff felt that it seemed like too much of a Road Warriors rip off that he was turned off on the idea. He decided to remain loyal to the company that gave him his start.
