Nikita Koloff

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.

Demolition

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.

Greg Gagne

Bob Backlund interrupts eulogy

A rather disgusting incident took place during the eulogy for Verne Gagne, who passed away late last month. His son Greg Gagne and Mean Gene Okerlund were the two key speakers at the funeral. For whatever reasons, Bob Backlund rushed to the stage, took the microphone and began cutting a heel promo. Many that attended the event said that it was ridiculously out of place and unwarranted. Backlund has received a lot of heat for the incident.

Brittany

Brittany return to TNA

While she may eventually do so in the future, as of right now, Brittany is not planning on making a return to TNA anytime soon. She is doing rather well on the independent wrestling circuit. The woman known as Santana Garrett was recently given the NWA version of the women's championship. She also holds titles in other promotions. Building up her name value and credentials on the indies is the best thing for her career at this moment.
