AUTOGRAPHED BY NIKITA KOLOFF
Comes with Certificate of Authenticity.
Nikita Koloff, better known as the "Russian Nightmare," stormed the wrestling world as few others have in the history of the sport. Imposing, immovable, and unbeatable, Nikita left a trail of fallen opponents as he brought the Cold War that loomed over the globe into the ring.
From a hard-scrabble beginning to rings around the world, Nikita Koloff filled arenas, thrilled fans, and captured five world titles in the process. And then, when he was at the top of his game, he walked away from the sport.
This is not just the story of Nikita Koloff, the wrestler. It is the story of Nikita Koloff, the man. It is the story of a remarkable and unique journey. It is a story that, in many ways, is common to all of us.
"A Tale of the Ring and Redemption" captures a time of upheaval and change in the wrestling business that lay witness to the end of the age-old territories and the dawn of a new global era that made wrestling the most-watched sport and entertainment venue of all time.
Published by Crowbar Press, this story includes: how Nikita got into professional wrestling and transformed himself into a "Russian," the famous "Best of Seven" series he had with Magnum TA, the story of turning from hated heel to that of a loved babyface and teaming with Dusty Rhodes, being detained in Kuwait when Russian Embassy officials thought he had defected to the United States, stories of his time on the road with his peers, the tragic death of his wife that caused him to leave wrestling, Ric Flair's offer to give Nikita the NWA world heavyweight title if he'd come back to wrestling, and how Ivan Koloff was instrumental in helping Nikita turn his life around by bringing him to the Lord.
"A Tale of the Ring and Redemption" is the story of the career of one of the most prominent wrestlers who has ever stepped into the ring. It is the story of a man who has touched hundreds of thousands of lives with his own narrative. Nikita’s story is a story for everyone.
