HighSpots Releases Free Video Honoring Life of Ivan Koloff

PRESS RELEASE FEBRUARY 22, 2017

HIGHSPOTS RELEASES FREE VIDEO HONORING LIFE OF IVAN KOLOFF

Highspots.com and HighspotsWrestlingNetwork.com have released a FREE video in

memory of wrestling legend Ivan Koloff titled "The Russian Bear" Honoring the life of Ivan

Koloff.


Ivan Koloff, one of pro wrestling's biggest stars passed away on Saturday February 18 at

the age of 74 after fighting liver disease for a decade.

Ivan is best known as a Russian bad guy who did the impossible in Madison Square

Garden in 1971 when he defeated WWWF World Champion Bruno Sammartino in one of

the most shocking moments in wrestling history as it ended Bruno's 8 year reign as

champion. That match is a moment that Bruno will never forget.


"That night in the Garden when Ivan beat me I really believe that was a first in the history

of wrestling. Because people were so stunned that night there was a fear of a riot but it

was the complete opposite." said Bruno. "You could hear a pin drop. We had twenty-two

thousand people paralyzed. They couldn't believe it because as you know I had been

champion for eight years."


Ivan was also famously remembered for his role in Jim Crockett Promotions as "Uncle"

Ivan to his nephew "Nikita" and later in life Ivan shed his mean Russian gimmick to be

known by fans as a gentle man who put his lord and savior Jesus Christ first.

"Everyone knew Ivan as "Uncle Ivan" and I called him that as well but we here at

Highspots knew Ivan as a friend.


Ivan was someone we loved working with and enjoyed

hearing his stories about his career and life." said Michael Bochicchio, owner of

Highspots. "We wanted to honor the life of Ivan by sharing his stories and the stories of

others who knew him well. That's why we put a free video on our website

highspotswrestlingnetwork.com for everyone to enjoy.


We we blessed to work with Ivan one last time this past November as he shared his stories about

Dusty Rhodes with our cameras. Ivan deserves all the respect in the world from wrestling fans and

we want to show our respect by keeping his memory alive anyway we can."

Ivan Koloff passes away


WWE is saddened to learn that Ivan Koloff, best known to the WWE Universe as one of Bruno Sammartino's most bitter rivals, has passed away at age 74.

Koloff, nicknamed "The Russian Bear," quickly became a primary rival to one of the most beloved WWE Champions of all time, Bruno Sammartino. In an infamously memorable instance in WWE and Madison Square Garden history, Koloff crushed Sammartino's throat with his knee by jumping off the top turnbuckle. This act on Jan. 18, 1971, allowed “The Russian Bear” to cover the WWE Hall of Famer and score an astonishing three-count to become WWE Champion, ending the Italian powerhouse's record-setting seven-year title reign.

George 'The Animal' Steele, WWE Hall of Famer, dies at 79



George "The Animal" Steele, a pro wrestling icon and WWE Hall of Famer, has died at 79. WWE confirmed the news Friday.

Steele turned pro in 1967 and was best known for his run as a comical babyface attraction in the final years before his 1988 retirement. With his hairy upper body, bald head and green tongue, Steele became one of the most recognizable characters for the WWE -- then known as WWF -- during its national expansion in the mid-1980s, thanks to his penchant for biting open and chewing on the turnbuckle pads.

Steele spent his final years in Cocoa Beach, Florida. He revealed in his 2013 autobiography "Animal" that he suffered near-fatal bouts with Crohn's disease -- which affects the digestive tract -- throughout his retirement and had his colon removed in 2002. He began to share publicly about his declining health on his social media accounts, beginning last May.

"The Animal," who spoke in grunts on camera while portraying an imbecile during his final years, was long a paradox of the man outside the ring. Born William James Myers in Detroit, he moonlighted throughout his 21-year pro wrestling career as a teacher and coach at Madison High School in Madison Heights, Michigan.

Steele, who had dyslexia, earned a master's degree from Central Michigan University.

He coached football for 25 years at Madison and started the school's amateur wrestling program. He was inducted to the Michigan High School Coaches Association Hall of Fame in 1996. In 2012, Steele was honored by his alma mater when Madison renamed its football field Jim Myers Stadium.

In the 1970s, Steele largely performed as a diabolical wrestling heel, memorably feuding with champion Bruno Sammartino in high-profile main events at New York's Madison Square Garden. Steele's character became a "good guy" in May 1985 when he turned on heel partners Nikolai Volkoff and The Iron Shiek during a six-man tag team match on WWE's first "Saturday Night's Main Event" card on NBC.

Steele's most popular feud during the WrestleMania era came in 1986 against WWE Intercontinental champion Randy "Macho Man" Savage, focused on The Animal's obsession with Savage's wife and manager, Miss Elizabeth. The feud, which included a match at WrestleMania II, led to Steele's most iconic WrestleMania moment the following year.

In front of a then-WWE record 93,000-plus fans at the Pontiac Silverdome in Michigan at WrestleMania III, Steele was in the corner of Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat, who challenged for Savage's title. Late in the match, with the referee down, Steele pushed Savage from the top rope to prevent him from reinjuring Steamboat's throat illegally, leading directly to the finish.

Steele took part in a Battle Royal at WrestleMania IV in 1988, but remained outside the ring due the entire time due to a knee injury. He retired later that year after being diagnosed with Crohn's disease.

Former ECW, WWE Star Nicole Bass Passes Away At Age 52


Former ECW / WWE star and frequent Howard Stern guest Nicole Bass has reportedly passed away at age 52.
The following announcement was posted to Bass’ official Facebook account yesterday, revealing Bass had fallen ill and taken to the hospital before she passed:
Dignity and Respect.
2 things every person on this planet deserves.
2 things very important to Nicole Bass.
The past few days I, Kristen Marrone, have been posting to my girlfriends pages to try and keep her very personal life private. Rumors have been spreading around the internet about her health. A few days ago we didn’t know all of what was going on so I have been trying to keep it quiet until we had answers. Nicole values her privacy and I Respect that. Before anyone tries to take the story and twist it up and make it ugly I want to put it out there in a Respectful way.
A few days ago Nicole got very sick. She was brought into the hospital and they did everything they could to help her. I have been sitting here with her in the room 24/7 since she got here making sure she was being given the best possible care. Today we learned that there is nothing else that can be done.
Nicole was an amazing woman. Strong not only on the outside but inside as well. Beautiful soul and kind heart. Many people knew Nicole but few ever got close enough to know the REAL woman that she was. I got to be one of the lucky few. Not only was she my soul mate and my girlfriend but she was my best friend, my teacher and my business partner. I learned many valuable things from her and created many beautiful memories in the time we had together.
I would like to keep her page open for her loving fans and friends to share their photos and memories.
I just ask that you treat Nicole with the dignity and respect that she deserves.
Thank you to everyone that has been reaching out to and helping me through this very difficult time.
Nicole, I love you. I will always love you.
I will always be yours and you will always be
