Canadian Wrestling’s Elite has quite the reputation with Canadian wrestling fans for not only providing the best in ring performers in the world today but also creating moments and memories with fans and the biggest legends and icons in the history of the industry.
August 1st-20th wrestling fans will be treated to an opportunity so rare it has never happened before!
For the first time EVER NWA/WCW legend and one of the biggest stars to ever compete for the organization and in all of the 1980s “The Russian Nightmare” Nikita Koloff comes to Canada!
The former NWA Television & Tag Team Champion displayed one of the most physically impressive physiques in the history of professional wrestling and at one point was one of the most hated men in the sport to eventually becoming one of the most popular stars in the history of the NWA/WCW.
The NWA Hall Of Famer’s feud and matches with Magnum TA are still considered some of the greatest of all time. From Ric Flair and The Four Horseman, Dusty Rhodes, Lex Luger, and Sting, Nikita Koloff was on the front line doing battle with all of these stars in an era many consider the best era for in ring professional wrestling there ever was.
