WrestlingINC: You were first discovered by Road Warrior Animal, right, when you were trying out for the USFL?
Nikita Koloff: Yeah, I graduated college and was training for a pro football tryout when Road Warrior Animal gave me the phone call. He was actually approached by Don Kernodle, who was Ivan Koloff’s partner at the time. They were the world tag team champions in the NWA. Don had approached Road Warrior Animal and, actually, what he asked was, ‘Do you know any big guys who wouldn’t mind shaving their head and becoming a Russian?’ Animal said, ‘I know just the guy right now.’ That’s how it all happened.
