RIP to Brickhouse Brown, Brian Christopher, and Nikolai Volkoff. Nikolai was one of the most believable foreign heels of the kayfabe era. It's so nice to know that he was really a gentle man outside the ring who despised communism. I wasn't a fan of Grandmaster Sexay, but I admire Brian for making a name for himself without using his famous father's last name. I commented on Brickhouse earlier in this post when his death was wrongly reported. My condolences to their families. They'll all be missed.

IMO, heel Hart Foundation was the best tag team during the boom. Jim was a great guy the couple time I met him and glad he was game to be in one of my Advent Calendar promos (during which he was hilarious). Good thoughts go out to his family. Rest In Peace Anvil.
