[1990-11-05-UWF-TV] Ivan & Nikita Koloff promos

Recommended Posts

Good promo from Ivan, passable and generic stuff from Nikita. This is all pretty bubble-riffic as you'd think they could actually draw on real-world current events for this.

It seems that Abrams stole the script/notes from a 1988 Crockett promo featuring Ivan and Nikita and reproduced it for the current feud. I guess he wanted to pair wrestlers that fans just tuning in would know immediately in the hopes that they'd stay tuned, and I really can't fault him for that. Besides, as we've come to know currently, the "old ways" really aren't as dead in Russia as we'd like to believe. Maybe instead of being two or three years behind the times, old Herb was actually twenty-five years ahead!

 

Yes, the T-shirt Nikita's wearing is about five years out of date, but you can't deny that he looks more impressive on the shirt than he does in the interview. Sadly (at least from a professional standpoint), he'd never even come close to that look or that level of success again.
