Nikita Koloff (under that name and with full recognition of Ivan) bolts Crockett, comes in as a monster heel, main events after a few dominating tv squashes and wins the title in his first house show.


Meh, probably why I don't do fantasy booking.....

He wasn't int he business yet so I don't know if that really would've meant anything to anyone.

I thought the Sheik thing was perfect. the whole "USA!" element was a huge factor in the kick-starting of Hulkamania in the role of WWF Champion.

I agree. Those foreign heels pissed the old school fans off like no other.

Greg Valentine...had a solid reputation in the area, was coming in after Starrcade, hell - he could have come FROM Starrcade to beat Backlund.   Or, they could have elevated Don Muraco at that point as well, made him a main eventer instead of going for the IC title all the time.

Ivan Koloff has claimed that he was approached about beating Backlund and losing to Hogan. Koloff then claimed that he turned it down and that it was a big mistake.

Can't tell if Koloff is on the level with this one or not.

Koloff would have made an interesting parallel between Bruno and Backlund and I would have liked that one.

That said, they are all a bunch of lying, delusional werkerz who believe their own version of history. Getting dropped on one's head for 20+ years is not the best way to remember things.

I seriously doubt that Koloff was under consideration to beat Backlund.  Bruno being the only 2-time champion was still a big enough deal that I doubt the WWF would have wanted to have Koloff infringe on that, especially since neither reign was ultimately going to mean anything.

Kriss Sprules,  he was fresh off his big win over Cage Tyler, and also could have played the foreign heel.

Mar Cash would believe Uncle Ivan.

If Hogan had beaten Backlund, MSG would have exploded!
