As reported by PWInsider, WWE Hall of Famer Josip Nikolai Peruzović aka Nikolai Volkoff has passed away at the age of 70. Nikolai was released from the hospital just a few days ago after being treated for a series of issues including dehydration. He was inducted into the HOF back in 2005, after a career that lasted more than three decades.

I just met him at the June LOTR and I had him sign the Mongols entry. He told my girlfriend and I a story about how over the Mongols were. Very nice man.
