Nikoli Volkoff continues to wrestle some indy shots, even now and even though he is in his 60s. he appears to just not be slowing down in spite of age.

Before he was a dreaded Russian, he was oddly enough a Mongol, with a shaved head and weird hair tassel, as part of he Mongols tag team appearing in the Ohio/Michigan area and late into the WWWF (later WWF & WWE)

As Volkoff, he again received major pushes in the WWF bad it is here that he made varied showings in Arizona in the 1980s as part of the tour the promotion set up. He was seen in Phoenix and Tucson on a number of occasions, sometimes as a single and sometimes as a partner to the Iron Sheik.

In the west, he engaged in a feud with Ivan Putski to capitalize on the solidarity disputes between Poland and Russia going on in the real world at the same time.

When he semi -retired from wrestling some years back, Volkoff went into politics in Maryland, where he makes his home. He could not completely quit, however, as still evident today by some of the cards he appears on.
