DISCLAIMER:THIS INTERVIEW WAS SHOT 2 YEARS AGO FOR OUR JIM CROCKETT DOCUMENTARY. WE WILL BE SHOOTING A NEW 3 TO 4 HOUR INTERVIEW THAT WILL BE MORE IN DEPTH THAN ANY OTHER INTERVIEW WITH IVAN.
Ivan Koloff: The Russian Bear takes a look back at one of wrestling’s most hated villains over the last several decades. Learn about Ivan from his Canadian roots to how he became the Russian Bear we all know to this day. Ivan is respected worldwide for his contributions to the wrestling business.
Nothing in this documentary is left out as Ivan discusses his start in the wrestling business, being Red McNulty, becoming a hated Russian, and talks about the highs and lows his life had before becoming a born again Christian thanks to his nephew Nikita. Ivan reflects on what it meant to be at the top of the wrestling world by defeating Bruno Sammartino and being on top in every territory he went, to the pitfalls of drugs and the fast life outside the ring.
Ivan’s story is one of redemption and faith as he will tell you, “This wrestling isn’t fake.” Ivan has given his heart, soul, and body to the fans of professional wrestling. Now Ivan gives you the real story behind his life in an out of the ring.
Risks and challenges
The risk in this project is we will be attempting to interview several dozen wrestlers for this project and we're always at risk to what they want and availability. Meaning we need the funds from you to help meet their demands. Wrestlers are a different breed and are always asking what’s in it for me? So this is the main risk to the project. We have a proven track record in producing 5 successful wrestling docs in the past and we look forward with your help to continuing that success.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
