As mentioned earlier, WWE Hall of Famer Nikolai Volkoff died today at the age of 70. Volkoff had been in the hospital days before due to dehydration and other problems.
Below are reactions to Volkoff's inheritance from Triple H, Ric Flair, Iron Sheik, Natalya, Big E, and others.
Nikolai chatted to fans in the @WWE universe as a competitor, but backstage he was a gentle and thoughtful family man. Our thoughts are with his family in this difficult time. https://t.co/ItHtCpA1KU

Nikolai Volkoff was one of the nicest people I've ever met in this industry or anywhere else. Always brought a smile to my face to see him when we were in Baltimore. Condolences to His Loves

I made many road trips with Nikolai Volkoff. Since we only lived 15 minutes from each other.
I learned so much from him. He was one of the friendliest people I have ever met.
