Following the news that another wrestling legend had passed this weekend, as news broke that former WWWF Champion “The Russian Bear” Ivan Koloff died this week at age 74, many wrestling performers took to social media to comment on the loss.

Below are some of the tweets that were posted about the late, great Ivan Koloff.

I'm Sad To Wake Up And Hear of the passing of my very close friend the Russian Bear Ivan Koloff. We have been close Friends since the day I started in the business in 1972. We traveled the Roads all through the 70's and 80's together. I learned so much from one of the greatest workers in the History of this business. You will be missed My Friend. Rest In Peace
