Monday, August 6, 2018
WWE Hall Of Famer Nikolai Volkoff was said to have been hospitalized with dehydration prior to his death but was released and reportedly passed away at his home, where his wife found him dead. He had also suffered a heart attack and was told that he needed open heart surgery, which he declined. Doctors then told him that he needed to get a stent put in his heart as a temporary fix, but that ultimately would need the major heart surgery anyway. Volkoff refused that as well.
