Ivan Koloff recovering from auto accident

Marc Ash reported on

"It was widely reported on Sunday that the Russian Bear Ivan Koloff had been injured in an auto accident. I called Ivan personally & got the details.

Ivan is in good spirits but in substansial pain as he broke 6 ribs & fractured his sternum. He also has developed some fluid in his lungs from the accident & that is a very painful thing. He said the doctor told him the pain wouldn't start to subside for aprrox. 1 month. He would appreciate your thoughts & prayers in his recovery.

His wife was also in the car & sustained bumps, bruises, & whiplash but otherwise OK"
