Josip Nikolai Peruzović, known to WWE fans as Nikolai Volkoff, has passed away at age 70.
Best known for his dastardly, WWE Tag Team Championship–winning union with The Iron Sheik, Volkoff’s in-ring career spanned the better part of 40 years, which featured battles against the likes of Sgt. Slaughter, Hulk Hogan and Bruno Sammartino. As one of the greatest villains sports-entertainment had ever seen, Volkoff’s infamous rendition of the Soviet National Anthem before his matches made him an instant icon in the eyes of the WWE Universe as a Superstar they truly loved to hate. Jim Ross inducted Volkoff into the WWE Hall of Fame as part of the Class of 2005. (Courtesy of WWE.com)

We were very eager to work with him again before falling ill. We wish all the best and send our love to his late wife, and family! Rest in piece Nikolai!
We also lost our awesome little friend Mozart. He was the lovable pet and friend of Terri Runnels.

How disgusting can one man get?
We have featured independent wrestling referee Kris Levin on the Indy Supershow on numerous occasions. Whether it was his smug attitude, arrogance, lack of respect for authority, and his general existence there was always something that Levin did to ruffle feathers everywhere he worked. We did a huge feature on how Levin defended James “Rude Boy” Riley during his court battle where he was arrested, charged, and convicted of dozens of counts of pedophilia. Its one thing to be a friend, and it’s truly another to be a sympathizer. We also featured how Levin after Riley’s arrest and release on bail brought a minor to his house for dinner. Somehow, someway Levin has upped his game to a more disgusting level.
Kris Levin is now a referee for the company Impact Wrestling. He also goes by the name “Ref Riley”. Oh yes you read that correctly! Kris Levin has gone and used a Kayfabe gimmick name to honor his now registered sex offender friend James Riley. You honestly cannot make this up. We added a photo screen shot of Impact’s personnel Wikipedia page. We have also attached a Youtube video courtesy of the Social Injustice Warrior documenting this. I do hope Impact Wrestling knows what they have in the form of a human being that is the piece of garbage Kris Levin. If Impact is in total awareness of this, then someone needs to step up and say something about a company profiting off a child porn story. The whole thing is disgusting and like Levin needs to go away! We of course would attempt to contact Kris Levin about this but we have been blocked by him on all his social media outlets.
Check below the links to the show we have done regarding Kris Levin and his sympathy towards his pedophile friend James Riley.
Word from the damage365 Promotions camp is that they are hot on the trail of brand new talent for both Big Event (November) & WrestleCon NYC (April 2019). Right now everything is in negotiations level, but the interest of the talent as well as d365 has increased! A lot is riding on these 2-events as one ends the season, and the other is the mecca of conventions! damage365 Promotions has been getting emails, facebook messages, and tweets asking when they will be releasing the names of their upcoming talent. With so many events still to come (Volkoff signing, Abbey Laith, and Boardwalk Beatdown) president Kevin S. Nasta is said to be heavily working the phones to bring you the best and most relevant talent in the wrestling industry. More to come right here on d365promotions.com
With the weekend now in the rear view mirror damage365 Promotions completed its 8th Legends of the Ring appearance. It's been no secret that d365's head decision maker Kevin S. Nasta has expressed his displeasure with some of the going-ons of LOTR and how they have been conducting business. He also announced on his facebook page that he was doing a tell all show this Thursday to get it all out there. Today being Wednesday, there are a bunch of local wrestling fans who were anxiously waiting on this show! The powers to be of LOTR have reached out to Kevin in hopes to coming to a civil climax to this displeasure. With that said Kevin has elected to hold off this Thursday's tell all show in fairness to professionalism. How this meeting goes and where this puts d365 and their LOTR future will be put on hold until next week. Mr. Nasta has refused further comments on this matter.
We will see you all Thursday on the Indy Supershow 7pm EST on the
damage365 Radio Network, The Spreaker Radio Network, iHeartRadio, and YouTube! www.spreaker.com/damage_athletics.

Hello fans and I hope everyone enjoyed all their Wrestlemania festivities! I want to take this time to thank everyone who needs to be thanked as well as recap our Wrestlecon weekend!
We will start off with, I will never return to New Orleans socially. If it's not business related you won't catch me there, ever! Outside of the food and hospitality of the local businesses, New Orleans offers me nothing. Let's get to the main topic! Wrestlecon!
This year's event was hosted at the Sheraton Hotel on Canal Street in New Orleans! We brought in our 12 guests across 6-tables on Friday & Saturday! The event was great (better in Orlando) and we went on with business as usual. I want to first thank my guests
All in all we experienced some great food, local hospitality, spent some time with friends on Bourbon Street, and saw a large portion of the country. We amassed over 46 hours of travel and covered around 3,000 miles from New Jersey and back. Next year Wrestlemania will be in the state of New Jersey making it a little less hectic! We are already putting together our guest list for this event.
I would like to thank the Red Roof Hotel of New Orleans Airport and John's staff!
Buffalo Wild Wings where we took in Wrestlemania on Sunday!
The staff of High Spots & Wrestlecon
The Staff of the Sheraton Hotel
My fellow promoters that we got to enjoy some kick back social time with, MZ Promotions, RDP Promotions, Ultimate Starz, GTG Entertainment, EventWorn.com, Warriors of Wrestling, and others we had the pleasure of interacting with. The Good Doctor, Scott Wilder Promotions, Mania Marketing, Impact Wrestling, and others.
Thank you Shimmer Women's Wrestling for making sure the Knockouts Party went on despite the dishonest methods the promoter pulled after booking my talent. Kudos to Allie, Rosemary, Chelsea Green, Alisha Edwards, and Sienna for insisting that the party go on and not to penalize the fans because of one asshole promoter.
Thank you to my graphic team, Fast Copy Print of Keyport, and Central Jersey Automotive! They contributed in obvious ways!
Well we're home now and it's time to move on to the next event! No rest as this weekend former WWE Diva's Champion, Jillian Hall tours 3 states over 2 days on 4 stops! On To The Next!
We will have our Legends of the Ring announcement soon, as well as presales for LOTR & Boardwalk Beatdown coming May 1st.
Anyone interested in any autographed 8x10's of any of our talent or our 11x17 poster signed by all 12 talents please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We are happy to announce that replacing Saraya Knight at Wrestlecon is current Impact Knockout star Alisha Edwards. We are very happy to add Mrs. Edwards to the damage365 Promotion's family! The pre-sales page has been updated to reflect the sales of Alisha Edwards.
We will also extend pre-sales from March 25th to April 1st.
For the second straight year unfortunate circumstances have caused the cancellation of Saraya Knight (Julia Hamer) from appearing at a Wrestlcon. Everything was on schedule and ready when the airlines decided to cancel the flight due to the lack of passenger sales. At this point to re-book the flight it would cost in the excess of $2,500. We apologize for the inconvenience this has caused. We will honor Saraya Knight's pre-sales in the form of credit on any of out talents (except for Alundra Blayze & Eric Bischoff). If Alundra Blayze or Eric Bischoff is your selection you would just need to pay the difference.

The infamous official that helped the Hart Foundation defeat the British Bulldogs to capture tag team gold in 1987. He was accused of allowing illegal double teams throughout the match to the point where WWF President Jack Tunney striped Davis of refereeing duties. This was the birth of the superstar "Dangerous" Danny Davis. He teamed up with the Hart's in numerous feuds, that included the Bulldogs, Killer Bees, Tito Santana, and JYD. His next major appearance was in the 1987 King of the Ring tournament. Davis defeated Tito Santana and Junkyard Dog before being eliminated in the third round by Randy Savage, who went on to win the tournament. He continued many other feuds that included him aiding Savage against George "Animal" Steele, Koko B. Ware, and Jake Roberts. The "Dangerous" Danny Davis persona was eventually phased out, and in 1989, Davis was reinstated as a "probationary" referee. From this point on, his officiating style became objective, and the crooked referee gimmick was dropped completely. Following his return to refereeing, his highest profile appearance was after a match at WrestleMania IX where Hulk Hogan used a foreign object to attack his opponents in a tag team contest. Davis came to the ring from backstage and disqualified Hogan overturning the victory for Hulk Hogan. He worked for the WWF until 1995.
Danny Davis will join us on the Indy Supershow on Thursday March 8th to talk us about his career and his upcoming book. Tune in at 7pm EST.
