WWE Pays Tribute To Brian Christopher and Nikolai Volkoff With Ten-Bell Salute At NXT Live Event (Video)

Brian Christopher

WWE has begun the process of honoring two former Superstars who passed away on Sunday — WWE Hall of Famer Nikolai Volkoff and Brian Christopher (aka Grand Master Sexay).

At Sunday’s NXT live event Phoenix, Arizona, both former competitors were recognized with a ten-bell salute before the opening match. The crowd stood in silence as ring announcer Kayla Braxton handled the proceedings.

Tennessee authorities confirmed Christopher’s death a few hours before the show.

WWE learned earlier in the day that Volkoff died at the age of 70 after being hospitalized for a variety of health issues.
