Yes I remember him. He was a low to mid card in Portland but was on top for a bit in BC. He had a great 2/3 fall bout with Piper in Portland.

In the WWA in the late 70s, there was an Igor Volkoff. He was the same guy who was teamed with Sgt. Jacques Rene Goulet in the Legionnaires tag team. His ring name was Soldier LeBoeuf and he was Pvt. Don Fargo's replacement in that tag team.

He later went to the WWWF and was half of the tag champs managed by Albano as Pierre of the Yukon Lumberjacks.

When he came back to the WWA, he was Igor Volkoff, and teamed with Ivan Koloff for a short while. Volkoff held the WWA tag title with Roger Kirby, but quit the promotion while they were the champs and never returned.

BTW, he was very good friends with Women of Wrestling creator David B. McLane. When he left the WWA, McLane said he went back home to Canada.

Volkoff wrestled for Tomko starting in late '79 and stayed for much of the early 80's.Volkoff teamed with Tomko in late 1981 holding the Canadian tag titles with him. The tag team as all Tomko partnerships go went sideways and the two feuded through 1982 with Volkoff teaming with Bulldog Bob Brown and Dean Ho to battle Tomko's henchmen.
Held the Canadian title beating Moose Morrowski March 21/83 in
Vancouver.Used the figure four as his finisher. Igor was very over with the crowd and later teamed up with Wojo the BC hulk,battled the Warlords Easy Rider and Snake Williams in 1984.

Zarnoff Lebeouf wrestled as The Russian Stomper in JCP prelims in the late 70s before teaming with Scott Irwin (Eric) as The Lumberjacks in the WWF.

Igor Volkoff was a different guy than the guy from the Legionares - that person wrestled in the NW as Ivan Zarnoff, but was not the same wrestler as Igor Volkoff (confusing, I know) He (Zarnoff/LeBouf) may have also wrestled using the name Igor Volkoff in a different territory - not sure, though.

Zarinoff LeBeouf used the Igor Volkoff gimmick in Indianapolis and down for Gulas in Nashville,but was not the guy who used the same name up for Tomko.

On an installment of All Star Wrestling the announcer said Igor's greatest match to date was a win over Terry Funk in Puerto Rico in front of 18,000 in 1981 or early 1982. Anybody know if this was for real or a work?
