Will Alexander Karelin become the new President of the Russian Wrestling Federation???
Is Alexander Karelin connected to the New Russians???(--as described in recent articles of the SUPER Wealthy and Powerful in Moscow...)
He is in the DUMA(Russian Senate), Russia's greatest Greco-Roman hero, and I noticed he was watching the Men's Freestyle very intensely(--of course, he's an intense person when it comes to wrestling...) and providing commentary for Russian TV...
With all the money support(--I heard that it's over $30 Million U.S. Dollars/Year)--- to the Russian Wrestling Federation by Suleyman Kariomov, the Dagestani Multi-Billionaire, I have to believe that becoming the president of the Russian Wrestling Federation(or being in the hierarchy...) would be a prized title for any champion wrestler in Russia...
Of course, where would this leave Mikhail Mamiashvilli(--via Georgia/USSR mulitple World and Olympic Greco Champ)???
Isn't Mikhail Mamiashvilli the Vice President of FILA???--- couldn't he just remain the vice president of FILA, and let Alexander Karelin become President of the Russian Wrestling Federation????
And what about those checkered shorts that Alexander Karelin was wearing to to Olympics??? I remember those being worn in the EARLY 1970's, and have seen kids today wear those in the Malls. What's up with that???
