Former wrestler Nikita Koloff, who during his career worked for, among others, for AWA and WCW, will be featured on the upcoming Lifetime reality show Preachers' Daughters, which, according to advance publicity, " tells the real -- and at times jarringly lustful -- stories of three preachers' daughters and their pastor parents' struggles to rein them in."
In the series premier, Kolby Koloff, the sixteen-year-old daughter of Nikita and his ex-wife Victoria, also a preacher, attends a sex lecture given by her mother as a prerequisite to getting her parents' permission to date. Her dad is surprisingly OK with Kolby's desire to date, according to the write-up in the New York Times, despite putting Kolby's would-be suitor in a headlock.
There are two other families featured on the new show: The Colemans, whose teenage daughter, Taylor, aspires to become a stripper or a porn star in order to be "free," and the Perry clan, which added a new member, now-11-months Eden, after then 17-year-old Olivia got into a car accident while tripping on acid, got her license suspended, and found out she was pregnant, all in the same weekend.
Considering the travails of the other two families, the Koloff storyline sounds tame by comparison. It's nice to know that for Nikita, there's a life after wrestling that wouldn't be fodder for a Darren Aronofsky movie (at least so far). Even though Preachers' Daughters clearly occupies the same genre of teensploitation as 16 and Pregnant and Teen Mom, it still may be the most positive portrayal of a wrestler on mainstream TV, well, ever.
What do you think, Cagesiders? Will you tune in at 10:00 tonight to see how Nikita and family are faring?
