Most of you will remember Ukrainian-American Pro Wrestler Oleg Prudius as 2008-2011 WWE Superstar Vladimir Kozlov, who was billed from Moscow, Russia.

He first appeared on IMPACT Wrestling TV in 2021 as a Russian commentator for Rutube and was first seen on screen at Rebellion 2021.

In March 2023, Oleg reunited with his former WWE Tag Team partner Santino Marella on an episode of IMPACT Wrestling.

Santino joked that he couldn’t say his name because it was copyrighted by WWE, but on October 12th 2023, Prudius returned to IMPACT assist Dirty Dango (fka WWE Superstar Fandango) in a 5-way match.

Dango pinned Jake Something to earn the number 20 spot in the Call Your Shot Gauntlet Battle Royal at the IMPACT Wrestling Bound For Glory 2023 pay-per-view.

You can watch it below:

Vladimir Kozlov’s biggest title accomplishment of his professional wrestling career, was winning the WWE Tag Team Championship with Santino Marella by defeating Heath Slater & Justin Gabriel in a fatal four-way tag team elimination match on the December 6th 2010 episode of WWE Monday Night RAW.

They held the titles until they lost them back to Slater & Gabriel at the Elimination Chamber 2011 pay-per-view.

Kozlov also defeated The Undertaker clean on an episode of SmackDown once.
