Vladimir Kozlov Comments On Possible In-Ring Return
He hasn't stepped in the ring since 2012
Vladimir Kozlov hasn't stepped inside the squared circle since 2012, but The Moscow Mauler commented on a possible in-ring return during a recent interview with Ringsiders Wrestling.
"It's possible, it's possible because wrestling is getting bigger right now in the Russian market," Kozlov said. "It's extremely huge. So, that's why I just done first Russian-language pay-per-view for IMPACT Rebellion, because I was talking about my distribution for my movie and the same company, European-based. It's like [an] investment group, same advisory and they helped me for distribution [for] my project and they said, 'Oleg, because we work probably for some promotional material, maybe you'll work one of the biggest video platform in Russia RuTube and [it's] the first time they're doing live pay-per-view. You can be like a commentator for pay-per-view.'
"They said, 'You still have a big name in [the] Russian wrestling community so they're still interested in what you're doing and stuff like that.' I said sure. We get pay-per-view and pay-per-view becomes one of the biggest. But I feel like in the future if I have an opportunity just to join wrestling and start to wrestle again but combine it with movie because I spend so much time, energy, [I've] become like a actual stunt producer. I don't wanna give up this part. It's not easy either."
Kozlov returned to professional wrestling a few weeks ago and he was the Russian-language commentator for IMPACT Wrestling Rebellion. He previously wrestled in WWE from 2006 until 2011 and he had a brief run in the Inoki Genome Federation before he quit the industry.
