Thing about Kozlov... He has the potential to be a really good wrestler, he has an Athletic Background, the size, strength and even agility. But his Selling sucks, he has no real personality, his promos are terrible and his reputation as a serious worker has been forever damaged by his pairing with Santino

When WWE get tired of him, I'm sure he can find appreciation in Japan. Look at Matt 'Giant Bernard/Albert' Bloom. He was terrible in WWE, but after a year or so in Japan, he became one of NJPW's top Gaijin's and an overall better Wrestler

He was destroyed by his gimmick and by the fact that he sadly doesn't suit the current WWE product. If WWE was more grappling oriented, he could have bloomed here and attract many fans. I hate this Cold War and Ivan Drago gimmick, it's out of modernity.

- language , personnality and promo : gimmick.
- moveset : gimmick
- in ring moves : he is athletic and agile despite his size.
- strength: he is strong.
- reputation : booking.
- is he over ? : no but he is sympathic.

I give him a B .

I would actually quite like to know the reason why, seeing as you say 'don't ask' in every one of these threads you make. I get the feeling there is no reason.

Also, C-.
The reason for these threads? I'm bored. Now that yu have your answer go to one of dusty rhodes' dance parties :3

He isn't bad, its just that his ring work is uninspiring. He is someone who would be better suited for shoot fighting of some sort or maybe heading to Japan. He just seems very lost trying to work a WWE style, and like he's over cautious

In his early days as a monster heel he was amazing and I marked heavily for him. But ever since he stepped foot in ECW he lost that spark and has been on a downward spiral ever since. He needs either a serious heel tag team or stable around him to help him get over otherwise I don't think it'll be too long before he's Future Endeavoured.
