#5 Vladimir Kozlov
Vladimir Kozlov was last seen in WWE almost a decade ago. He joined the company in 2006 and worked his way up the developmental circuit.
The superstar had some good rivalries during his time in the company and even got a few world championship opportunities. However, his most notable work came in a tag team with Santino Marella. The two superstars won the WWE Tag Team Championships together.
While Kozlov looked like the perfect heel, he never got a run with any of the company’s singles titles.
After leaving WWE in 2011, Koslov decided to put his wrestling career behind him. Instead, he decided to move into the acting world and started working as a stunt double and extra in Hollywood.
Koslov has featured in several blockbuster movies such as Wolf Warriors 2 and Marvel’s series The Punisher. He has also served as a Stuntman for John Wick 2 and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's Fast & Furious 6-8.
Kozlov could have made it big in WWE with his current physique
Kozlov is in much better shape now than he was during his time in WWE. He has leaned out over the years and looks more like a wrestler today than he did during his time in the company.
The former WWE Superstar recently joined Impact Wrestling as a Russian-language commentator. His debut at the 2021 Rebellion event was his first wrestling appearance in eight years.
