    This just proves a point. Guys like Vlad and David Smith and others could benifit from a tag division. It is so wrong the WWE has killed the tag teams in the business. There would be more interest and money generated by a tag division. WWE please wake up!

    how sad to see vladimir leave i personally will miss the odd couple of the double double e, i did find santino & vladimir to be an entertaining duo.

    i wish nothing but good luck to vladimir in the future.

  • John Cheesa

    If your dream job is to wrestle for WWE, then let this be a warning to you–you most likely will be misused and treated like garbage. Vlad deserved a little better than what he got. Good luck, Vlad.

    After Vince realised that Kozlov got no reaction in his title match, it was then they decided to just job him out in the end, he was given a win against the Undertaker when he was having his monster push

    which puzzles me with Vince is the fact he always likes the big men and thinks they are marketable, but time and time again it proves all they end up at some point is doing comedy stuff

    Big Show – All the stuff with the Guest Hosts
    Kane – Same as Big Show and also when he has all them backstage segements with the likes of Hogan, Rock, Booker T, Goldust
    Great Khali – Same as Big Show and because they realised he cant be that mobile around the ring
    Mark Henry (in his early years )
    Kozlov – all the stuff with Santino
    Mable/Viscera/Big Daddy V – mainly his Viscera days
    Snitsky – IT wasnt My Fault !!! and the whole yellow teeth stuff

    and im sure there has been more but cant remember off by heart

  • John

    Damn. Just 3 years ago he was being put over so strong. Then they made him a comical jobber and then released him.

  • renz

    haha sam dw we know!
    wat can u do feel sorry for the guy but he had a decent run

  • Sam Peters

    well this proves one thing

    Kozlov wernt gangsta enough to stay in the WWE

    (if you dont know what im on about, watch this weeks NXT)

  • Sammo

    How the might have fallen! A couple of years ago he was headling PPVs against HHH. This week he sees himself squashed by Mark frikking Henry and then released.

    He seems a likable guy, but he won’t be missed by the masses.

  • Alan Wake

    No! Now the Double Double E will never be the same!

  • wAnxTa

    Just when Vladimir had become more entertaining than Santino.

  • MR. A$$HOLE!!

    very sad with him having wins over HHH, Taker, Jeff hardy, and so many others yet he was basically made into a joke and im really shocked how JTG has survived 2 spring cleaning’s because shad was released last year and i thought he was going with him.

  • Symbiote

    Melina has also been released!

    I know that was coming… When Mark Henry “injured” him on tonight’s Smackdown. He deserved a push or better storyline they just treat him like shit. But that’s the WWE for you, SMH….

  • Snark Mark

    That is a damn shame. Vlad successfully transformed from a failed maineventer to an entertaining tv personality. Plus he had successfully immigrated to America. I hope good things happen for him going forth.

  • venom

    I hope Santino is next!!!!!
