Vladimir Kolzov is now a United States citizen. The WWE star was part of more than 400 others that took the Oath of Allegiance at the Tampa Convention Center today.
"Oh to be a U.S. citizen has been like a dream for long time. When I was raised and born in Russia, I had [a] dream to come to United States because U.S. [is a] land of big opportunity," Kozlov explained.
He has been a success in the ring and on the big screen.
"If you work hard, you can reach whatever you want," Kozlov said told MyFox Tampa Bay.
