[4.0] "Solidish heel but not the best worker, the gimmick of being just an evil Russian man isn't special nor is it good"

[10.0] "Great heel/villain. He could pull it off very well. Being billed as a Soviet/Russian was something back in the day. He was decent in the ring. He was exciting to watch but was great at submission moves."

[6.0] "The most famed Russian who was actually Canadian, Ivan Koloff happened to get a lot of his notoriety due to the fact that he played the evil foreign villain character at a time when the WWE was looking for just that. He did little more between the ropes aside from brawling. He had the mean look down & was an intimidating character. There were other power men around at the time who were far more charismatic & much better wrestlers, but they couldn't be billed from Russia, so Koloff got the nod."

[7.0] "Though he wasn't the best in-ring worker, Koloff knew in-ring psychology and used it well. If the word "foreign heel" was in the dictionary, he would be the picture right next to it."

[8.0] "knew his psychology... but was an old man by the time we saw him on national tv. in his prime he was a believable opponent for bruno sammartino. i guess he went close to 300 pounds in those days. by the time i started seeing him in 1982 a decade later, he went around 240 tops... and he seamed old... so its tempting to say he wasnt a great worker. this guy was good though and the biggest promoters in the country felt comfortable main eventing him"

[7.0] "Ivan Koloff was a good professional wrestler whose lengthy career is admirable. While not the best worker, he was able to generate great heat as a killer heel, as evidenced by the famous reaction when he pinned Bruno Sammartino in the Garden. His later career and personal life went up and down, but he will go down in history as a great heel and an important part of North American wrestling history."
