Damien Sandow’s fall, Reigns Rumbles and Other WWE Thoughts

by

It is now official - sadly Damien Sandow has become the laughingstock of the WWE. He has become the jobber of all jobbers. He has become the classic impersonator and he is creating a following like Barry Horowitz, but he is certainly not in the same league as the legend. The case of Sandow is one of sadness as last year, he was challenging John Cena for the World Heavyweight Title a year ago and that his battle with Cody Rhodes was epic and short lived.

This is just proof of two things. The WWE is destroying Sandow’s career, and there are too many superstars on the roster so someone has to fall toward the bottom rung.

What you see is what you get with Sandow – when he is truly wrestling. A technical mat man who reminds me a little of Nick Bockwinkle and Lanny Poffo rolled into one. The WWE could ..click here to read more , ,

Damien Sandow goes Down the Road Well Traveled in WWE

by

Damien Sandow has recently been complaining on WWE programming about not being allowed to speak. He’s been interrupted in recent weeks before he could finish and on the May 16 edition of Friday Night SmackDown, his mic was cut as he was speaking. Apparently, someone behind the scenes in WWE does not want Sandow talking in front of fans.

And here we go again.

Before anyone begins criticizing, let me be clear. I have no issue with Damien Sandow. I’ve actually been a fan of his work for quite some time now. I was one of those guys that did not want to see him cash in his Money in the Bank briefcase against John Cena, mostly because I knew he would not go over.

But then again, he did have a nice showing against John and I was hoping that would lead to bigger things for him. As it turns out, I ..click here to read more

WWE Wrestler of the Week: November 30th- December 5th, 2013

by

With just one week until the one year anniversary of this column, I would like to recognize two wrestlers for the award. After discussing both, I will provide my thoughts on which should ultimately be the winner this week. They both became number one contenders this week. They are Damien Sandow and Natalya.

This past Monday on Raw, Sandow defeated Dolph Ziggler to become number one contender for the Intercontinental Championship. The matches between Sandow and Ziggler the last few weeks have been pretty pointless up until now. Sure, they mainly dealt with the theme of that episode of Raw, but why should anyone care about this feud? Two former Money in the Bank winners finally squared off with something on the line. While Sandow winning made sense in the fact that he is the heel, a match between Ziggler and Big E Langston would also be intriguing based on their ..click here to read more ,

Damien Sandow was robbed, Stephanie McMahon and Other Pro Wrestling Thoughts

by

The WWE all but admitted last Monday night that it did not know what to do with Damien Sandow and his Money in the Bank contract. In a shrewd move, the Intellectual Savior of the WWE did something many could not do with more experience – he took John Cena past the brink.

I personally am a huge fan of Sandow’s work on the microphone and in the ring. He represents the good and bad of what professional wrestling has become lately. He could be the biggest heel on SmackDown, if given the chance and has the ability to take a title from anyone on the roster on any given night.

Sandow is in a bit of purgatory. He was involved in the hotly contest feud with Cody Rhodes that was abruptly stopped to give Rhodes a needed push with his family angle.

He did not have a clear cut rival, where someone ..click here to read more ,

WWE Wrestler of the Week July 26th – August 1st, 2013

by

Oh you didn’t know!? You better call somebody because it’s time once again for WWE Wrestler of the Week. This week a number of superstars and even divas were in contention for the award. The Bella Twins had a great week, which featured the debut of Total Divas. Christian also had a great week with wins on Raw and SmackDown. However, the winner this week is someone whose loss at Money in the Bank may have turned into a win for him. This week’s winner is Cody Rhodes.

On the July 26th edition of SmackDown, Rhodes was not in action. However, he made multiple appearances and was the last man standing at the end of the show. As you may recall, his former best friend Damien Sandow pushed Rhodes off the ladder to claim Money in the Bank this year. Sandow was in action on SmackDown against the other Money in ..click here to read more ,

The Cody Rhodes/Damien Sandow WWE Feud Takes Wrestling Back to its Heyday

by

There are few things in the WWE that have caused me to tune in with excitement lately. But I do have to say that the recent events between Cody Rhodes and Damien Sandow has become must see television in my household.

I am amazed not only in the nonchalant, carefree attitude of Sandow and how it works so well within the company, and I am equally amazed at the way Rhodes has become a great orator and has been accepted so fast in the WWE Universe as a face.

The fact two great performers are playing off of each other has made this the “must see” event of SummerSlam, along with Daniel Bryan.

Yes, you read that right. I did not add John Cena to that mix. Bryan is a far more superior performer in this scenario, which will make the current WWE champion look lost. I am hoping Cena will sell for ..click here to read more ,

Curtis Axel, Arn Anderson And Unresolved WWE Issues

by

Although I was not a fan of Curtis Axel before his transformation into the wrestling character he is today (he was Mike McGillicutty as part of the Nexus), I have to say the current Intercontinental champion in the WWE does intrigue me due to his overwhelming potential.

The third-generation star will never be the wrestler Randy Orton or The Rock have been over the years and he may never attain the same stature of his father, Curt Hennig, but there is a belief by myself (and probably other wrestling writers) that Axel has a solid future in the WWE, if only for a short shelf life.

Another thing hit me as I was watching Axel last week and during the Money in the Bank pay-per-view event — could Axel and Arn Anderson’s careers mirror each other?

Anderson was the greatest wrestler to never capture the World Title in the NWA and WCW. He ..click here to read more , , , ,

WWE Wrestler of the Week: July 12th – 18th, 2013

by

This week, WWE crowned two new Mr. Money in the Banks. Well, one Mr. Money in the Bank and one Sir Money in the Bank. However, considering the results of SmackDown and Raw as well, there is a clear winner of WWE Wrestler of the Week. It would be difficult to have a better week than one of the Money in the Bank winners. At the same time, only one winner stood tall on both SmackDown and Raw. This week’s winner is Mr. Money in the Bank Randy Orton.

On the July 12th edition of SmackDown, Orton and Sheamus squared off in the final match before the Money in the Bank pay-per-view. Although the match ended in a no contest thanks to Daniel Bryan, it was the Viper who stood tall at the conclusion of Friday night. This occurrence mimicked the previous Raw when Bryan stood atop the ladder at the ..click here to read more , ,

Damien Sandow wins WWE MITB briefcase, but Cody Rhodes is real winner

by

In a few strolling moments, we all became Cody Rhodes fans. After what was an amazing night for the WWE, there are so many questions left to be answered. Where do you begin after seeing the best pay-per-view of the year for the company?

If you are scoring at home, give this an “A,” and hope that the next month moving into SummerSlam will be as hot as it is here in the Florida sun? What happens now with Sandow and the World Heavyweight Title? Here are a few scenarios of how this could play out.

I don’t think the idea is to have Sandow cash in right away. He has been brilliant of late and has gotten a real push from his matches with Sheamus. But I see this working more to Rhodes advantage than anything else. While Sandow will pursue the WHC, the title his best friend’s father held, here ..click here to read more ,

WWE Wrestler of the Week: May 3rd-9th, 2013

by

Welcome to another edition of WWE Wrestler of the Week! This week, the winner went 3-0 this week with victories on Smackdown, Raw and Main Event. However, two of those victories were over the same superstar. This shouldn’t come as a surprise due to WWE’s recent booking of repeated matches each week, but it is still a bit disappointing. This week’s winner is “The Viper” Randy Orton.

On the May 3rd edition of SmackDown, Orton squared off against the Intellectual Savior of the Masses, Damien Sandow. Last week, Orton was facing Sandow’s partner and best friend in Cody Rhodes. Logic would say that Orton and some partner were feuding with Team Rhodes Scholars. However, Rhodes was nowhere to be seen as Orton defeated Sandow in typical fashion.

Orton and Sandow didn’t stop on Friday night. The two squared off again on the May 6th edition of Raw. The outcome was not any ..click here to read more , , ,

WWE WrestleMania 29 Thoughts and Recap: Inside The Wheelhouse

by

This past Sunday I was able to live out most every wrestling fan’s dream by attending my very 1st WrestleMania at MetLife Stadium. The atmosphere & excitement was like no other and I highly recommend it to any wrestling fan that is or has contemplating going to the “Super Bowl of Wrestling.” With that said I thought I’d figure to give some my thoughts on the 29th installment of WrestleMania:

- The Miz def. Wade Barrett

Not a bad opener to start off WrestleMania and I completely understand the time constraints of it being on the pre-show. Therefore it wasn’t as good as some of their recent RAW matches but it got the crowd on the right foot with a Miz victory. It’s nice to see two stars with a ton of potential, be pushed up and down the hierarchy of the WWE only to make their climb back to the top.

WWE WrestleMania 29 Results: Cena Wins, Brock Loses

by

It was the old WWE regime that ruled WrestleMania 29. The Rock returned and electrified the crowd, Triple H and Brock Lesnar had an intense fight, but it was  The Undertaker with CM Punk that stole the show in one of the most star studded WrestleMania pay per views ever.

You didn’t buy the WrestleMania 2013 edition expecting surprise  winners. We all knew how it was going to turn out. You watched it expecting to see the most exciting WrestleMania of all-time. While it may not go down as the best ever, it was certainly one of the most memorable top to bottom from the modern era. In regards to the overall show you won’t find much better.

John Cena pinned The Rock to win the WWE championship. The crowd was much more into this match in the open than anything else on the show. It definitely had a main-event vibe to ..click here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,
