Re: Damien Sandow Discussion
I don't endorse doing something just because worse guys have had it done for them either, but Sandow is one of the best things in the WWE right now (Is that an indictment of the WWE product as a whole? Take your pick. Either way it's a cold, hard fact.). He's not a joke like Dolph Ziggler or Jack Swagger, he has actual potential to be a star, he's got the look, the mic skills, the charisma, and even the experience. He's the type of person WWE should be seeking out more of.
If you give him the IC title, and I'm not saying NOW NOW NOW, but say, SummerSlam, or the PPV after, it establishes him to a degree that doing squash matches every week doesn't. Look at RyBack. Is he credible? Right now, no, because he hasn't beaten anybody who has any standing in the company, regardless of what he looks like. As far as being directionless, holding the IC title would at least give him feuds (and don't bring up Santino holding the US title, you know the IC title is the company midcard title and it's different), and hell, Sandow gets mic time every week and the fans are getting more familiar with his character. I already know his character better than I know Ziggler's and he's been on WWE tv for 6 years. His direction is better than a lot of characters already. If you want to talk about directionless, look at Cesaro, who does the same squash match routine as Sandow, but nobody knows who he is, he doesn't talk and he's constantly off SmackDown.
