Re: sandow or the genius

Sandow is fucking great, as The Genius was awesome back in the day. I give Sandow the nod in the sense that he's better at interacting with other wrestlers. His insults and facial expressions when parading how idiotic everyone else is are just sensational. But at the same time, The Genius had his poems that were just as good. Too tough to call.

Re: sandow or the genius

its a very close call but ill go with sandow.

The Genius always had the look of a pumped up wrestler under the costume and it made him more comical than believable...

Sandow just lookg like a naturally big guy who was blessed with good genes and pulls off the snobbish superior man look very easily.

Re: Sandow or The Genius

I'm going with the Sandow. I'm a bigger fan of The Genius. His material was just that. But he also had a great roster to work with. It's hard to fail with all that talent and great characters. Damien however, has little to nothing with but makes it entertaining inspite of that. A great example was the recent JBL& Cole Show. That episode was horrid until Damien showed up and saved it. I AM welcome.

Re: Sandow or The Genius

I was always a big fan of Lanny Poffo back in the day, but that was pretty much a young boy rooting for the underdog. It was a fun gimmick but pretty much served the point of keeping him relevant. Yes, I loved it and loved the frisbees. And I thought he did a great job.

But Damien Sandow is on a different level. It's a shame the Genius didn't have Raw (as it is today) to showcase his talents on, so we could have a genuine comparison. But I still feel Sandow has more upside, and seems more natural in the role.

Re: Sandow or The Genius

I think Sandow pulls it off better, although The Genius was fun back then as well.

Re: Sandow or The Genius

Sandow is pretty boss. I kind of feel like he's almost referencing the fact wrestling is fake with his interactions sometimes but on a level most of the casuals wouldn't pick up. Sometimes it takes a voice of reason to point out how fucking stupid some things are in the company and he gets heat for it at the same time.

Entertains us, gets heat from 98% of the fans in return, seems like a win win to me.
