Sandow is great. Like...really great. I really feel true star potential with him too which is awesome to see. Really good signing and gimmick to boot.
Perfectly said. I could see him becoming huge in the next 3-5 years if WWE really gets behind him. I can see it now:
CM Punk vs. Daniel Bryan vs. Damien Sandow
Beard vs. Beard vs. Beard
But yeah, I'm excited to see where he goes. I'm not gonna hold my breath on any new stars since WWE has a tendency to drop the ball on a lot of them. BUT I'm a huge fan, and hopefully he's in the main event at some point within the next 3 years. Hell, I really like the guy enough right now, I might actually change my 3-4 year old avatar for something Sandow related, and I've got a little idea.
I've got some bad news...

He was awesome on Smackdown last night. I see HUGE potential for him down the road. He's got a great character and he connects with the fans, getting heat pretty much any time he cuts a promo since appearing live (last night the crowd reaction seemed legit and not edited in). Along with his character, he also showed an aggressive side to his character which is always nice to see. The cross-armed neckbreaker was pretty sweet as well.
Anyone else not a fan of his in-ring attire? At 1:00 in this video. I realize people are going to say it's ''unique'' and it helps him ''stands out'' - but that's not always a good thing. He does need a distinguishing look to match his unique character and personality, I agree, but having him wear pink trunks and purple knee pads wasn't what I had in mind. It's also hard for me personally to take him seriously looking like that. The white boots are good though, and I figured they were going to give him perhaps dark blue trunks to match his robe.
Anyway I'm still very high on Sandow. A few personal flaws I don't like (current in-ring attire, current entrance music) aren't going to stop me from liking him. His character is awesome. His promos are great. With the way WWE are booking him, by having him not compete in matches with ''unworthy'' opponents, I could see him making his in-ring debut at the Over The Limit PPV, where he could beat someone semi-credible that could immediately put him on the radar. Ideally, I would like him to immediately start a feud with someone to help establish himself and separate himself from all the new talents competing in squash matches as of late.
