I'm loving this guy for some reason. His expressions are priceless. Like when his music first hits, the crowd is booing like hell. Then he looks into the crowd and shakes his head in dissapointment. So funny.

Sandow for President!!!

Sandow almost has a Golden Age quality to him. That's a compliment. The promos are excellent, and the heat is good. I wonder how he'll do in his first couple of feuds. I hope he doesnt get the usually WWE heel treatment, but actually goes over. He could very well become a top heel, if booked right, and it would be very entertaining.

I see a ton of potential in the guy. Can see him main eventing easily.

I'm loving his character so much, and he definitely has the potential.

Looking forward to his future years in WWE.

Because of the theme he's coming out to, he makes me think of HHH when he first came into WWE.

In 5-10 years, might we be laughing at how Sandow used this theme and how far he's come since then?(similar to what people have said bout HHH)

Thank you, Damien Sandow.

I love that his debut push is running parallel to the heated Intercontinental Championship feud between Rhodes and Christian.

Christian should carry that championship to Summerslam and drop it to Sandow.

I like how they seem to be setting up a little feud for Sandow with Tyson Kidd.

I don't. The last thing he needs is to feud with a fucking jobber.

I doubt that's what it is, though. It was probably just a way to give him a segment without repeating the squash routine since Brodus, Ryback AND Cesaro all did it on the same show. Doing 4 would've been straight ignant. Doing 3 was bad enough.

I agree about the IC title, though. I said he was the next IC champion the second Christian won it, it just seems too obvious that a new, great talent who's a perfect fit for the IC title debuts at the same moment when Christian, the perfect midcard put over guy wins it.

Well, by "little feud" I'm thinking something along the lines of McIntyre feuding with R-Truth for about two or three weeks in the first couple of months of his run in 2009. It's just something to occupy him as he establishes himself on the roster with a semi-credible figure (Tyson Kidd only being "semi-credible" solely due to his in-ring abilities--he'll ultimately simply put Sandow over, but I can see him getting a couple of licks in just to make the put-over more meaningful).

You're right, though, the timing was perfect for Christian re-joining the roster and winning the Intercontinental Championship as Sandow debuts the same month on Smackdown.

Well, as long as it only goes that far, it wouldn't be too bad....I guess, but there's better uses of him. I still don't think that's what WWE is doing. Like I said, I think it was just because the squash match routine would've been completely beaten into the ground on that show, so they took a different direction. I don't know. Do they even care that much to think about it? Who knows, I'd like to think they do though considering Sandow, being the only guy of the 4 that can actually talk was the one they chose to put into a non wrestling segment.

I don't even think "semi-credible" would apply to Tyson Kidd. Casuals don't give a shit about wrestling ability, they probably don't even realize Kidd's a good worker because they just don't analyze shit like smarks do. They already had Sandow beat Ezekiel Jackson, I don't think Tyson Kidd's gonna do any good for him.
