The guy was not on smackdown and worked an fucking dark match what are WWE doing there. Yeah Ryback boring Ryback stays on TV and yet Sandow is working an dark match, what the hell is going on this company is messed up I tell you. How can you taken one of the reasons I watch Smackdown off TV, I won't even probably watch Smackdown this week now that Sandow was not even on the show.

He has a lot of potential, but they need to build him up slowly. Too many times, the take someone new, push them to the moon then the audience is sick of them. A steady, slow build up is perfect.

I think he should challenge Santino for the US title, win it easily, then hold on to it for close to a year. Gives the belt a good worker, talker, and will help establish it's value.

His reign can end, then he can move up to the IC belt, then the major titles. This is really the way most stars should be built, but the WWE loves to push certain guys right off the bat, and then their careers go nowhere.

Look whats happening to Del Rio and slowly its happening to Sheamus too. WWE should push people like you explained. Like they did in the old days. But Vince has Cena now. Doesnt give a rats ass bout anyone else and it shows.

Of course, Sandow is already overrated. His gimmick's a good idea, but he's only okay at executing it. He's okay in the ring (though he hasn't even shown that much yet). The guy isn't bad, but around here he's already being lined up for the Hall of Fame.

Many members of the IWC overrate their favorites and bash the ones they don't like.

I like Sandow and enjoy watching him but that's really it.

He made the show, he just did a backstage segment with Foley and Ryder.

I'd like to see more, but as long as they're using him in some way, for right now, I'm fine. He doesn't need to have a match every week, the squash matches on SmackDown are getting tiring, too many people are doing it. Just don't take him off the show alltogether.

Oh come on, they're just excited about a character, played naturally, with some actual personality. It's refreshing to see someone who looks like they're using their own words, and not just reciting a script.

And it's just my opinion, but I think you've got your first point backwards. I think the gimmick is OK, and the execution masterful.

They're not "just excited about the character." You've got people running around wanting titles thrown on the guy already. I was fine with Sandow in FCW, but he never really awed me during the last year. Therefore, I'm not blown away when he's repeating himself every week on Smackdown either. At least he has a script though, which is more than can be said for most of the newer crop of directionless squash wrestlers.

There's nothing wrong with wanting a title thrown on him already. Nobody is suggesting that he should be WWE or World champion as soon as he debuts. He would make a fantastic IC champion right now, and the IC title means nothing, absolutely nothing. It's just a starting point to get his foot in the door. And there's been guys, vastly inferior guys at that, who've won the IC title on their debut match, a lot quicker than the time he'll be given a title.

The SmackDown roster is absolute garbage, it's no wonder people want a title on him when he's the only reason to watch the show.
