Re: Damien Sandow and Ryback should form a tag team

I'd rather see Sandow just tear through the midcard as IC Champion before he gets a boost up to the main event. The tag team division hasn't been relevant in any way since the days of Edge and Christian.

This idea can work, though, provided they handle it the right way. They can't just throw the two together and expect it to work, they need Sandow controlling/brainwashing Ryback in some way. Ryback does the work, Sandow gets the wins, etc. Down the line, this leads to Ryback turning on Sandow after he realizes that he's being used. It's a classic storyline.

Re: Damien Sandow and Ryback should form a tag team

I already had a thread explaining why these two men should feud, and it was far to brilliant for anyone on here to argue against. Having them as a tag team is about the dumbest idea floating around on this forum. Just saying.

Re: Damien Sandow Discussion

Now this guy is probably single-handedly responsible for keeping me interested in the WWE. After last weeks RAW I was seriously considering taking a break from wrestling for a combination of reasons (such as: the departure of my favorite divas, Ziggler always losing, no Christian or Barrett, same old shit Cena etc). And I pretty much did take a break from it, by completely ignoring last weeks SmackDown and tonight's RAW and some of you may of noticed I haven't posted in about a week. However, after just now checking out Sandow's debut on YouTube (I was very anticipated for his debut anyway and I loved his promo vignettes) I must say I really like his character. It's unique, it's fresh, it's eye-catching and I'm intrigued to where WWE will take it. His gimmick of hating on alot of the things in modern society, I like, and his praise for things of the past gives him a nostalgic feel about him that I also like. Just the little things I noticed, such as the way he holds the mic, his tone of voice, and the way he addresses the crowd - was great - and it will really help him stand out amongst the bland roster in the WWE today. Disappointing that he didn't wrestle, as I want to see what he's like in the ring, but I'm very much into his character so far.

A squash match isn't going to tell you anything, anyway. Just watch some FCW on Youtube if you're interested in his ring work. I haven't really given his ring work much of a look, because I don't care, but yeah, I'm sold already, his character's great and he's doing some good stuff on the mic. He's gotta go back to the New World Symphony, though. Much as I have an appreciation for the meaning of the song, being a Christian, Hallelujah just is not meant for wrestling music. At all. And maybe that was the whole idea, to make him that different, but I just don't like that. NWS is perfectly fitting for this character and has a lot of impact and gives you a better impression of him.

That's got to be fixed, and if they can change the Corre's theme in 70 different variations and change Tensai's after like 3 weeks, they can certainly do this for the good of his character.

In my opinion he shouldn't compete in squash matches. Too many guys right now do them (Clay, RyBack, Cesaro) that's it's overdone. If WWE truly valued Sandow, they would put him immediately in some feud with a recognizable star and defeat that star easily - to really establish himself in the WWE. Similar to how Del Rio debuted and feuded with, and defeated, Rey Mysterio. Of course WWE don't value Sandow nearly as high as Del Rio, but he should feud with someone like Ryder (which is what some people were speculating when he was referring to Ryder in one of his promos).

At 0:40 in this video it sounds like he was referring to Ryder:



And yeah I will probably check out out his FCW stuff now. Normally I never watch anything FCW related, because I don't want to spoil the surprise of a new debut for me. But seeing as he's already debuted now, it's alright I guess. I agree with you about his theme music, that's got to go, and it's perhaps the only criticism I have on him.

Re: Damien Sandow Discussion

You'll hate his theme music even more when you hear his old one, lol.

I agree, though, he shouldn't do a squash match, and he probably won't. I guess that was his whole deal with Bateman, he wants a more dignified debut than that. I'm just saying if he had wrestled, it wouldn't have given you a clear picture of his abilities because squash matches rarely, if ever do. Obviously you can tell if a guy is just fucking awful from a squash match, like Tensai, but if you're great or good or decent, your abilities can't be measured in 2 minutes, especially when the opponents job is to not fight back.

Re: Damien Sandow Discussion

I wish he did New World Symphony. He's still great but themes help me connect with a star. I could picture myself just marking with him coming out to NWS.

Thank You Punk.

Re: Damien Sandow Discussion

ahhaah it's just a debut. I wonder how he'll do in the coming weeks. He looks promising.
