Re: Damien Sandow is an Arab Middle Easterner

As someone already pointed out, his name is "Aaron." How that got mixed with a type of bird by the OP is beyond me.

Re: Damien Sandow is an Arab Middle Easterner

Sounds like an Israeli name to me.

The majority of crowds are far too eager to get involved with casual racism and the promotion of distrust towards Arabs considering the recent climate, I don't see the benefit to Sandow or WWE to perpetuate this ongoing xenophobia stereotype, I wasn't even around for it but why create ANOTHER Muhammad Hassan? It doesnt matter what they do with him, he will be pigeon holed with a gimmick like that sadly due to the political climate we live in and which would also render his career path fairly rigid even if WWE tried to make him likable.

He's also from Massachussets so he may be part Arab by blood but he is an American by birth.

Mahal and Khali are not Arab, they are Indian. Big difference. Probs best to never refer to an Indian as an Arab or else they'd probably slap you. And vice versa.

Re: Damien Sandow is an Arab Middle Easterner

What difference does it make where the guy is from?

I hear Sheamus is Irish, shall i break out the lynching mob?

It's annoying when people are singled out because of where they originate, borders of a country are an illusion. We are all the same.

And you're a wrestling fan... Quite surprising to see a wrestling fan with intellect. Haha. Most are ignorant, stupid rednecks that hate gays and Muslims.

Re: Damien Sandow Discussion

I hope Sandow will be able to pull his gimmick off on full base, he reminds me too much of ADR right now, cutting the same (good) promo week after week during his debut, giving the fans a lot of expectations which may ultimately lead to disinterest after a while. So far, he did a great job though.
