Whatever it is, it's inexcusable and can't continue. There's nobody else on the roster who's more ready than he is for a major push, not even Barrett. WWE's future is incredibly bleak if guys like Sandow can't catch breaks and human toxic waste like Swagger get pushes, and they don't even drop the push when they fuck the company over. WWE is in utter fucking shambles.
I loled here. Swagger's not that bad though! Anyways, I think this is another case of WWE being hindered by politics or someone's belief that Swagger can make more money (somehow) then Sandow or Bryan.

Re: Why Isn't Sandow Being Pushed?

1. It's Wrestlemania season and he hasn't got any real feud going, and is unlikely to at this point.

2. As good as he is with his current gimmick it doesn't lend itself to getting a sustained push.

3. His gimmick will only get him to midcard glory, but both titles are being held by heels, and ones that could main event with their current gimmicks, so circumstance doesn't benefit Sandow.

Precisely. It's not just Sandow, it's everyone outside of the main-event bloc. It's a vicious circle - they don't get feuds until they get over, and they can't get over because they don't get feuds. So they're stuck doing nothing forever in midcard hell - Kofi, for example, hasn't had anything resembling a feud since his programme with Randy Orton four years ago.

WWE needs to start writing for the midcard and giving them a chance to shine in actual programmes. Perhaps then they'll create new stars instead of inertia and stagnation.

Because they rather push bland and boring talent like Dolph Ziggler and a passed his prime Big Show.

See, you mentioned Kofi there; I think that if it isn't a face Rhodes that Sandow will feud with, it should be Kofi.

Sandow could really 'shoot' on Kofi saying that he has done nothing meaningful in years and that he shouldn't have to wrestle him (ala when he first debuted). Kofi gets really pissed off and it gives him a focus to prove to Sandow that he is worthy enough to face him and beat him. Kingston goes on a mini-winning streak whilst Sandow plays down his achievements, before the two finally have a match on PPV. It will make both of them look a lot better than they do now as Kingston gets some wins and Sandow looks good because he has people queueing just to get a shot at him.

That's all well and good, but Kofi sucks. So I'd rather not.

No, he really, REALLY is. There can be no debate on this subject.

The only acceptable reason for him getting a push is that every person who feuds with him automatically looks 500x better by comparison just because they're somebody other than him.

Re: Why Isn't Sandow Being Pushed?

Bcuz Vince pushes people he has a boner for... Look at Ryback other then being a muscled freak, he does nothing... no mic skills, legit looks like gonna cripple someone when he wrestles... but gets a push.

The point is you have to give wrestlers something at some point or they'll never achieve credibility. Look at Ziggler, a MITB winner, a good wrestler, but right now no one other then his marks would say he is credible. Every week he looks like a bitch.

They could've had Sandow start slow, win the US belt, and moved him to the IC. But right now I don't know of anything that can legit help him...
