If you had told me a year ago that Damien Sandow was going to drop off the face of the Earth after being one of the hottest things in early 2015, I would have never believed you.
Frankly, it doesn’t make any sense. Sandow was so insanely over with the WWE Universe that it’s crazy to think he hasn’t been a regular on television all year.
I look at Damien Sandow, and I see a charismatic goofball who is a good wrestler, has very good promo ability, and the essence of his character to be a face or a heel. When I look at Damien Sandow, I see a star and a potential superstar.
My point is that leaving him to rot in the back or on Main Event isn’t helping anyone. If Sandow isn’t going to be featured on Monday Night Raw or Smackdown like he deserves, he should go back down to NXT and have another run there.
Many are going to look at that as a demotion, but that’s not what it is at all. It’s using an asset in Sandow to help elevate the NXT brand even more.
The WWE Universe loves Damien Sandow, but it’s the NXT Universe that would embrace him with open arms. WWE is due to transition a lot of talent from NXT to the main roster; there is no reason WWE couldn’t slip a familiar face into NXT like Sandow’s.
The potential for new matchups is vast and wonderful to think about, he could bring NXT whatever it needed as a character, and it could bring him back into the fold without the pressure to reignite his career in WWE.
Simply put, the performer has far too much talent for WWE not to be utilizing it somehow.
