DAMIEN SANDOW – ONE STEP UP

I’m giving Sandow a step up DESPITE his gimmick.

I think I have a hard time buying into over-the-top characters in the first place, so I’m going to do my best and not hold that fact against new and debuting superstars. I’m going to look past the gimmick and realize that they can all be overcome eventually, if Vince allows it.

AARON STEVENS has something I like. WWE clearly realizes it too giving him a second chance. He’s aggressive, can talk, and has a solid look.

His gimmick isn’t THAT bad, but I think most fans are more like me than not. It’s hard for us to give new characters a chance when they are a little out of the ordinary.

Whether or not “Damien Sandow” sticks long term, I hope Aaron Stevens does.
