It has been a week since WWE’s annual version of Black Friday. Whilst Wade Barretts departure was a shock, it was understandable given the rumours that preceded it. The most shocking release was Damien Sandow. Speaking to the Rolling Stones magazine Sandow revealed it was somewhat mutual decision and happy to move forward if WWE had nothing for him to do.
“When I was being called, I was thinking about the other guy – the guy who has to give a guy this news. I was just more like, ‘Oh, cool. Thank you for everything. It was awesome.’ It was somewhat mutual. I had expressed to them that maybe, if they didn’t have anything for me, then yeah, there are other guys who need a chance. I had already run that spectrum with the fans. A lot of times, in pro sports, you have egos involved. My ego was solely about getting the fans to react one way or another.”
Given the fans love for Sandow, particulary his role with Cody Rhodes and The Miz, what is next? Sandow is scheules to face Colt Cabana on June 11th for Global Force Wrestling. Other than that Sandow reveals his next steps.
“When you say full-time, full-time in the WWE is very different than full-time elsewhere. I am not going to rule out anything. I don’t want to limit myself. It’s not like when I finish up my ‘Thank You Tour,’ I’m going to be burning my boots. It is an aspect of performance, and if I can use whatever avenue to perform. If the fans want it, and they’re digging it, if it coincides with whatever project I decide to take, then I’m open to anything. It’s a very exciting time, and I’m not opposed to performing in a wrestling ring. You never know.”
