Sandow doesn't see losing to John Cena as bad...
- ThisIsInfamous.com recently interviewed WWE Superstar Damien Sandow. Below are some highlights:
Sandow on the highs and lows of creative booking: "Their frustrations and, I hate this term, but "push." What is a push? Every time you get a chance on television, that is a chance to win fans. That is a chance to create good content. A lot of the guys… "I'm not working in the main event." If they have a problem with that, you get yourself in the main event. If you're not, you make sure your match is the best match of the night. You can only go forward. I never saw me losing my briefcase to John Cena as a bad thing, it was a chance for my character to evolve. And evolve I did! I think, looking back at my career, when it's all said and done, that night will go down as one of the most pivotal nights in my career."
His thoughts on the emphasis of wins and losses in the WWE: "I think there isn't enough emphasis placed on what the WWE actually is. What the WWE actually is is the greatest show on earth. I've actually touched on this previously, but when you go to a WWE show, it's Grandma and Grandpa and everyone in between. When you are given a role on that show, it is completely up to the performer to do the absolute most they can with that role. From there, the sky is the limit."
