Damien Sandow on what Vince McMahon told him when he started copying The Miz, who’s responsible for the gimmick

Former WWE Superstar Damien Sandow recently joined X-Pac’s podcast X-Pac 12360. You can check out the highlights here below:

On who is responsible for the Damien Sandow character:

“There is no one I respect more than Rip Rogers. You know and in terms of the mind, that man has for the business. In terms of like just how he lays it out in just a simplistic way. And had it not been for Rip Rogers, I would have never been the intellectual savior because he, he just taught me how to simplify everything.”

On what Vince McMahon told him after he started copying The Miz:

“I remember Tyson Kidd of all people, who is a good buddy of mine and an awesome guy, goes, ‘did you just put the figure four on the invisible man when Miz did?’ I go, ‘Yup.’ He goes, ‘that was the greatest thing I’ve seen on the show (Monday Night RAW) in a long time.’ I just said, ‘Well you know what, watch next week.’

“After a couple weeks, Vince( McMahon) was like, ‘Well, I noticed you are mimicking Miz?’ ‘Yup.’ ‘Do whatever you want, if it gets too overboard, I’ll pull you back. And I just went, ‘Okay.'”
