Give Damien Sandow this: He does not discriminate when it comes to his targets. One week after The Enlightened One mimicked The Chairman and The Boss, he spat in the face of Canada itself when he donned the guise of Bret “Hitman” Hart, while the WWE Hall of Famer himself was in the middle of the ring addressing his faithful … in Montreal, no less. Unfortunately, for all Sandow’s gumption, he should probably work on the follow-up. Hart didn’t suffer the imitation long and cold-cocked The Intellectual Savior of the Masses straight in the jaw, cutting his sermon short and restoring glory to the Great White North.
Catching a fist to the chin from Bret Hart was just the beginning for Damien Sandow, who caught a boot to the mush from Sheamus not ten minutes after interrupting The Excellence of Execution on his home turf. Sheamus, looking to keep his wits sharp in advance of his U.S. Title defense against Alberto Del Rio, got a stiff challenge in the form of his old rival, who pounced with a top-rope Elbow of Disdain. It didn’t take a screwjob to put “Sandhart” down, though, just Ten Beats of the Bodhrán and a big old Brogue Kick for, as they say in Montreal, the un, deux, trois.

Of all the personas Damien Sandow has adopted, this was perhaps his most audacious: Just a few hours up the road from WWE HQ, The Enlightened One threw on a suit and took on the guise of Mr. McMahon himself. However, “Mr. McMahondow’s” entry of Sandow into the Battleground Battle Royal for the Intercontinental Championship didn’t exactly endear Sandow in the eyes of a proper McMahon: Stephanie. In fact, The Authority’s resident queen delivered swift justice to the imposter in the form of another contestant in the Battle Royal: The Great Khali, against whom the would-be Chairman had (you guessed it) no chance in hell.
Boston’s favorite patriot, Damien Sandow, dressed as Paul Revere, didn’t get enough warning about the Rosebud invasion when he fell to WWE’s resident partygoer Adam Rose at Money in the Bank 2014.
Sandow, dressed as one of the heroes of the Revolutionary War, had a few choice words for the Boston faithful and triggered a “lemon alert” to bring out Adam Rose.
The leader of the Rosebuds got an early advantage, but things quickly turned on the Musha Cay native as Revere turned things around, at one point proclaiming “The elbow is coming! The elbow is coming!” only to get a two-count on Rose.
With his Rosebuds cheering Rose from a distance, Rose looked to change his fortunes for a short time and got the upper-hand on Revere with a series of right hands. Revere, obviously scouting his opponent, countered Rose’s bronco buster with an exploding clothesline from the corner.
With momentum at his side, Revere applied the Terminus on Rose for another two-count. With frustration setting in, Revere attempted moonsault from the second rope, only to find the canvas. Rose quickly took advantage of a stunned Revolutionary hero and took his foe down with the Party Foul for the three-count and effectively put out Revere’s flame.
So now we know what has spurred Damien Sandow’s recent revolving door of personas: Mocking the WWE Universe’s supposed belief that he’s not entertaining enough has led The Enlightened One to troll them despite himself. While his chosen identity for the night – Abraham Lincoln – certainly captured the attention of the Universe, it didn’t save him from a thrashing at the hands of Big E. Though, the former Intercontinental Champion seemed to have more animosity for Rusev and his earlier tour of degradation through Washington, D.C. The Super Athlete was more than happy to respond with a sneak attack on E, cranking in a backbreaking Accolade for good measure.
