Damien Sandow was recently interviewed by Sports Illustrated about his memories of Money in the Bank. Here are the highlights:
How management designs the Money in the Bank match:
“That all depends on who is in the ring. The creative process for me was enjoyable and fairly easy. On the other end, I’ve had some singles matches with people that were like pulling teeth. Given the opponent, a singles match could be more difficult and draining than a Money in the Bank match. It really all depends on the talent in the ring.”
Needing to heighten his ring awareness for MITB:
“You have to have your ring awareness at an all-time high in a Money in the Bank match. Believe it or not, there were no injuries in my two Money in the Bank ladder matches. That speaks to the caliber of the men in that match. Once you start over-thinking during a Money in the Bank match, that can really hurt you. I can’t remember ever second-guessing myself atop the ladder, which is why I’ve been fairly injury-free, knock on wood.”
How he’s doing post-WWE:
“WWE was such a great part of my life, but I’m also looking forward now to my forward movement. I’m grateful for my time there, and I’m excited about my life moving forward. I miss the fans and hope they’re doing great.”
