Due to the controversy that was created by Hulk Hogan this week, Curtis Axel and Damien Sandow are being forced to drop their impersonation gimmicks, which was a key selling point for the duo. During a live event over the weekend, the two of them still were a tag team but they were dressed in generic clothing. They will more than likely be kept off of television until something can be found for them.

On the latest episode of Smackdown, we saw that Miz and Damien Sandow will be facing one another at Monday Night Raw to decide which of the two will get to keep the name and the likeness of the character in WWE. While it would make more sense for Sandow to go back to his original name, the belief is that Mike Mizanin will drop the match, so that he can take some time off to go film a movie with Paige. He's going to need a couple of weeks.

Before he started doing his gimmick of mimicking Miz, Damien Sandow had a character that was very similar to what Lanny Poffo used to do in WWE. Some fans were critical of that. During a recent interview, Poffo came to the defense of Sandow. He actually went out of his way to point out that Sandow was one of the nicest wrestlers he met during Wrestlemania week. Poffo said that Sandow did not steal his gimmick. He is fine with it.

In a match that was better scripted than the Royal Rumble, Big Show won the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal in the second and final match of the Wrestlemania kickoff show. Lots of excellent spots. Damien Sandow finally turned on Miz, but he was unable to overcome the Big Show to win the entire thing. Sandow was booked strong, but the audience was clearly disappointed when he was the last man eliminated.
