Some conflicting reports are going around in regards to what WWE has planned for Miz. Some are saying that he will be written off on Monday Night Raw during his match against Damien Sandow, who is trying to gain the rights to the name and likeness. However, there are also reports floating around that the former world heavyweight champion is still scheduled to work the upcoming episodes and the Extreme Rules pay per view.

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.

Many within the industry are now questioning the decision by WWE to not let Damien Sandow win the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal at Wrestlemania, especially now that it doesn't appear that they're doing anything special with Big Show. The belief is that Sandow would have had a ton of momentum going into his feud with Miz, and that would have brought even more attention from an audience that is already interested.

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.

The belief right now is that Miz and Damien Sandow are going to be splitting soon, but some believe that the front office might be hesitant to break up an act that has been so entertaining. The two performers have developed quite the chemistry, especially in regards to comedy. The big problem for WWE, though, is that they have already started pulling the trigger on that split by increasing the dissension. Going backwards might be difficult.

As of right now, it looks as if Damien Sandow will split from The Miz at Wrestlemania during the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal. A feud between the two is expected to ensue. While Sandow will be receiving some sort of a push because management was aware of the reaction that he was receiving from the audience, very few expect WWE to push him very far up the ladder. The belief is that Sandow will not get too close to the main event.
