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.

Instead of continuing to milk one of the best gimmicks in all of professional wrestling, WWE has decided to pull the trigger on the split of the Miz and Damien Sandow. On the latest episode of Monday Night Raw, we saw the former firing the latter as his stunt double but keeping him around as his personal assistant. The match between the two could take place as soon as Fast Lane, but there are some backstage wanting it to take place at Wrestlemania.

Several people backstage in WWE have noted the irony in Damien Sandow becoming one of the hottest acts in the business. The gimmick of him being the stunt man for the Miz started because management wanted to bury him by having him be a comedic character that impersonated other wrestlers. Sandow impressed many within the company by committing to the character and figuring out how to make it succeed.
