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.

While he has not been used very frequently on television, Hornswoggle is usually backstage whenever WWE films Monday Night Raw and Smackdown. Many were under the impression that he had been sent home because he no longer was being utilized with the Miz and Damien Sandow, a gimmick that was viewed as being hilarious by many backstage. The Wisconsin native still works plenty of live events for the company.

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.

In case you're wondering what WWE has planned with the story line involving Jimmy Uso and The Miz, the current idea being floated around backstage is that this will eventually lead to a heel turn for Naomi, where the diva would receive a big push and a potential title reign. Management has long been a big fan of her work, especially since she displays so much athleticism, desire and dedication. Her removal from Total Divas was said to be a tough choice.

The speculation going on backstage in WWE right now is that the Miz is stuck in the tag team division for the time being, as he has become somewhat a victim of success. Management had no clue that Damien Sandow was going to become this popular when the two of them first started working together. The company is not quite sure that the gimmick would work all that well if Sandow was relegated to just being a character at ringside instead of the ring.
