WWE officials were not completely aware of the injury, so they allowed him to keep working shows. Upon finding out, they decided to send him back to the United States early, which is a good thing because his neck has not been at 100% yet.

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.
