5 WWE Superstars who got over on their own
In WWE, winning the support of the crowd is one of the most important things to do and by no means, it is an easy task to accomplish. What makes this a daunting task is a fact that a wrestler is not often in control of his character. As a wrestler, you have to give your best with whatever you are given to work with.
While there have been cases of superstars failing to win the support of the crowd despite being given ample opportunities, there are a select few who won the fans over with little or nothing to work with. These superstars either garnered attention by the usage of social media or were just simply too good in the ring to be ignored. Here are 5 superstars who won the fans over, all on their own.
#5 Damien Sandow
Damien Sandow's career went downhill after failing to cash in on his Money in the Bank briefcase against John Cena. Despite being an exceptionally good on the mic and decent enough skills in the ring, Sandow was never pushed to the main event scene.
He was in fact stuck in the mid-card with one of the most bizarre gimmicks. From impersonating characters like Magneto and Sherlock Holmes to wrestlers like Shawn Michaels and Bret Hart, Sandow was doing all the things he wasn't supposed to.
Despite being just a comedic figure, the Intellectual Savior of the Masses struck gold as a stunt double of the Miz. As ridiculous as the gimmick sounds, Sandow outshone most of the wrestlers by just mimicking the A-Lister. However, his run as one of the hottest wrestlers on the roster was over after he split up with the Miz.
