Damien Sandow on why he won't be a part of AEW
Damien Sandow talked about his current run in NWA and said that he felt that he would appear at AEW to defend his NWA National Championship. AEW is the fastest-growing new wrestling promotion, and would be a good chance for anyone to be a part of it.
However, Damien Sandow said that no one had contacted him from AEW and he felt that no one from AEW would ever contact him. He said that he had his own opinion on why he was not a part of AEW but did not reveal what it was.
"I don't think so. No one has contacted me from AEW, and I can't foresee anyone contacting me from AEW. Maybe I'm wrong. Maybe I'm not, but I have my own theory on that. It is what it is."
Damien Sandow went on to talk about how AEW was a good option for a lot of other wrestlers at the moment.
"There's plenty of other options, but I think the AEW product, they have so much potential, and I'm just so happy to have people like Thunder Rosa go there and highlight her talent. And I think AEW, it's providing a very good alternative, and they're doing some great stuff."
Damien Sandow went on to reveal that he was not sentimental and he did not keep trophies from his previous wins, including the Money in the Briefcase during his time in WWE.
"No, but the thing is, even if we could -- a lot of guys, when they win the titles and stuff like that, they like to keep the belt. That was never me. I don't even have my Money in the Bank briefcase or anything like that. No, they're all props. To me, they're not sentimental, but that's just me."
