Damien Sandow Reveals Ditched Plans For WWE World Heavyweight Title Feud With Cody Rhodes

Sandow and Rhodes feuded after their split in 2013

The former Damien Sandow has revealed he was originally supposed to win the World Heavyweight Championship in WWE when he cashed in his Money In The Bank, before reigniting his feud with former tag-team partner Cody Rhodes.

Sandow won the World Heavyweight Championship Money In The Bank contract in 2013 at Rhodes' expense, knocking his teammate off the ladder. After a short feud, Sandow would try to cash in his briefcase on John Cena, but would lose the subsequent match on Raw.

Now known as Aaron Stevens, he has revealed that the original plans called for a successful cash-in and run as World Heavyweight Champion, before Rhodes chased him as his challenger for the Title. 

Speaking to SportsKeeda Wrestling, Sandow said: "I was supposed to win it and I was supposed to cash it in. Cody and I had our feud. Everything was great. I heard I was going to win the World Title and Cody would chase me. We had a whole wonderful thing planned, and, yea, it didn’t happen, but, whatever.

"I’m still very proud of the Money in the Bank match we had, and I think Cody said this before that it was one of his favorite matches, if not his favorite in WWE, and mine too.

"It has nothing to do with the fact that I won, but in Philadelphia, we had like seven heels and we made a babyface in that match. It was such a great moment.

"I remember when I was hiding out by Lilian [Garcia] in the pit, Cody had fought everybody off, and he had just a little bit of color, just enough to where you can see it, but they didn’t stop the match and all that cr*p. He’s climbing up, and I’m like, ‘Oh my God, this is going to work.’

"I slid in. It was magic and it took everyone involved in that match to do it. In my opinion, it was an absolute masterpiece."
