Damien Sandow followed The Miz and become his stunt double in WWE. He would go under the name Damien Mizdow. He made the act one of the most over things in WWE at that point. Unfortunately, WWE abandoned the act and that was the end of it.
Damien spoke to Ask Me Anything where he asked if he still spoke to Miz. This is what he said:
“We’ve always been friends in OVW we never had a cross word between us even when we were pre-Mizdow. You know everything else always fine, I had a great time hanging out with him. Were we like, super best friends? No, and you know what? We never really traveled together that much. You know he had his crew, I had mine, but we could always go to each other and I think professionally the timing issue that, is pretty magical.”
“I mean man, we just knew. That whole gimmick, you know people call it Mizdow, The Mizdow, yeah but there’s no Mizdow without Miz and we really did create something special, you know with the timing we had and just the fun we had was awesome and you know Miz deserves everything he has right now so I’m really glad to see him there doing well and [to see him] keep evolving as he’s doing, but staying true to who The Miz is.”
“To answer the question, sorry — I’d make a great politician, wouldn’t I? I totally talked for like 2-3 minutes and went on a diatribe and didn’t even answer the question. The original question: occasionally there’s a text, but usually you know if we see each other at an event like at [John] Morrison’s wedding. You know we picked up like we left off an everything’s great and I’m just really happy for him and his wife and his family and everything.”
It is indeed unfortunate that WWE never capitalized on the gimmick, since there was so much more that could have been done with it.
