Damien Sandow: 'TNA just seemed like the perfect spot for me'


After TNA teased that he had signed with the company yesterday, Damien Sandow (real name Aaron Haddad) made it official on Thursday in an interview with

"TNA just seemed like the perfect spot for me," Sandow said. "They are a growing company with a proven track record. I really believe that they have their finger on the pulse of what the audience wants, and they will gear their product towards that."

Sandow went on to say that he hadn't planned on signing with a company so soon, but he was impressed by his discussions with TNA management.

Sandow was released by the WWE earlier this year in a round of roster cuts, but has now found a new home in TNA. After being released, Sandow had made various appearances for independent promotions in the United States, as well as a couple stops overseas.

TNA begins a marathon round of tapings at the Impact Zone in Orlando, FL tonight and Dave Meltzer noted in this week's Wrestling Observer Newsletter that Sandow is expected to make his debut at the tapings.
