When Damien Sandow won Money In The Bank, I was pretty surprised. Because at that time, he really hadn't been doing much besides teaming with his Now Former Tag Team Partner, Cody Rhodes. When somebody wins Money In The Bank, you expect their status in WWE to go up, right?
That's not the case (no pun intended) with Damien Sandow. In my opinion, Damien Sandow has gone nowhere since winning Money In The Bank. I'm not exaggerating that. Damien Sandow has only won ONE MATCH on Raw or Smackdown since winning Money In The Bank. And also, not much has changed with Damien Sandow. He's been getting the same amount of heat he got before he won Money In The Bank.
Enter Cody Rhodes. Cody Rhodes was the last one knocked off of the ladder before Damien Sandow won the briefcase. But was the "runner-up" the one who should have really won? After all, Cody Rhodes has won 7 matches on Raw or Smackdown since he lost at Money In The Bank. And also, he has changed drastically. Cody Rhodes went from the heel with no direction, to a face who looks to be destined for greatness. It also seems like Cody Rhodes is becoming more and more popular as the weeks go by.
This poses the question of Was Damien Sandow the right choice to win Money In The Bank? I say yes and no. I say Yes, because we really haven't seen what Damien Sandow can do when he's given the main event spotlight. Maybe he would make a good World Heavyweight Champion. I also say no, because Cody Rhodes is really the only one in that match who's popularity has increased since then. But only time will tell.
