Chris Van Vliet of WSVN-TV spoke to Damien Sandow for a new interview recently. You can check the interview in full above, and submitted highlights below.
Is he done with wrestling forever?
"Right now I'm really just trying to focus on acting but that doesn't mean I'm never going to step in a ring again because let's face it, everyone says I'm done, I'm done and everyone comes back and I'm just not going to be that guy. What if I do get an itch some day? I don't want to niche myself into saying I'm just an actor. No, I'm me. I'm trying acting and digging it but that doesn't mean I'm going to deny my past."
Is he bitter about how things ended in WWE?
"I don't harbor feelings of 'Oh this should have happened.' No. Whatever happened, happened. That's the way it is. Hey, good luck, thank you very much and it's just time to move on. You can't direct all of this emotion into either a business or individuals and think 'Oh they should have done this' because you'll just eat yourself up over it and it's not worth it to me. I'm having way more fun now and my life is way more bizarre now than when I was wrestling."
On people who say he looks like Elias:
"That's so funny and I met him once, I think I was in the Performance Center and he said 'Everyone says I look like you' and I said 'Well I hope you can do better with it than me.' From what I've seen of him, and I don't watch the product that much, he really is talented and I'm really happy for him."
