Damien Sandow’s “Gordian Knot Challenge”

After weeks of watching Sheamus and Mark Henry engage in various tests of strength, Damien Sandow aimed to present a more intellectual exercise to the WWE Universe, namely the puzzle of “Gordian’s Knot.” He gave WWE mic-extraordinaire and former teacher Matt Striker the challenge of trying to untie that which most likely couldn’t be untied.

When Striker proved unable to complete the task, The Celtic Warrior emerged to attempt to overcome the quandary himself. After Sheamus also failed, Sandow presented his own solution – smugly producing a pair of clippers and cutting the rope apart. 

Here's how Sandow did it

Sheamus answered back with a congratulatory Brogue Kick attempt on The Intellectual Savior of the Masses. When Sandow ducked out of the ring, the Irish Superstar decided to demonstrate “Newton’s Law” to the WWE Universe, showing that whatever comes up must come down by launching Striker through the ropes and onto Sandow.
