Big Damo is open to a WWE return.
Big Damo, formerly known as Killian Dain, spent five years with WWE from 2016 to 2021. He was released from the company in June 2021.
Since then, Damo has appeared for AEW, NJPW and various independent promotions.
Speaking to Cultaholic, the former WWE star was asked if he would ever return to the promotion now that Triple H has taken over all creative duties and bringing back talent from his NXT days.
“Never say never. I know it’s a cliched response. I left for a reason, there was a difference in what they were looking for at the time. I aged out slightly from what they were looking for. Things have changed. Could that be something down the line? Maybe. Could be something where Sanity could return? Who knows. I love Axel Tischer, I love Eric Young, they became my brothers in the ring and outside.”
In regards to a potential WWE return, he said:
“Never say never. If it was a case of reuniting the band, who knows. In terms of where I am right now, I’m in a position where I can pick and choose my life and my career. I get to come and see my family on a regular basis. I never realized how important that was until during COVID, I spent two years not being able to see my family. To be able to pick and choose and get to work with fanstic companies like PROGRESS and a variety or companies like Black Label, DEFY, WrestleCon, Starrcast. I’ve had crazy experiences, stuff I never expected to do. To be able to pick and choose has been awesome. Being able to say no to work has been something that’s refreshing. You go for six years, ‘yes sir, no sir,’ that’s no problem, you’re a cog in the wheel, but when it comes to getting to choose what I can do and if I don’t fancy something, I don’t have to do it. That’s something I never thought would be possible. For right now, I’m very happy where I am. If a call happens down the line, then let’s hope it’s for the right reasons and for the right ideas. Who knows, when I’m ready to retire in five, ten, fifteen years, if they came and asked me to be a coach, absolutely. I was a coach before WWE, a coach during WWE, I got fired as a coach, I was coaching the young talent. It is something I’m passionate about. I really like helping younger talent, people who love this and have passion for this. I do my best to help and that’s something I could see myself doing down the line. When it comes to producing, I’m not so sure, but coaching, I could see myself doing.”
Confirming that there is still a line of communication with those in WWE, Damo stated:
“There’s always been contact because I got on very well. There is a lot of people in the hierarch there, from the very top to my immediate superiors who are incredible people. I’m very lucky. A lot of them are good people and great at their job. Hunter, I had a great relationship with him, I love working under Hunter. I hope the best for him and we were glad he survived. It was a hell of a health scare. I texted him when the news came out when he was healthy and he was very gracious in his reply, it was lovely. There will always be a line of communication there.”
Big Damo’s wife Nikki A.S.H. still works for WWE and will compete in the Women’s Tag Team Championship Tournament with Doudrop. They will face Asuka and Alexa Bliss in the first round on the August 15 edition of Raw.
