Big Damo recalls pitching his own big change to his appearance during his time in NXT and the angle around it that didn’t end up happening.
Big Damo appeared on Wrestling Observer Live to promote the upcoming NJPW Strong: Mutiny taping on April 10, 2022, and discussed pitching a big change to his appearance after transitioning to the main roster.
Damo reflected on having become highly aware of his hair after seeing matches filmed with the high-quality lighting and cameras at WWE, saying of ultimately deciding on his shaved head look:
“For me personally, I wanted to shave my head for a few years. I think actually, I go all the way back to [NXT TakeOver] WarGames and that’s when I first realized, ‘Okay, I’m a little bit thin on top.’ I never really realized it was that bad but okay and then as the lighting gets better, the cameras get better, suddenly a bit more obvious to me and I remember I actually pitched before I went up to SmackDown, I pitched that maybe we could do something where you know, shave my head or whatever and they were like, ‘Ah, maybe we could have Lars Sullivan shave your head bald or whatever.’ It never really came to fruition and fast forward a couple of years when finally it was time, it was probably like two days later and I was like ‘okay, I’m gonna go for it now’ because it’s the only thing I could focus on. I didn’t really like watching myself wrestle anyway. I always kind of force myself out of habit, but the only thing I could focus on was the dome. It was time to get rid of it [Damo laughed].”
Big Damo is currently scheduled to appear for NJPW taping on April 10 taking on Tomohiro Ishii.
Damo was also recently announced for Defy Wrestling’s next show, Wild Ones, where he’s scheduled to square off against AEW’s Brody King for the first time ever on April 23, 2022.
Elsewhere on the Defy card for the Seattle, Washington show include Jon Moxley vs. Tom Lawlor, Schaff vs. Thatcher, and Swerve Strickland against a yet-to-be-announced opponent.
