Former WWE star Big Damo (Killian Dain) has given his honest opinion on the wrestling world, calling it a fickle industry.
On the It’s My House podcast, Damo argued that wrestling is all about popularity. Stating that he doesn’t take anything personal inside the ropes, Damo said:
“It’s a fickle industry, there’s just no way around it. Like, somebody who’s popular in a territory one day isn’t always going to be popular in that territory, there’s always gonna be somebody else. So attach that to wrestling and any sports and athletes.
“I’m a huge Man United fan and we’ve had guys who are our top guy, the guy we were all behind like Wayne Rooney, and then towards the end of his United career, he started becoming almost a villain for the United fans just because that’s just the way it goes. So when you attach that to the likes of wrestling, you might get your chance. you might not get your chance. But your name, one day, it’s going to come up and you just have to take it not personally.
“I do not take it personally, but I got texts and emails from people who were in charge and I was like, you know, wow. I was blown away, like completely humbled by some of the people I grew up watching my entire life who said such wonderful things.”
Damo was released by WWE towards the end of June. The former SAnitY member has since revealed what it’s like to work for Vince McMahon, compared to working with Triple H.
On the topic of the Wednesday Night Wars, Damo also confirmed that NXT talent used to watch AEW backstage.
