Big Damo Open To Returning To WWE As A Coach After Retirement, Still Has Line Of Communication

Big Damo (Killian Dain) was released by WWE in 2021 after runs in NXT and the main roster.

Damo was best featured as a member of Sanity alongside Eric Young and Axel Tischer (Alexander Wolfe). Since being released by WWE, Damo has wrestled around the independent circuit, popped up on AEW television, and won the PROGRESS World Championship at PROGRESS Chapter 137.

Speaking to Cultaholic, Damo was asked if he would ever return to WWE now that Triple H is in charge and bringing back talent from the 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," he said.

Damo noted that he hung out with Young during Starrcast weekend and teamed Tischer at PROGRESS Chapter 133.

He continued discussing a potential WWE return, saying, "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."

Damo said there is still a line of communication with those in WWE and he texted with Triple H after his health problems became public.

"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," he said before also praising the likes of Shawn Michaels, Fit Finlay, and Robbie Brookside.

Damo's wife Nikki ASH still works for WWE and is part of the WWE Raw brand.
