Big Damo talks a potential return to WWE.
In June 2021, Big Damo (formerly known as Killian Dain) was released from WWE after spending nearly six years with the company. Damo, who is the husband of WWE's Nikki Cross, quickly found success on the independent scene after his release, as he started to appear in promotions like PROGRESS Wrestling, DEFY Wrestling, and Black Label Pro.
After a recent report surfaced noting that Eric Young was set to return to WWE following his departure from IMPACT Wrestling, the rumor mill began to circulate about a potential Sanity reunion in the company. In a new interview with WrestlingNews.co, Damo said that he's focused on doing his own thing right now and that he doesn't wake up every morning hoping for that call from WWE.
“If you do, then you do, but right now I’m focused on what I’m doing. I’m focused on Progress Wrestling, I’m focusing on everywhere I’m going because I get to choose my own path right now. I get to choose everything I want to do, that’s why I’m not beholden to anybody, except for my wife in fairness. Honestly, if it happens, you know it’d be a conversation we could have and whatever else but at the end of the day, they let me go once before. I don’t trust them, I don’t believe… I don’t wake up every morning hoping for that call because listen, they had me there, I had the time of my life. I got to wrestle some of the best in the world, I got to travel with Eric [and Alexander Wolfe], some of the best experiences of my life. But you know, they ended that for their reasons and I’ve been able to have the time of my life this last year, so. I’ve been having the time of my life this last year. As you know, I’ve been able to say no to promoters, I’ve been able to do things that I wasn’t able to do for six years. More importantly, I’ve been able to get back and forth to home and like the realization that everybody is getting older and those opportunities are going to come a lot less and so, being able to pick and choose my own path has been incredible. But listen, if fans are desperate to see more Sanity, then come and see us at Progress Wrestling.”
In the past, Damo has noted that he is open to returning to WWE to be a coach after his in-ring retirement. Fans can learn more at this link.
