Killian Dain was released by WWE on June 25 despite being featured regularly on NXT in a team with Drake Maverick.
Dain, who was trained by Robbie Brookside, made his wrestling debut in 2005 and was with WWE from 2016. Once his 90-day non-compete clause expires, he will be a free agent with plenty of options given his experience and the world opening back up.
Speaking on the All Night Long podcast, Dain discussed his future outside of WWE.
"For me, personally, I want to make sure that I can be like what the likes of Robbie Brookside was for me. That's what I want to be for the scene going forward. To have those positive influences who come in with that experience and notice the people with the drive and determination and push them. Robbie and Drew [McIntyre] really pushed me and knew I wanted it. On the scene right now, there are guys and girls who are [determined and desperate] and I'm hoping to help them find their next level. The only way the business improves is by learning from mistakes from the people before. We made plenty of mistakes and the key is to show them our mistakes and make them better," he said.
He continued by saying, "It won't be immediately, it won't be like the day after my 90 days ends. I'm a foreigner living in America so there are hoops I need to jump through before everything is good. As soon as I can, I will be smashing and all over the place. I'm very much looking forward to performing [in the United States] and performing in Europe. I'm hoping to get across to Japan at some point. That's a long-term dream of mine. There's definitely nothing set up in that regard. That's something I have a long-term goal for. I have a few things in the burner that I'm very excited about. I know how I want to be as a person going forward and I'm raring to go as a wrestler. I've spent the last year and a half barely wrestling."
Dain said that he continues to train and the pandemic era added years to his career as he was able to rest up his body by not wrestling multiple times a week.
Elsewhere during the interview, Dain discussed scrapped plans for him and Drake Maverick due to COVID 19. You can find his full comments by clicking here.
