The bruising superstar known in WWE as Killian Dain says he’s got options as he looks for his next landing spot. After being released by WWE in late June of this year, the international wrestling star is looking to make an impact elsewhere.

Damo appeared on Busted Open Radio, where he spoke to Mark Henry and Ryan McKinnell about his future prospects. He made clear that while he wants to make an impact in Europe first, he certainly plans to return to the United States in short order.

“Well, I can’t give the game away completely, Ryan. But I’ve been in contact with almost everybody. That’s probably the best way I can kinda put it. Honestly, my goal for the next year minimum is to try and get everywhere, wrestle everybody that I possibly can. I’m fit, I’m healthy and I’m raring to go. I’m at that position in my life, I’m 36 years old. I’ve been blessed with how my career has went so far but now I want to get out there and do everything I possibly can before I can’t [laughs].”

“Honestly, the best way I can answer it is at first I’m gonna get back to Europe. As I said I’ve been waiting to see my family and I wanna try to pay it forward to the guys who are back there right now because a lot of people helped me get to this level, and I wanna be able to try and give it back a little bit first. And then I’m gonna do my very best to get all across the nation here as best I can.”


There hasn’t been a better time in recent memory to be a free agent wrestler looking for work in the United States. While AEW heads up the competition for WWE, other options include Impact, Ring of Honor, New Japan Strong, and even larger independent promotions such as MLW and GCW.

Time will tell where Big Damo ultimately winds up. He also said he’d be happy to manage his wife, Nikki A.S.H. if the role would arise. It seems like Damo is in a great place!
