For the past several months, WWE has been releasing several Superstars and also members of staff from the company, in a move that continues to get criticized by fans and pro wrestlers alike. This included the likes of stars such as Killian Dain as well. This certainly came as shock to fans.

Since his release, he went back to his old name of Big Damo. During his time in WWE, Damo teamed up with Drake Maverick and was very over with fans as well. It was said that he was released because he wasn’t Vince McMahon’s type of guy.

Damo also previously stated that the pro wrestling industry is very fickle. A few months after his release, Big Damo is set to make his debut in New Japan Pro Wrestling this month.

Big Damo will be squaring off against John Skyler at Strong Style Evolved on March 20. He will be competing on a card that will feature Jay White, Jay Lethal, and many other competitors.

Jay Lethal vs. Ren Narita

Big Damo also previously stated that his WWE release was just the kick he needed to complete his bucket list. While Damo is no longer working in WWE, there is no doubt he will not stop doing what he loves and that is wrestling and that is what matters in the end.
