Big Damo Clarifies His AEW Status Following Debut

Could we see The Beast of Belfast back in AEW?

During an appearance on this week's Two Man Power Trip of Wrestling podcast, Big Damo discussed his recent debut for AEW and whether or not there are plans for him to return to the company. 

Describing the experience of working for AEW in general, he said: 

"Honestly, AEW had all the production and all the pomp and circumstance without the walking on the eggshells and the difficulty with everything else.

"It was like, totally without the anxiety, which was very, very unusual, very different, and it was full of familiar faces. It was awesome. I have to admit that".

With regards to being brought back in the future, Damo said: 

"Everybody there was so enthusiastic, so you never know. If it happens, great. If it doesn't happen, then at least I had a cool experience".

"So for me, I wasn’t sure if AEW was ever going to be on the table because they were the one company who never really got in touch when I first got released. I had heard maybe it was because I was having status issues when I first got released. But at the same time, you just start thinking, well, I'll go on, I'll do whatever I can elsewhere, and maybe that opportunity can come one day".

Big Damo was released by WWE (where he wrestled as Killian Dain) on June 25, 2021. Since then he has wrestled for a number of companies in Europe and the United States, including New Japan Strong. 

His sole AEW offering to date was a quick loss to Shawn Spears on the May 18 episode of Rampage.
