Former WWE Superstar Killian Dain made his return at the recent TNA Impact tapings.

The Northern Irishman originally made his name as Big Damo in Insane Championship Wrestling before joining TNA for a short stint in 2016.

A move to WWE developmental followed in June 2016, with a television debut coming that December as a member of the faction SAnitY.

A strong showing in the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal at WrestleMania 33, in which Dain finished third, preceded a main roster switch in 2018.

The Belfast-born star enjoyed limited success on SmackDown, eventually returning to NXT in 2019 where he battled the likes of Pete Dunne and Damian Priest before he was released by WWE in June 2021 as part of the company’s post-COVID cost cutting measures.

Appearances for AEW and NJPW came in 2022, with the 38 year-old returning to TNA on the 20th January TNA Impact tapings.

Returning to the Big Damo moniker, he was introduced by Frankie Kazarian to battle Eric Young as a ghost of the former SAnitY members’ past. Young would go on to defeat Damo in the bout.

Booker T Thinks TNA Should Focus On Themselves

With much positivity around TNA currently, including the big name recent signings of former WWE talents Nic Nemeth and Ash By Elegance, previously known as Dolph Ziggler and Dana Brooke respectively, pundits have wondered if TNA could overtake AEW as the number 2 promotion in the US.

Former TNA Tag Team Champion Booker T believes the company should simply focus on themselves at present instead of challenging Tony Khan’s promotion.
