Former NXT titan Killian Dain - now going by Big Damo - made his All Elite Wrestling debut on last night's edition of Rampage.
Just a few days removed from the likes of Johnny Elite (f.k.a John Morrison) and Maki Itoh arriving on the scene in Joker form during AEW's Wild Card Wednesday episode of Dynamite, Tony Khan was at it again with the unexpected appearances.
Tasked with taking on "a giant" in preparation for his incoming steel cage showdown with Wardlow - one that will decide whether the "War Pig" will get his hands on MJF at Double or Nothing - the "Giant Killer" Shawn Spears was gifted precisely that in the form of the one-time Sanity member during last night's show.
A physical battle ensued, though it was only ever going to result in a Spears victory as his eyes now turn to the hulking one-time Pinnacle muscle. Clearly buzzing at the chance to show TK and the All Elite audience what he's capable of away from the WWE sphere, though, Damo took to Twitter shortly after his losing effort to thank the AEW President and All Elite crew for inviting him onto the broadcast:
“Thanks everyone for the crazy response! Also big thanks to @TonyKhan and the incredible team @AEW for having me on #AEWRampage,”
Thanks everyone for the crazy response!AdvertisementMay 20, 2022
Whether this will act as merely a one and done deal for The Beast of Belfast remains to be seen. But he evidently did his chances of eventually becoming All Elite no harm with a strong showing during said Houston, Texas taping.
