Damian Mackle is a professional wrestler, currently working for WWE, in their developmental territory NXT, under the ring name, Killian Dain, where he is a part of the SAnitY stable, along with Eric Young, Nikki Cross and Alexander Wolfe.
Before his arrival in NXT, Mackle worked on the independent circuit under the name Big Damo.
Mackle has also wrestled for several independent promotions in the United Kingdom and Europe.
Mackle has always been a keen sportsman, playing university level rugby, as well as playing goalkeeper for the soccer team. He also played basketball and competed in judo.
He says that he first became interested in professional wrestling due to the ‘Larger than life’ characters and the face paint, citing Sting and The Ultimate Warrior as his inspirations. He also cites Fit Finlay as having a profound influence upon his wrestling style.
Mackle is a staunch supporter of English Premier League soccer team, Manchester United, as well as NBA team Orlando Magic.
He grew up in a country that was filled with violence and sectarianism, and, although he says that the area he grew up in was a mixed area, he is still conscious about keeping any political affiliations away from his public life.
