Members of a popular former WWE faction came together at a recent show in London for a shock reunion.
Members of WWE faction SAnitY reunite in London
At the recent PROGRESS Chapter 150 event, held at The Electric Ballroom in Camden, London, former WWE Superstar Big Damo would lose his PROGRESS Atlas Championship to Ricky Knight Junior, but did at least walk away from the famous venue on a positive note following a mini-reunion.
The Northern Irish Superstar competed in WWE as Killian Dain and formed part of the popular faction SAnitY. The group came together on the NXT brand and was led by Eric Young who joined forces with Dain, Sawyer Fulton, Alexander Wolfe and Nikki Cross.
The brainchild of Triple H, it is believed that the group was inspired by action comedy film Smokin’ Aces. Debuting in October 2016 they caused havoc on WWE’s third brand including an NXT Tag Team Championship run for Young and Wolfe after defeating The Authors of Pain at NXT: TakeOver Brooklyn III in August 2017.
Dain would replace the injured Fulton in the group in January 2017 and also competed in the Andre The Giant Battle Royal at WrestleMania 33 in Orlando, putting on a impressive display before being eliminated by eventual winner Mojo Rawley.
The group’s success would see them drafted to the main roster in April 2018, but their run on SmackDown did not hit the heights as hoped and the group was disbanded in 2019 and all members of the group barring Nikki Cross would be released by the end of June 2021.
Dain would take on the persona of Big Damo on the independent circuit and has carved out a successful run, including winning the PROGRESS Atlas Championship, the title lost to Knight Junior at PROGRESS Chapter 150.
Following his defeat, however, he was reunited with Axel Tischer who was previously known as Alexander Wolfe in WWE. The crowd pleasing mini-SAnitY reunion would lift the spirits of Big Damo after dropping the title whilst Tishcher tasted victory in the UK with a win over Mike Bird.
