Killian Dain Reveals Original Plans Before He & Drake Maverick Tested Positive For COVID-19


During a recent appearance on the “All Night Long” podcast, former WWE NXT Superstar Killian Dain commented on being paired with Drake Maverick in WWE NXT, creative plans for them changing after they both tested positive for COVID-19, and more. You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

On his pairing with Drake Maverick in NXT and how COVID changed creative plans for them: “They up putting us together on-screen and I’m thinking it’s a rib. The writer at the time was like, ‘No, seriously, it’s coming from the top. It’s not a silly pitch, it’s something they want to try.’ Literally, from the first thing we did, they were laughing at us and enjoying it. That was the key. He was a lot of fun to work with. For me, I got to show range. If I hadn’t had that opportunity, it’d be very difficult to go into the world and try to be a different character. The crazy stoic character is tough to pull off in the Independents because it’s boring. It’s not boring on TV because the commentator can explain it. I’m glad we got to show some range before it ended because it was great fun for me. We had a bit of bad luck with the COVID stuff. I got it and then he got it, so we both missed these periods of time just as things were going well and stuff had to be rebooked, but that was the entire year.”

On original plans for them to have a program with Undisputed Era: “There was a period where we were supposed to do something with Undisputed ERA, we did one little thing with them, but boom, I have COVID. I don’t even have symptoms. That takes Nikki [Cross] off TV, she was doing a thing with Bayley. She didn’t get [COVID], but she had to isolate.”
