Killian Dain added to Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal


In addition to the previously announced Tian Bing, at least one more wrestler from NXT will be taking part in the 2017 Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal on Sunday.

WWE announced on Saturday night that Killian Dain would be making an appearance in the battle royal on the WrestleMania 33 pre-show. Formerly known as Big Damo, Dain signed with WWE in 2016 before eventually being given a new in-ring name.

Dain was added to the SAnitY stable alongside Eric Young, Alexander Wolfe, and Nikki Cross after he debuted on NXT TV. Those four were in action in an eight-person tag match in the opener of NXT TakeOver: Orlando on Saturday, with Dain getting the pin for his team.

This year's Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal will be the fourth edition of the match to take place after it debuted at WrestleMania 30. Cesaro, Big Show, and Baron Corbin are the previous winners.

Dain's addition to the match was announced in a video by Cathy Kelley:
