Professional wrestling career[edit]

Wayne made his debut August 10, 2002, teaming with T.E. Brown against then VCW Tag Team Champions Greg Steel and Idol X.

Wayne has competed in WWE,[2][3][4] Ring of Honor,[5][6][7][8] and Full Impact Pro, where he was a member of The Heartbreak Express.[9]


Wayne made his Dangerous Adrenaline Wrestling Gladiators (DAWG) debut February 19, 2011, retaining the NWA Continental Championship against Vordell Walker. On May 14, 2011, at Squared Circle Wrestling Alliance in Eden, North Carolina, Damien Wayne defeated Chance Prophet for the DAWG Championship. He has gone on to defend the championship 50 times to date in Eight separate states, to challengers such as Julio Dinero, Johnny Calzone, DJ Hyde, Vordell Walker, Kahagas, Cueball Carmichael, Gunner, CW Anderson & Marty Jannetty.[10]

On November 2, 2012, Wayne was involved in an eight-way elimination match for the vacant NWA World Heavyweight Championship. The final two competitors consisted of Wayne and longtime rival Chance Prophet. NWA National Heavyweight Champion Kahagas then inserted himself into the match. From this distraction, Wayne was able to eliminate Prophet, but would go on to be defeated by Kahagas.

Damien's 1001-day DAWG Championship reign was ended on February 8, 2014 by Dirty Money on a NECW event in Beverly, Mass.
