Tallguy's Master Bath Remodel

Hello all, I bought John's Kerdi Book 10+ years ago and it got me through my first shower, and this is my go to site for advice on anything tile.

Anyways, doing another bathroom and I have a section of wall that will be tiled with 12X24 in a dry area. The wall was semi gloss paint with a heavy knockdown texture. I sanded it pretty well down into the knockdown texture. I had some thinset left over in the bucket doing Kerdi, so I decided to skim coat it to sort of fill in the texture and thinking I was doing a good thing versus maybe a primer. As soon as I finished I realized maybe that was a mistake as it is a very thin coat, feathering at some points. I did really "burnish" it into the wall with a 6" drywall knife.

Trying to figure out if I should just remove and replace the drywall or go with it as is. Thanks for any advice. This is my house by the way, I just pretend to be a tile contractor once every decade
