Damian Priest made his main roster debut at the Royal Rumble, and he immediately got friendly with Bad Bunny. Priest took out The Miz and John Morrison before Bad Bunny nailed a dive that garnered mainstream attention. A WrestleMania moment is in the plans.
We previously reported that Bad Bunny has trained at the WWE Performance Center. The thinking is that he will team with Damian Priest against The Miz and John Morrison at WrestleMania.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter noted that there is hope that Damian Priest will get a big moment out of this. The company also wants to give him a huge push with the Latino community by associating with Bad Bunny.
The idea is Priest will get the rub in the Latino community in particular of being Bunny’s tag team partner.
WWE’s original plan was to debut Damian Priest on SmackDown as Kevin Owens’ best friend. That plan was nixed because Kevin Owens said it didn’t make sense, and then Roman Reigns backed him up. Things have turned out for the best because Damian Priest is in a pretty good spot on RAW.
