WWE called up Damian Priest from NXT during the Royal Rumble event. The company has some big plans for him as well, and things are bound to change for him.
Rich Ucchino recently spoke to Damian Priest about his main roster call-up. Priest has wrestled around for long enough that he understands the business. The former Punishment Martinez said that knows that some things are bound to change for him, but the jury is still out on what.
“You know how it is in this business man, like you hear things and you’re told things, but things didn’t change. And being that it was that far out, you know, it’s one of those like, ‘Hey, it’s looking like’… but nobody ever wanted to just tell me straight out, because everybody said the same thing. It was like, ‘but you know how things can change, so take it as a maybe.'”
“Then there was obviously the, ‘you might be in the Rumble.’ So then there’s that, but also the same thing, ‘like that would be cool, but as of right now, I’m an NXT superstar. Let me just focus on who I want to work with next and what I want to do here.”
Damian Priest is set to team with Bad Bunny at WrestleMania. That could be a huge spot for his early main roster career. The sky seems to be the limit for a big man like him. He’ll continue rolling with the punches to see what comes next.
