Damian Priest was called up to Monday Night RAW after the Royal Rumble pay-per-view. He had a decent run in NXT where he won the NXT North American Championship.

However, it seems his NXT run left much to be desired for many. While speaking to Sportskeeda, Damian Priest talked about his run in NXT. Priest revealed that he wasn’t happy with his run as Priest felt there was a lot left to accomplish for him.

Priest was disappointed that he didn’t win the NXT Championship. Priest then mentioned Finn Balor and hinted at returning to NXT one day to win the NXT title in the same way Balor did.

“There’s still a lot that I didn’t accomplish that I would have liked to and I would say this. I mean, hey Finn Balor did it, you know. He achieved success on RAW and SmackDown and then continued achieving success in NXT. It goes without saying that everybody’s expecting him to at some point one day to again be successful on RAW and SmackDown. So, you never know. But yeah, there is something. I wouldn’t say disappointed as far as like before I left. But I am disappointed just in the sense that I didn’t win the championship. Not because I moved on or anything. Just in general like I wanted to be the champion, I wanted to be the guy. So, I still believe that there is a time for that. But yeah, there’s still a lot that I feel that was unaccomplished in NXT.”

Priest had an impressive showing at the Royal Rumble match and it seems there are big plans in store for him on Monday Night RAW.
