Damian Priest and Bad Bunny teamed up at WrestleMania to take on The Miz and John Morrison. That tag team match drew a lot of attention because of Bad Bunny’s participation. It was also a make or break situation for Priest as an NXT newcomer.

Sporting News Australia recently spoke to Damian Priest about his WrestleMania moment. He was quite honest in his response as he disclosed the true pressure that was on him. He was told by “a lot of people” that if his partnership with Bad Bunny didn’t do well, then he was toast.

A lot of people were honest with me and they told me, ‘Listen, you can’t blow this because if you do, you’re done.’ All I said was you’re giving me the opportunity, I’m going to do everything to my abilities to knock this out of the park. I knew I had put in the work, so give me the opportunity and I will do my end. It goes both ways, and I think we both delivered so we brought our audience a product worthy of them being entertained and being happy to watch.

That WrestleMania moment ended up making a big splash. Bad Bunny and Damian Priest were featured in headlines around the world. It’s a good thing that the situation worked out as it did because Damian Priest had a lot more riding on that match than just one night.
