Damian Priest was called up to the main roster during this year’s Royal Rumble match, where he had an excellent performance. After that, he partnered up with Bad Bunny for the past few months, which culminated in tag team match, where they faced off against The Miz and John Morrison at WrestleMania 37. He also missed out on action earlier this year.

At WWE SummerSlam, Damian Priest squared off against Sheamus for the WWE United States Championship and after a very hard-fought battle, he overcame the Celtic Warrior’s offence and beat him for the title.

While speaking to Vicente Beltrán of ViBe & Wrestling, Damian Priest was asked about WWE legends who are currently part of the WWE locker room. Priest stated that most of them are private and then added that Goldberg congratulated him on his title win, which had a lot of value for him.

“Actually, most of them are private but not in a negative way. For example, Goldberg, the last time I saw him he came to greet me when I won the championship, and before his match, he gave me a hug and congratulated me, he told me that he was happy for me and all that and we did not know each other. Those things have a lot of value because a legend like Goldberg doesn’t have to say a word to me. What does it mean for him? Nothing and for me, it is a world.”


Damian Priest is set to defend his WWE United States Championship against Sheamus at the WWE Extreme Rules pay-per-view on September 26. We will have to see if Priest will be able to retain the title or not.
