Damian Priest has solidified his commitment to WWE, as he recently signed a new contract with the company, ensuring his presence in the squared circle for the foreseeable future.

Priest’s journey to WWE began after he made waves in Ring of Honor before making the transition to NXT and eventually earning a spot on the main roster. His career reached new heights when he teamed up with Bad Bunny for a memorable tag team match at WrestleMania 37 in 2021, followed by a partnership with Edge at Judgment Day. Notably, Priest assumed leadership of a faction featuring notable talents such as Women’s World Champion Rhea Ripley, Finn Balor, JD McDonaugh, and Dominik Mysterio.

Last year, Priest achieved a significant milestone by winning the Money in the Bank briefcase, setting the stage for a potential championship reign. This opportunity culminated at WrestleMania 40 Sunday when Priest cashed in his briefcase after Drew McIntyre emerged victorious over Seth Rollins for the World Heavyweight Title. In a swift victory, Priest emerged as the new champion.

Reflecting on his recent success, Priest expressed his excitement in an interview with WWE Digital following Monday’s Raw, where he confirmed the news of his contract extension.


While the specific terms of the deal were not disclosed, Priest emphasized that this year has already been a standout for him, marked by a new contract, championship title, and even a new theme song featuring his own vocals.

With his future secured within WWE, Priest is poised to continue making waves in the wrestling world, with Judgment Day and beyond promising to be ablaze with excitement.
