Damian Priest’s extended delay in cashing in his Money In The Bank contract was a subject of mockery among wrestling fans. However, he ultimately silenced his critics after WrestleMania by cashing in the contract and winning the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.

Last year, Damian Priest reached a major milestone by winning the Money in the Bank briefcase, positioning himself for a potential championship reign. This opportunity came to fruition at WrestleMania 40 on Sunday when Priest capitalized on Drew McIntyre’s victory over Seth Rollins for the World Heavyweight Title. With a decisive cash-in, Priest secured the championship, marking significant moment in his career

During an appearance on WWE’s The Bump, Damian Priest discussed his recent Money In The Bank cash-in at WrestleMania. Priest explained that he had been waiting for the perfect opportunity and moment to cash in his contract. He stated that cashing in at WrestleMania provided the ideal scenario.

Priest expressed that his intention all along was to find the most opportune time to make his move, and WrestleMania offered the best possible stage for his cash-in. By seizing the opportunity at such a prestigious event, Priest felt that his decision was both strategic and meaningful, making his victory even more special.


“I’ve been saying I wanted the perfect opportunity, timing, the moment, all of it, it had to be perfect. WrestleMania, it can’t get any more perfect than that. So this was the time.”

Damian Priest also signed new contract with WWE. We will have to wait and see how Damian Priest will be booked as the WWE World Heavyweight Champion in the coming weeks.
