Damian Priest recently inked fresh contract with WWE, solidifying his commitment to the company for the foreseeable future.

The confirmation of his extended tenure came hot on the heels of his triumph in capturing the World Heavyweight Title, as he shared during an interview with Cathy Kelley following WWE Raw.

Behind the scenes, the negotiations for Priest’s new deal had been underway for some time, with insider reports from Fightful Select indicating that the agreement was finalized just in the nick of time. With his previous contract set to expire in February, discussions between Priest and WWE management intensified, culminating in the sealing of the multi-year deal.

Despite the proximity of his contract’s expiration, WWE sources assert that retaining Priest was always a priority for the organization. Both parties engaged in extensive discussions prior to reaching an agreement, underscoring WWE’s commitment to keeping the talented superstar within their roster.


An intriguing detail of Priest’s contract extension is his newfound autonomy over his entrance theme, a creative freedom that he exercised to great success. Reports suggest that his new theme song has garnered widespread acclaim within WWE circles, further enhancing Priest’s standing within the company.

WWE’s talent relations landscape has undergone restructuring in the wake of Priest’s re-signing. Variety reported that Priest has also secured representation with Paradigm Talent Agency, expanding his professional footprint beyond the confines of WWE.
