WWE World Heavyweight Champion Damian Priest has addressed the injury scare from his match against Drew McIntyre at Clash at the Castle on June 15. During a high-risk middle rope springboard move to the ringside area, Priest’s ankle got caught in the ropes, nearly resulting in disaster.

Despite this mishap, Priest managed to finish the match, though he was visibly limping afterward. In the post-show press conference, Priest revealed that he had not yet been examined by doctor but believed he was alright. He remarked:

“It feels like trash right now. I didn’t even go to medical yet so I could do this and talk to you guys and answer your questions, so you’re all welcome. Docs will check it out, but I ain’t going anywhere. I was able to beat Drew McIntyre on one foot so I’m pretty sure I’m all good to go.”


Dave Meltzer provided further insight on the latest installment of Wrestling Observer Radio, noting that the injury isn’t as severe as initially feared. He stated:

“I actually heard from them and the preliminary news wasn’t bad, they’re actually saying it’s like a miracle. It wasn’t as bad as they feared, but nothing is conclusive.”
