Damian Priest reveals he wanted WrestleMania match with Hall of Famer

Last updated

WWE United States Champion Damian Priest revealed to the UK’s Metro that he wanted a massive match at this year’s WrestleMania event.

The former NXT North American Champion discussed several topics during the interview, including how he has been asking Triple H for a contest at WrestleMania.

‘I make jokes from time to time,’ Damian Priest began, speaking to Metro. ‘Like, hey, Mania ’“ Hunter didn’t have a match, and that was the first time all these legends, none of them [were on the show].

‘I was like, ’˜I mean, did you bring your gear? Because you can have a match, I’m right here!’ He started laughing and said, ’˜You’re on a list of people that have asked me that.’

“I was like, I bet, I can imagine ’“ he gets it all the time by guys being like, ’˜Hey you wanna work? You wanna wrestle?'” Priest continued.

‘I mean, I wish [I get to face them all],’ Priest admitted. ‘I still hold out hope, you know? Especially in this business, never say never!

“I think the closest one that I know that there’s a chance ’“ and we’ve already kind of had an interaction at the Rumble ’“ is Edge” Damian Priest added.

‘Obviously Kane, we had a little bit of interaction. But I’m not satisfied, I need a lot more of that! Those feelings, just standing across from those guys ’“ super cool, super, super cool’ the Archer of Infamy concluded.

It’s unlikely that we will see a match between Damian Priest and Triple H, but the potential for a contest between Priest and Edge is certainly one that is intriguing.
