Damian Priest Talks WWE Royal Rumble and RAW Debut

Last updated

WWE Superstar Damian Priest recently appeared on ’˜The Run In’ on BT Sport. The new show on BT Sport is part of the build up to the Elimination Chamber PPV on Sunday. Priest discussed his debut and move to the WWE ‘main roster,’ which began with his appearance in the Men’s Royal Rumble match back in January.

“The reaction from my friends and stuff, it’s kind of like ‘dude, that was awesome, you had a great showing that was impressive'” Damian Priest began. “Then for people who didn’t really know me? It’s kind of like ‘oh, we kind of want to see him again.'”

“I’m glad that the prep work that I’ve done in my time in NXT, surrounding myself with the right people to kind of guide me? It all paid off, because I thought it worked out very well” Priest continued. “The two that we did know that were going to be in there was Edge and Randy Orton. Unfortunately I didn’t get to get in there with Randy, but those were two that I was really looking forward to.”

Damian Priest finished by talking about getting the chance to work with Edge in the Rumble match. Edge has mentioned in the past how Priest has come to him for guidance. “But I got Edge” Priest exclaimed. “The fan in me thought it was so super cool. And then obviously there’s the man to man you know? We have a mentor/student type of relationship where I look up to him. Then getting to square up [in the Rumble]? That was cool. That was really cool.”
