WWE star Damian Priest recently spoke with Fightful where the former United States champion discussed his run on the main roster thus far, how much he’s enjoyed working with Finn Balor, and how he feels that WWE has put their full trust in him. Highlights from the interview can be found below.
Says it feels good when a company trusts him:
“Yeah. It feels good when you see the company trusts you. You don’t feel like you wasted your time or your abilities or anything. The dream was what it should have been and I am grateful for that. It’s crazy that it worked out better than I could have imagined.”
Says he is very happy with how his main roster run has gone:
“Absolutely. Growing up being a fan, part of that was I loved stables. I loved groups. You know I’m a big NWO guy. Love DX. Love the Horsemen. Love Evolution. There’s so many factions I was such a fan of. Now I get to be in one. So when this started to come about, originally it started with Edge and I. When we got to talking and were like, ‘It’d be cool if we got to do something like this.’ Then start throwing names around like, who would be a good fit? Who should we ask? Who should we pitch? All this stuff. It was exciting. Even before we even started, just the conversations, I was so giddy. I was like, ‘This is gonna be so cool.’ Now we’re doing it. We’re the Judgement Day. It’s so cool, man. I’m extremely happy. Rhea and I, obviously everyone knows that we’re homies. Finn Balor’s one of my all time favorites. Us working together is definitely one of the coolest things I’ve ever done.”
How well he’s been working with Finn Balor:
“It’s been easy, actually. We go out there and everything’s so… Like I said, it’s literally easy. We know what the other’s thinking, know what the other person’s doing. We just flow. We’re just getting started. Imagine when we have some time together, all of us together. What we’re going to accomplish and the chaos we’re gonna cause. ’cause that’s the goal. Let’s really cause some ruckus here. Backstage and behind the cameras, we’re gonna have a blast with this. So teaming with Finn, he’s on the same page. Every time we’re around each other and we start talking business, we’re laughing and joking. We’re like, ‘This is gonna be good.’ Because that’s how you know it’s gonna work.”
