Damian Priest is currently enjoying his run as the WWE United States Champion, but prior to that, he was in one of the most memorable matches of year, when he tagged up with recording artist Bad Bunny at WrestleMania 37. According to Priest, though, things would have been quite different if he got his way.
Speaking recently to Metro, Priest revealed that he initially tried to convince Triple H to work with him at WrestleMania.
“I make jokes from time to time,” said Priest. “Like, hey, Mania – Hunter didn’t have a match, and that was the first time all these legends, none of them [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.'”
Obviously, Priest wasn’t able to convince the legendary Superstar to lace up his boots once again, but that hasn’t stopped Priest from daydreaming about what it might be like to face off against some of the all-time greats in the business.
“I mean, I wish, “Priest said. “I still hold out home, 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. Obviously Kane, we had a little bit of an 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.”
Priest will defend his WWE United States Championship against Sheamus when the two foes face off in a one-on-one match at WWE Extreme Rules later this month.
