WWE is known to have changed the names of its superstars, their popular gadgets, and even notable maneuvers. The most recent example of this would be Damian Priest.
The former North American NXT Champion recently made his main roster debut. After Royal Rumble 2021, Priest made the RAW list and teamed up with rapper Bad Bunny.
On tonight’s RAW (02/22/21), “The Archer of Infamy” faced off against Angel Garza. Bad Bunny came down the ramp alongside Priest to show his support. Notably, Priest had helped him win the championship 24/7 ahead of TLC 2020.
In the match, Garza and Priest both attempted to beat each other. They also implicated Bunny in the match with trashy comments. Towards the end, Priest hit two back-to-back kicks.

Damian Priest then used his finisher to pin Garza and win the game. Interestingly, his finisher had gone from “The Reckoning” to “Hit the Lights”. After the match, Akira Tozawa, Humberto Carrillo and Drew Gulak showed up for the title 24/7.
In the end, Priest and Bunny attacked their opponents and cleared the ring.
Damian Priest has high hopes for his RAW roster
As we mentioned earlier, Damian Priest recently debuted on WWE RAW. Prior to joining WWE, Priest was a household name in independent promotions like Ring of Honor and NJPW.
However, WWE is notorious for snubbing talented NXT stars on the main roster. Figures like Aleister Black, Finn Balor and even Keith Lee (to some extent) bear witness to this claim.
Recently in an interview with Illustrated sportsPriest addressed these issues and said he would work hard to make sure that doesn’t happen.
“It’s one thing to get here; it’s another to stay. I am not complacent. I will never stop. I will always strive to do more. “
“I am never, never satisfied and I always want more. This is where my whole “Live Forever” mantra comes from. This is the way I live my life,” Proclaimed priest. “I want my name to stand the test of time, and there are many things I need to accomplish, for my name to live on forever. Now I have the chance to get started on Raw and can’t wait to show people something they haven’t seen before.
Hopefully we’ll see more of Damian Priest as the incredible singles performer that he is. Let us know your thoughts on his current storyline on RAW in the comments below.
