Damian Priest who is also a formal WWE NXT North American champion recently spoke to Masked Man Show where he said that he always felt that he really belonged to WWE. He is working on the main roster for over a year and he is doing really good. He said;
“After a match on NXT, it was my first actual match, like I had a few matches, but my first match against Pete Dunne, Butch now, I remember getting a text from X-Pac. He goes, ‘you belong’. You know, I thought that was so cool because he knows the way I am and Hunter was just like that. He came up to me and he was like, ‘that’s the guy’.
“You know, when I wrestled Finn Balor in NXT, he came back and he goes, ‘that is the guy I want to see every week now. That guy with that swag that you showcased out there’. Because before that, I’ve said it before, that he gave me a piece of advice, which he got from The Undertaker, which is also super cool, and he was like, ‘you know, Taker told me this once and I’m going to give it to you.
“When you figure out how to be yourself, you’re going to be more successful’. And he goes, ‘I know, it’s weird. It’s, how do you not know how to be yourself? You’re you. But it’s different on camera’. I was pretending to be a version of what people thought I was instead of just being and Shawn Michaels would say the same thing. He’d be like, ‘I like this guy. This guy’s cool. Just be that guy on TV’.”
