Damian Priest is getting over with WWE management.
After a run in NXT, Damian Priest has always been planned for big things in WWE. Originally set for a top Smackdown feud, things changed and he ended up on WWE Raw where he's been hanging out with Bad Bunny. As Fightful Select reported recently, he's made waves with management.
