While speaking to Metal Hammer for a new interview, Damian Priest first talked about the connection between wrestling and heavy metal music.

"Ah, absolutely. I feel like they go hand-in-hand. I mean, you see a wrestling show, you see a sea of black t-shirts, you go to a metal show, you see a sea of black t-shirts, you know? It's one of those things that's the same kind of character or personality. It's something that, to your point, wrestling and metal aren't normal. It's not the norm. Our fanbases are so passionate. I'm a fan of sports and movies and all types of stuff, but when it comes to both those industries, the passion for a fan to be so immersed in it, I think is a special feeling, and you can't compare it to anything else"

Priest was then asked to name a band that he'd want to play him to the ring at 'The Showcase of the Immortals'.

"The mighty Metallica! You know what I mean? Can you imagine Metallica playing me to the ring? It'd be wild! Yeah. Hey, maybe I've gotta talk to the boss man and be like, 'Hey? What's up with Metallica?' That'd be a whole different dream scenario. I don't even know if I'm ready for that."
