For the Puerto Rican native, the moment was up there with his WrestleMania match.

"Unbelievable. These are the parts of the dream that you don't imagine you're going to achieve and, for me, wrestling in Puerto Rico at El Cholito (José Miguel Agrelot Coliseum) is up there like fighting at Wrestlemania, for me personally. I have never, not even in my career, fought in Puerto Rico, and this being my first time with the company and as the United States Champion is incredible," Priest told Lucha Libre Online (translation via Luis Pulido).

Priest was victorious in the main event, picking up the victory over Sami Zayn. You can find full results from the show by clicking here.
