Damian Priest Discusses The Importance Of His WWE Backlash Match With Bad Bunny



In a recent interview with People, Damian Priest discussed the significance of his match with Bad Bunny tonight at WWE Backlash 2023.

Priest will wrestle Bunny in a San Juan Street Fight at the Coliseo de Puerto Rico José Miguel Agrelot in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

You can check out some highlights from the interview below:

On the importance of his match tonight: “I truly believe it’s going to be the most special thing I do in my career. Individually, yeah, I could win the big title or I could have that ‘WrestleMania moment,’ but this? This is so much more than just about me or him. This is about our culture and our heritage and that cannot be duplicated, that feeling of being involved in something this important. It’s got to be the biggest thing I ever do.”

On wrestling in Puerto Rico: “I fell in love with wrestling in Puerto Rico. It’s like religion out there. I looked up to these superstars like they were superheroes and it’s wild to me that I get to bring that feeling to the island and maybe some kid sees me and thinks the same. That means the world to me.”

On Bad Bunny’s passion for wrestling: “I saw the work he put in. I saw how quickly he picked it up. I would explain things to him once and he’d be able to just do it. He showed up at WrestleMania. He loves the business. He’s a big fan. And he’s treated it with respect. So, I know for him to come back now, he’s not here promoting anything and he wants to be involved in the product, so I would imagine he’s just as happy now as he was for his first match at WrestleMania. He was like a little kid, excited, and nervous, I remember that. It was awesome.”
