Damian Priest Discusses The Recent WWE Releases, Having Some ‘Survivor’s Guilt’


During a recent interview with Metro, WWE Superstar Damian Priest commented on the recent WWE releases, having some survivor’s guilt over them, and more. You can check out some highlights from the interview below:

On the recent WWE releases: ‘It’s unfortunate, obviously. It is not just our business – it’s in any business, that’s just the way it goes. I’ve lost more jobs and more opportunities that I count. That’s the unfortunate part of life. Especially in a business where you’re living your dream – so it hurts, because we care about these people. We know they’re hurting, so we hurt. It’s unfortunate. It’s like that survivors guilt – you feel guilty, but at the same time… it’s an odd feeling. But then you come to the realisation – wait a minute, these are all incredible people! They’re gonna be fine! There’s that positive, and that’s always my sentiment. Well, now the world is yours. Go out and grab it!”


On his No DQ Match with T-BAR on RAW: ‘I’ve known him for years and I know how hard he’s worked. He got to show off, I got to show off – we’ve both got battle scars to show off. My stomach is brutal! Not [fun] at all. The first shot he gave me, it was one of the worst pains I’ve ever felt, and when I saw the stick break I was so happy – “Thank God that’s over with! Getting some time on television to really do what we gotta do – he’s an awesome competitor, so I love that we got to do that together,’ he smiled. ‘[He’s] probably one of the most talented big men I’ve ever been in the ring with.’”
