Damien Priest Discusses Importance Of Wrestling Rey Mysterio On Last Week’s RAW


WWE RAW Superstar Damien Priest got to wrestle Rey Mysterio on this past week’s show, emanating from Madison Square Garden. Priest and Finn Balor lost to Rey & Dominik on the show, but the match was noteworthy for other reasons.

Speaking with Wrestling Inc, Priest spoke about Mysterio’s legacy and importance in the Hispanic community.

You can check out some highlights from the interview below:

On Rey’s impact on the culture: “For a Latino from New York, you know, seeing Rey all these years representing our culture, it’s important. You know, one of the main things that I get told all the time by our Latino fan base is, ‘Thanks for representing.’ I don’t know if that is happening without a Rey. I mean, like, what he’s done for the Latin community, the Hispanic people, it’s just incredible.”

“So, for me, every honor that I have in doing anything for our community is our heritage. Being that it’s 20 years in WWE, Madison Square Garden, where I grew up, you know, seeing so many events. And then again with Rey, and he’s obviously coming towards the later years of his career and future Hall of Famer and now SummerSlam, talk about the timing, getting to work with him. So being that it was MSG, it’s mind-blowing. Yeah, we came up short in the match, but I had a really good time during his celebration.”
