But the Puerto Rican delivered as expected; after constant back and forth against his opponent, Priest finally got his first win on the summer’s biggest party.

After his outstanding match against ‘The Celtic Warrior’, American actress Tiffany Haddish interviewed Priest backstage; congratulating him on his inaugural championship reign in the company.

However, while interviewing, the actress accidentally called Priest the ‘National Champion’ instead of ‘The United States Champion’ and the fans on the internet are cringing.

However, this botch did not bother Damian as he was enjoying the moment and had a gigantic smile on his face. Priest said that he felt good stripping Sheamus off his US championship because he is a bully and Priest does not like Sheamus.
