Priest, the newest member of the Raw roster, recently joined Sportskeeda for an exclusive interview where he discussed what fans can expect from him on Monday Night Raw.

The former NXT North American Champion said fans will see a ten times better version of him compared to NXT. He said, “Just me. Every aspect of everything that anybody has seen that they might have liked, you are gonna see that times ten. Because, now I’m loose. (laughs)”

“I think for a while I was still trying to figure out because I didn’t want to step on anybody’s toes or do things the wrong way. But now is like, I get it like I’m good. I can do me now, you know and I’m confident enough to do that. So now I get to actually step towards the goal that I keep or that I was bragging about which was I wanted to achieve so much that my name would live forever,” Priest continued.

“I think now I can actually really cement that in my actions. Like now I can just focus on just every time I’m out there, doing something that people talk about, doing something that people remember. Doing something cool and exciting and awesome, like that’s what I want. That’s who I am. And I look forward to bring everybody along with that journey and just having a blast doing it, ,” he added.

A bright future for Priest on the main roster?

Damian Priest looks like he’s set to achieve some big milestones in the WWE. Plus, the company is also pushing him like a star, and we can see it from his presentation in the first two appearances.

WWE scrapped his main roster debut on SmackDown ahead of the Royal Rumble match. But the way we see things unfolding on Raw, it only looks like a good idea that they waited for Priest’s debut.
