The Game supported this former United States Champion to keep his WrestleMania spot when the company almost scraped his name off that spot. This former United States Champion is none other than The Archer of Infamy, aka Damian Priest.

Triple H played a generous card for Damian Priest!

WWE Superstar Damian Priest had his WrestleMania moment last year when he teamed with The Millionaire Rapper Bad Bunny. At WrestleMania 37, Damian Priest and Bad Bunny collided against The Miz and John Morrison.

On the latest episode of The Masked Man Show, Damian Priest revealed that WWE almost took him away from the WrestleMania 37 spot with Bad Bunny. But the 14-time World Champion had Priest’s back.


“I felt good that they trusted me in that role, and I’m sure there was a talk because how can you trust someone that you don’t know? There are people like Hunter [Triple H] who knew I was fine, and he is the reason why it ended up working out because I almost got switched out. They almost took me out of that spot,” Priest said.

Damian added, “If I was in their shoes, 100%, that would be the way to go, and Hunter [Triple H] went to bat for me. And he was like, ‘Hey, I’m sorry that they even told you it’s not going to be you now because I’m going to go have a conversation. And he explained why I should be trusted.”

When ‘The Game’ Triple H learned that WWE might try to push Damian Priest out of the WrestleMania spot, he apologized to Priest. In addition, Paul Levesque personally announced a meeting to tell the company that they should trust Damian Priest.

Would Damian Priest exist without The Game?

The Archer of Infamy and Bunny took home the victory at the Grandest Stage of them All. However, at first, WWE did not believe in Damian Priest until The Game had the last word for him with the company. So The Archer of Infamy was glad that Triple H took his side.

Triple H has positively stuck with Damian Priest during his NXT days. The former United States Champion spoke about Triple H’s impact on his wrestling career.

“There’s no Damian Priest with Triple H. That’s 100%. There are no ifs and buts about it. I am not sitting here with you if there is no Triple H,” Priest continued.
