Current WWE United States Champion Damian Priest is lighting things up on Monday Night Raw right now, and recently just scored the biggest win of his WWE career, pinning Drew McIntyre to retain his United States title in a Triple Threat match also involving Sheamus.
Whilst Priest is showing no signs of slowing down in the ring any time soon, the 38-year-old recently spoke to Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful, where he discussed his desire to work in talent development upon his retirement from in-ring competition.
“Absolutely. I love this business so much. I love everything about it. Helping others has always been something that makes me feel special. Because through helping, it’s almost like you’re succeeding when somebody else succeeds. So, I’ve always felt that specialness. That’s a conversation that I’ve even had with Triple H a while back where, you know, hopefully, one day I could have the opportunity to be on this side of things alongside these incredible, incredible legends and help out,’”
Priest announced on Twitter today that he would be presenting an award at the Billboard Latin Music Awards on September 23.
Three days after the awards, Priest is set to defend his United States Championship against Sheamus at the WWE Extreme Rules pay-per-view on September 26, which will be his 39th birthday.
