WWE United States Champion Damian Priest and rapper Bad Bunny shocked the wrestling world with their performances in tag team action at WrestleMania 37. If Priest would’ve had his way, fans would have seen the former NXT star take on Triple H instead.
Speaking with Metro.co.uk Priest revealed that he wanted more legends on the show, noting the only legend on the show was Shane McMahon, who lost a steel cage match to Braun Strowman.
Recalling jokingly asking The Game for a match, Priest said:
“‘I make jokes from time to time. Like, hey, Mania – Hunter didn’t have a match, and that was the first time all these legends, none of them (on the show). I was like, ‘I mean, did you bring your gear? Because you can have a match, I’m right here!’ He started laughing and said, ‘You’re on a list of people that have asked me that. ‘I was like, I bet, I can imagine – he gets it all the time by guys being like, ‘Hey you wanna work? You wanna wrestle?’”
Priest also has an interest in working with Jeff Hardy, who’s currently in the WWE 24/7 title picture:
“As far as other people, man, Jeff Hardy can call me any day he wants to get in the ring. I’ll be game for that, it’s Jeff Hardy. There’s a lot of legends that are still here and can still go, and I’m game for it. that’s just talking Raw, we’re not even talking about the SmackDown roster. As far as Raw goes, there’s a slew of guys, but of course, I want the top guys.”
Damian Priest faces Sheamus in a rematch from SummerSlam for the WWE United States Championship on Sunday, September 26 at Extreme Rules.
