Damian Priest set for main roster move after Smackdown debut got nixed

Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer is reporting that Damian Priest was supposed to make his main roster debut on Smackdown last week but that did not happen due to a last-minute creative change.

Priest was set to tag team with Kevin Owens and introduced as one of Owens’ best buddies to help him in the war against Roman Reigns and Jey Uso. But while Owens was said to have agreed to roll with it, he expressed his thoughts about him and Priest sharing absolutely no history together, so the storyline did not make much sense. After Roman Reigns pitched in and took Owens’ side, the whole angle was scrapped and Priest remained backstage and was not part of the broadcast.

The former NXT North American champion might now find himself part of the Raw roster instead of Smackdown although no final decision has been made yet.

Priest has been working for WWE since late 2018 and enjoyed an eventful time on the NXT roster so far.
