Damian Priest Details Learning From The Miz On WWE Raw
Priest feuded with The Miz earlier this year
Damian Priest has revealed working with The Miz on WWE Raw helped him to get more comfortable cutting promos live in the ring.
Priest debuted on the WWE main roster in January and immediately entered into a feud with Miz and John Morrison, defeating the duo alongside Bad Bunny in a tag-team match at WrestleMania 37 before beating The A-Lister again at WrestleMania Backlash.
The United States Champion admits that the most uncomfortable part of being a WWE superstar, for him, is talking on the microphone, but being in the ring with The Miz and watching how he does it has been a huge learning curve for Priest.
Speaking on WWE After The Bell, when asked about what he learned from The Miz, Priest said: "“I’ll tell you one thing, the mic. For me, the most uncomfortable thing is holding a microphone and speaking to the WWE Universe.
"With him, I see how just his flow goes and he breaks and makes sure you understand every single word he says. Being in the ring, like when I was on Miz TV and going back and forth with him, I was listening to him speak and I see the way he was delivering. And you see how I start speaking, and then by the end, I’m more so speaking like he does.
"I’m like, this is why he’s so good because of the way that he’s able to speak in gear change and deliver different types of emotions and levels while he’s speaking instead of just being boring and one way. I’ve picked that up and kept on trying to improve on it. I would watch him a lot while we were in the ring. I would just stare at his mouth and see how he’s talking and see his body language as well. That’s one of the many things I’ve picked up from him."
