NXT's Wade Barrett Full Of Praise For WWE’s Damian Priest
Some good news for The Archer of Infamy
WWE NXT commentator Wade Barrett is a big fan of current WWE US Champion Damian Priest.
Since debuting on the main roster earlier this year, Priest has impressed, with his recent title defence against Sheamus on Monday’s edition of RAW in a 'No Disqualification, No Count-out Match' match earning widespread praise.
Taking to Twitter after the show, Barrett said the following:
“I knew the second I saw him in #WWENXT that @ArcherOfInfamy was the real deal, but he’s found a whole new level of late. IF they can survive, 2 months of scrapping with @Sheamus makes anyone better. And sore. #WWERaw”
A former ROH TV Champion, Priest has been well positioned across WWE TV since debuting for NXT in 2018. In NXT Priest reigned as North American Champion for 67 days, having won the title in a five-way ladder match at takeOver XXX, before joining the main roster during the Royal Rumble.
After working with Bad Bunny at WrestleMania 37, Priest climbed the ranks on Raw, winning the US Championship from Sheamus at SummerSlam 2021 in August.
