Priest has done well at RAW since he was called up to the main lineup after his appearance at the Royal Rumble in 2021. He even went on to win against big names like The Miz and Elias.
In his latest interview with The Irish Sun, Priest revealed his Mount Rushmore from a fight and discussed similarities with WWE legend The Rock. The priest stated that both he and The Rock are out of nothing.
“And The Rock – just the way it is, not just wrestling. I come from a similar background. I came from nothing. ”
When asked, Priest chose The Rock, Undertaker, Triple H and Shawn Michaels for his Mount Rushmore.
Rock paid the membership fee before he became big on the WWE
Damian Priest couldn’t be right as he talked about the Rock coming from nothing. Although he was the son of Rocky Johnson, a famous wrestler, The Rock had to work on his job. For years, the Great fought and worked incredibly hard to become a professional wrestler, before finally making it to the WWE in the mid-90s.
Initially called Rocky Maivia, fans beat him down fiercely because he was a generic child with no personality. The hatred reached a point where he was bombarded by chanting “Die dead dead!” Later, the young rifle changed character, resulting in the birth of The Rock, arguably the most entertaining trick in wrestling history.
Rock has had a fairly successful career in the WWE and is an eight-time WWE champion. He has inspired a long list of wrestlers to try their hand at work and earn a living as WWE Superstars.
Priest is one of those wrestlers, and his fans hope the WWE will handle him well in the main list. At the moment, it looks like Priest will be involved in a big program that leads to WrestleMania 37 along with champion Bad Bunny who is uninterrupted.
