Original plans for Damian Priest’s “open challenge” on WWE Raw | Planet Wrestling

One of Bad Bunny’s faithful companions in his WWE debut was thanks to the Puerto Rican Damian Priest. From that moment it was clear that after his good role with his countryman there would be big plans after his rise from NXT.

Known as the archer of infamy, he is delighting creatives, Vince himself and the public. When the fighter manages to empathize with the public and vice versa, it is clear that this fighter is destined for big plans. His great achievement in the last month has been to get his first championship on the main roster.

With two consecutive defeats by Sheamus they were the perfect incentive to think about victory and the new image of the red brand. This week he made it clear that like his great idols John Cena, Jeff Hardy … he would put his championship on the line week after week.

Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Radio has revealed the original plans for Damian Priest’s US Open challenge. Meltzer reported that the initial idea was for Damian Priest to work with Drew McIntyre. WWE wanted a feud between Bobby Lashley and Randy Orton, so they decided to cancel the former’s match with Sheamus and inserted the Celtic Warrior into the image of the United States title, turning the open challenge into a triple threat match.

“It seems like the decision was that they would go with Randy Orton and Bobby Lashley, so they wanted Randy Orton there with Bobby Lashley, which took Sheamus out of that match. And I heard that Drew and Priest at one point were going to be a singles match, but when they pulled Sheamus (out of Lashley’s match), Sheamus was moved and they made it a three-game. There were a million changes during the day, and at the end of the day, all the announced matches did not happen. ” (H / T: Wrestletalk )
