As previously noted, Damian Priest reportedly suffered an injury prior to Wrestlemania 37. The injury was said to have put his tag match with Bad Bunny against The Miz and John Morrison in jeopardy until the last minute.
In an update, Dave Meltzer and Bryan Alvarez of F4WOnline.com brought up the injury in regards to why Priest hasn’t been on WWE television since the May 17th 2021 edition of RAW. It appears that Priest continued to work despite having a bad back but then the decision was made for him to take time off to recover.
Fightful Select provided additional details…
“We have heard that he’s healing up, and will be available as soon as next week if WWE has creative plans for him. He was said to have been unavailable the past couple of weeks for other, undisclosed reasons.”
Priest recently commented on his Wrestlemania match being nominated for an ESPY…
Very cool for @sanbenito and I to be nominated for an #ESPYS award. Didn't think our #WrestleMania moment could get sweeter but winning this might just do that 😏. Vote! 🏹#LiveForever https://t.co/vFcl72r74t
