Damian Priest defeated Jey Uso in his first title defense at Backlash. He successfully defended his World Heavyweight Championship with the help of his Judgment Day team members, Finn Balor and JD McDonagh. The Archer of Infamy broke his silence on social media after an emphatic victory.

The 41-year-old star took to X and boasted his victory while mocking the WWE Universe. He stated that many fans would be mad that their favorite superstar lost the match. Although Damien Priest won the match and retained the title, it was the aftermath that became the talking point of the bout.

Priest had already shown his disapproval over his fellow Judgment Day members helping him in the buildup to the match. When JD McDonagh tried to interfere in the match, The Archer of Infamy was distracted, and it almost cost him the title. His frustration grew even more after The Irish Ace and Balor attacked an already-beaten Jey Uso.

How mad are you all today?

Enraged by this, he aggressively pushed his own members and prevented a cheap attack on his opponent. Although there was an intense moment between Balor and Priest, they finally put their differences aside and celebrated together. As such, it will be interesting to see how the dynamics of The Judgment Day unfold in the coming weeks.

Matt Morgan predicts that Damian Priest might lose his World Heavyweight title soon

Although The Archer of Infamy strolled past Jey at Backlash, there are a lot of viable opponents lying in wait for their chance to pounce on the opportunity. Recently, WWE veteran Matt Morgan predicted that Priest might lose his title to one of the top contenders, Drew McIntyre, soon.

While speaking on the Gigantic Pop podcast, The Blueprint stated that McIntyre might defeat the 41-year-old star to win the title in his home country. Morgan was referring to The Clash at the Castle event that will take place in Scotland in June. He further added that it would be the correct call to give the former WWE Champion the world title in front of his home crowd.

Yes. I have no doubt, and it's going to be cool to watch. You know, he's a heel like I think it's going to work. It's going to look good. It's going to feel good, yeah.

If McIntyre does end up receiving a title opportunity at Clash at the Castle, it wouldn’t be his first time competing for it at the event. Two years ago, The Scottish Warrior fell short of winning the Universal Championship as Solo Sikoa‘s debut shattered his dream. However, for now, the 38-year-old will shift his focus to the King of the Ring tournament.
