Former WWE star Brian James, a.k.a. “Road Dogg,” has been a big name in WWE. He has been a part of one of the greatest factions in WWE, known as DX. Most recently, he made an appearance on the episode “Raw is XXX.” Apart from being a former WWE star, he holds a significant position in the company. He is responsible for looking after the creative product of WWE live shows that are not televised.
Road Dogg, during his podcast “Oh… You Didn’t Know,” spoke about WWE superstar Damian Priest. He said that he is really impressed by the growth and evolution of the former NXT star. “Damian Priest, I think I’ve said it said it before, actually maybe on here, but he has come so far,” he said. Moreover, Road Dogg also said that there are big things yet to come for him. The former DX star sees potential in him and has praised him for his incredible performance on the main roster. “Think about the people that Damian Priest is surrounded by […], I predict he’ll be a Universal Champion one day. I do believe that, and I believe he could carry it,” he added.
Damian Priest, who is a part of The Judgment Day, has quite impressed the fans with his performance. Priest has been the faction’s dominant force since Edge recruited him on The Judgement Day. Road Dogg believes he is surrounded by some of the most incredible superstars, such as Finn Balor, Rhea Ripley, and Dominik Mysterio, and is still able to shine among them. Therefore, he believes it is not much time before he will be in the main title picture.
Damian Priest had an incredible run on the NXT roster, winning the NXT North American Championship in 2020. With Triple H at the helm, fans can expect even more incredible things from The Archer of Infamy in the future.
