As a wrestling news reporter, I have the latest insights into the WWE world and today’s news revolves around none other than Damian Priest. For fans wondering why the scheduled match between Damian Priest and Jey Uso on the October 2 episode of WWE Raw was not aired, I have all the dirty details.
The bout, eagerly anticipated by fans, had to be scrapped at the last moment due to Priest not being cleared to wrestle on Monday night. With the audience left in disappointment, a cloud of mystery began to form around the sudden change in plans.
According to Fightful Select, it is reported that Priest wasn’t medically cleared to showcase his wrestling talents that Monday night. However, the issue was promptly addressed and by Friday’s SmackDown, the much-loved wrestling star was back in action. The reasons that led to Priest’s disqualification from the night’s match remain undisclosed.
To pacify his fans, Damian Priest took part in a dark match on the Friday following the scrapped Raw event. The showdown involved wrestling sensations like John Cena, Cody Rhodes, Jey Uso, LA Knight, Finn Balor, Solo Sikoa, and Jimmy Uso. Intriguingly, the match was produced by Jason Jordan.
More to the story, at WWE Fastlane on October 7, Priest alongside Finn Balor lost the WWE Undisputed Tag Team Titles to Cody Rhodes and Jey Uso. In a twist of events, JD McDonagh attempted to intervene in the match but ended up smashing the Money in the Bank briefcase into Priest’s leg. McDonagh has since reached out on social media to the Judgment Day member.
