In his interview with Fightful, Damian Priest explained the range of emotions he felt when he was told about being moved to the main roster. The current United States Champion asked Triple H how he felt about him being moved to WWE RAW.
"Triple H came up to me backstage at an NXT show. He was like, ‘Hey, man. Want to tell you how proud I am. Blah-blah-blah. You’re moving on. Looks like you’re gonna be on Monday night RAW. I’m not sure, but it’s looking like RAW. So, congrats.’ I just kinda stood there staring at him ‘cause I didn’t know what to say. I was like, am I supposed to be happy? ‘Cause I’m leaving NXT. I’m one of his guys… I’m like, ‘How do you feel about it?’ I turned it on him and he’s like, ‘What? Yeah, I’m happy for you.’ ‘Okay, I’m happy, too. I think. I don’t know.’ I was just so awkward," said Damian Priest.
Priest stated that it was his dream to be in WWE and wrestle on RAW or SmackDown and that he needed a moment to digest the news.
