WWE Plans to Use Damian Priest to Draw Latin Audience

Damian Priest made his big debut at the Royal Rumble last week and continued to make his presence felt on RAW the next night.

Priest teamed up with international sensation Bad Bunny, which indicated a sign of big things to come for the former NXT North American Champion.

Priest was born in New York, but he is Puerto Rican. According to Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the feeling backstage is that Priest can be the next big thing to come out of WWE for the Latin audiences, which is why they are letting him be Bunny’s buddy.

There are rumors of Bunny appearing at Wrestlemania alongside Priest, for a tag match against The Miz and John Morrison.

“The idea is Priest will get the rub in the Latino community in particular of being Bunny’s tag team partner.”

Priest has the charisma and wrestling skills to be a great babyface on the main roster, and could finally be the answer for WWE’s next big thing for the South American audiences.
