The Undertakers official retirement from in-ring competition in November 2020 came at the wrong time for a current WWE RAW Superstar.Damian Priest joined the main roster in January 2021 just two months after WWE held a farewell ceremony for The Deadman at Survivor Series 2020. The two men have interacted behind the scenes in WWE but their dark characters never crossed paths in an on screen storyline.Speaking to Sportskeeda Wrestlings Liam Power ahead of Clash at the Castle Priest was asked to name a dream opponent he wishes he could face.
The easy answer is Undertaker Priest said. He has the reason why I wanted to become a WWE Superstar. He has the reason why I fell in love with this business. It has nothing to do with the wrestling so to speak. It was more The Undertaker the character the emotion he got out of me thats what I strive to do for others. I want to get that type of emotion out of people. Hands down easy answer no question about it The Undertaker.Watch the video above to hear Priest explain how Rhea Ripley reacted after her recent leg choke spot with Dominik Mysterio on RAW.
The man behind the legendary Undertaker persona Mark Calaway occasionally visits WWEs Performance Center in Orlando Florida to speak to the companys up and coming stars.In 2021 Damian Priest said it was so cool to lock up with the 57 year old in a training session during his time in NXT. The Judgment Day member added that the iconic superstar threw a full speed punch in his direction before pulling away at the last second Realistically a match between Priest and The Phenom is unlikely to happen. The latter cryptically stated never say never during his Hall of Fame induction earlier this year. However there has been no indication that an in-ring return is on the horizon.
