WWE Superstar Damian Priest has given his take on the new direction his former employer Ring of Honor is going in under the ownership of Tony Khan.
Before joining WWE as part of the NXT brand in late 2018, The Punishment of The Judgment Day spent three years as part of Ring of Honor where he was known primarily as Punishment Martinez. During his time in ROH, Priest held the ROH World Television Championship for three months shortly before his exit from the company.
Since joining WWE, Damian Priest has captured both the NXT North American Championship and the WWE US Championship and has now embraced his dark side along with Rhea Ripley and Finn Balor in The Judgment Day after the group kicked the previous leader Edge out.
While he has undergone some changes in WWE, his old company Ring of Honor is almost unrecognisable from when he competed there after almost closing down to being bought by AEW owner Tony Khan.
Speaking to Nick Hausman of Wrestling Inc, Damian Priest gave his thoughts on Ring of Honor under its new ownership:
“Anytime that there’s another avenue for the boys and girls to go to, it’s a positive. I obviously still have friends there, so there’s nothing negative about a good place for people to continue living their dreams. For me, that’s A+.”
Ring of Honor recently held its second event under Tony Khan’s ownership with Claudio Castagnoli claiming the ROH Championship from Jonathan Gresham at Death Before Dishonor.
