Damian Priest took to social media this week to respond to recent praise from WWE legend Glenn “Kane” Jacobs.
As noted, “The Big Red Machine” spoke with WWE.com for an exclusive backstage video interview to get his immediate take on the 30-man Royal Rumble match, which saw him eliminated by the NXT Superstar.
“He’s got a ton of potential,” Kane said of Priest in the interview from this past Sunday’s Royal Rumble 2021 show. “I mean it stinks because I would have liked to be in the match longer. But he’s [Priest] going to be an impact player in WWE. I think you’re going to see a lot more moments like that from him in the future.”
On Wednesday, Priest took to his official Twitter feed to share his response to Kane’s high praise for the entire WWE Universe to read.
“If I’m dreaming, do not disturb,” wrote Priest. “Kane already had my respect. Now he has my gratitude as well.”
Priest continued, planting the seeds for what could become a potential in-ring showdown between the two standout performers in the Royal Rumble match.
“You know where I’ll be if you ever want to mix it up,” he added.
