Wrestling in Puerto Rico is a big deal to Damian Priest.
The WWE United States Champion recently spoke with Lucha Libre Online for an interview, during which he discussed the recent WWE live event in Puerto Rico, claiming it was just as important to him as working WrestleMania.
Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview.
Says wrestling in Puerto Rico was just as big as wrestling at WrestleMania for him: “Unbelievable. These are the parts of the dream that you don’t imagine you’re going to achieve and, for me, wrestling in Puerto Rico at El Cholito (José Miguel Agrelot Coliseum) is up there like fighting at Wrestlemania, for me personally.”
Says he’s never gotten to wrestle in Puerto Rico during his career: “I have never, not even in my career, fought in Puerto Rico, and this being my first time with the company and as the United States Champion is incredible.”
