WWE Superstar Damian Priest recently gave his thoughts on AEW owner Tony Khan’s decision to purchase Ring of Honor wrestling.
Before signing for WWE in 2018, Priest worked on and off for 4 years under the ring name Punishment Martinez for ROH.
Speaking with Wrestling Inc, the former United States Champion gave his thoughts on the acquisition made by Khan.
“Anytime that there’s another avenue for the boys and girls to go to, it’s a positive,” Priest said. “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+.” H/T Wrestling Inc
Tony Khan’s purchase of ROH seems to be paying off as the recent Pay Per View ‘Death Before Dishonor’ was one of the most successful in the company’s history.
