Damian Priest analyzes WWE releases

In recent months, but also over the last few years, WWE has devoted a lot to doing some big "cleanups" of its roster, firing many athletes it no longer considered necessary on its rosters, including big names from the top of the league card of the Stamford company, such as Bray Wyatt, Braun Strowman, Lana, Nia Jax, Aleister Black, Rusev and many others.

In fact, since the beginning of the global pandemic, WWE has started a very particular path, which has led to more than 300 employees being released, with WWE hiding behind budget cuts, to justify all these layoffs, which the WWE Universe fans have absolutely not liked, just like the insiders and precisely the same released.

By now, it seems that in WWE the idea of ​​thinking that everyone is in danger has become normal, with the perception that no one is "safe" from a firing, which is leading several wrestlers to also feel guilty for the releases of colleagues.

This is exactly what the US champion of Monday Night Raw wanted to talk about, in the last interview he took part in. WWE RAW's United States Champion Damian Priest will be taking on SmackDown's Intercontinental Champion Shinsuke Nakamura at Survivor Series on Sunday, 21 November.

The Archer of Infamy took to Twitter ahead of tonight's RAW to praise his opponent and partner Rick Boogs. Although Priest has a ton of respect for Nakamura, he will be fighting to uphold the honor of the Red brand at Survivor Series.

"I can't speak for anyone else, but since my Rumble debut, I've only been a part of the #WWERaw brand. So this means something to me. Respect for @ShinsukeN. @rickboogswwe is a homie. But at #SurvivorSeries, I plan to show out! You know what time it is.

My name... #LiveForever", wrote Damian Priest.

Damian Priest comments on the releases

In his latest interview with Metro microphones, the secondary champion of Monday Night Raw, he wanted to talk about the sense of guilt he feels he has with many other colleagues, looking at the continuous layoffs brought to the scene by WWE.

Although both he and his colleagues have nothing to do with this story, Damian Priest still wanted to say: "It's unfortunate, of course. It's not just about our business, that's how all businesses work now. I've lost a lot more jobs and more opportunities than I can count.

It is an unfortunate part of life. Especially in a business where you live your dream - so it hurts because we care about these people. We know that they are bad, they are hurt and therefore we are also bad. He is unhappy. It's like survivors' guilt, but at the same time... it's a weird feeling."
