Damian Priest speaks about Vince McMahon

Damian Priest is currently on the Raw roster and is part of the faction called 'The Judgment Day' That group has changed abruptly since the former US champion kicked out leader Edge with the help of Rhea Ripley. The stable is now led by Finn Balor.

'The Archer of Infamy' gave an interview to Steve Fall for 'NBC Sports Boston', in which he touched on a myriad of topics. At one point, the conversation turned to Vince McMahon. The now-former WWE boss has a reputation for being intimidating and rude to his underlings.

These rumors have escalated further following the recent scandal that hit him. Recall that Vince is undergoing an internal investigation for giving $3 million to a former employee with whom he had entered into an extramarital affair.

Priest urged fans and insiders not to trust everything they read around.

Damian Priest reflects on Vince McMahon

"The first time I met Vince McMahon it didn't go as I expected. I thought I would find a stern man with an intimidating attitude because I had heard this around.

Backstage there was this perception of him. Vince told me not to believe everything I heard around ”- said Damian Priest. “Business tends to distort people's perception. Ultimately, we are talking about a human being trying to run a business.

McMahon can also be very friendly and funny” - added Damian. Wrestling expert Bill Apter commented on Vince's recent appearances on Raw and SmackDown: “If his appearance on SmackDown was surprising, it was even more surprising on Raw.

Nobody expected him to appear on the red show as well. It must be said that the fans greeted him with a warm welcome. Vince is making sure that the public loves him and takes his side in this very complicated period of his life."

Bill Apter, Hall of Fame journalist and Sportskeeda Senior Editor, was just as taken aback as the fans were. He shared his thoughts following the said segment. Is he garnering public sympathy ahead of the upcoming trials? "There was no advance notice that Vince McMahon would appear on RAW.

The fans gave him a very warm welcome. He's making the public love him and has them on his side during this very uncomfortable time of his business life," Apter said. "He is a promoter. He's promoting it the way he knows best -- with the highest praise for his next big attraction -- Cena."
