Damian Priest is a popular WWE wrestler and he recently spoke about The Undertaker nearly injuring him one day. The Undertaker is well known for being one of the safest wrestlers in the industry, but just like any other wrestler, he too has made mistakes.
The Undertaker has never injured a wrestler so badly that they were forced into retirement. The Undertaker has also been injured a few times by other wrestlers during his career.
Damian Priest On The Undertaker Nearly Punching His Nose
Damian will be present at WrestleMania 37.
He will be in the corner of Bad Bunny as he fights The Miz. He was a guest on Metal Injection’s Square Circle Podcast to speak about the incident. The incident occurred at the WWE Performance Center. He was learning from The Undertaker at that time.
He recalled that The Undertaker almost punched him in the nose. That could have resulted in The Undertaker breaking Damian’s nose. “We actually got to get in the ring a little bit with Undertaker, and man he put on gloves and everything,” Priest said (h/t to POST Wrestling for the transcription).
“I was like, ‘oh no, he’s gonna beat us up’, and then I actually got to lock [up], throw some blows with him and I remember he was showing somebody something and he threw a punch and he was just explaining something so he wasn’t actually trying to hit me, but he threw it full speed and it touched my face and he pulled back.
I mean, just before he broke my nose and I was like-and I looked around and I was like, ‘man! That was awesome, do it again.’ “[It was] So cool. Again, the fan in me couldn’t help it!” The Undertaker retired after last year’s WrestleMania event.
His last match was against the talented AJ Styles. It was a Boneyard match and a cinematic match. On Joe Rogan’s podcast, The Undertaker revealed that he is truly done with professional wrestling as according to him, he can’t perform the way he used to and he was getting injured while performing in the ring.
The Undertaker has not made any WWE TV appearance ever since he said ‘farewell’ to the WWE Universe. He has however appeared on various TV shows, podcasts and events completely out of character. This signals that he is not committed to living the life of The Undertaker any longer.
