The Royal Rumble is famous for the comebacks and returns. That however, isn’t the only feature of it. The marquee match is also popular for debuts such AJ Styles and more recently, former NXT North American Champion Damian Priest.

Huge plans in store for Damian Priest in the WWE
According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the WWE are hoping that Damien Priest’s association with Bad Bunny will help him become a fan favourite among the Latino community.
“The idea is Priest will get the rub in the Latino community in particular of being Bunny’s tag team partner.” The report read.
With Wrestlemania season around, there is speculation that Priest will team up with Bad Bunny to take on Miz and Morrison at the Grandest stage of all. The WWE like to feature their celebrities on their big 4 shows and with the WWE set to allow fans to attend the event, there is more than a passing chance that this is where they are headed.
This is a much better plan than the one they originally had in store for Priest. The WWE initially planned to debut him on SmackDown as Kevin Owens’ best friend. The idea was ruled out by Owens himself. He claimed that it made no sense and Roman Reigns seconded it.
