“Call me any day he wants to get in the ring” – Damian Priest challenges underused WWE legend

Damian Priest laid out an open challenge to Jeff Hardy and stated that the former WWE Champion was one of many wrestlers he was hoping to work with.

Priest has been a prominent player on RAW since being called up to the main roster earlier this year. He won his first title on the main roster at SummerSlam, when he defeated Sheamus for the US title.

In a recent interview with Metro, Priest stated that there were several WWE legends on both RAW and SmackDown that he wanted to face in the future. He even joked with Triple H backstage about having a last-minute match at WrestleMania.

“As far as other people, man, Jeff Hardy can call me any day he wants to get in the ring. I’ll be game for that, it’s Jeff Hardy. There’s a lot of legends that are still here and can still go, and I’m game for it. And that’s just talking RAW, we’re not even talking about the SmackDown roster. As far as RAW goes, there’s a slew of guys, but of course I want the top guys,” said Damian Priest.

Priest and Jeff Hardy haven’t locked horns in a match in WWE yet since the former was called up to the main roster earlier this year.
