Latest on why Damian Priest had been off WWE TV



During Monday’s episode of Raw, Damian Priest made his return to in-ring action after being off WWE TV for several weeks.

He worked the opening Battle Royal on Raw where he made it to the final two with Riddle, who went over in the contest. Priest ended his feud with The Miz at WrestleMania Backlash where they worked a Zombie Lumberjack match, which was his previous most recent match.

It was reported last week that Priest was off TV due to a back injury that had been bothering him since before WrestleMania 37 in April.

PWInsider reports that Priest was away from TV while he dealt with some personal matters. WWE officials had hoped to have him back in time for the Money in the Bank qualifying matches, but that didn’t happen.

There is no word on what they have planned for him at the Money in the Bank pay-per-view event next month nor SummerSlam in August.
