WWE Wrestlemania Backlash: Damian priest defeats the Miz in one of the most bizarre lumberjack matches: Vince McMahon and Co are known for throwing something uncanny before the WWE universe, and one such instance was witnessed in the WWE Wrestlemania Backlash lumberjack match between The Miz and Damian Priest.

Priest emerged victorious in this ludicrous match
The freakish environment bothered the two competitors in the ring, but despite all the odds, Damian Priest ends up with a victory over the Miz.

The issues between the two started way back at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view when Priest sent both Miz and Morrison over the top rope to end their chance of main eventing Wrestlemania 37. Bad Bunny, whose DJ got destroyed by The Miz in the same night, also joined forces with Priest and since then, the battle between the two teams has been evident.

With this triumph, Damian Priest maintains his emphatic undefeated single’s run ever since making his way into the main roster. Also, it seems like this storyline has finally come to an end, and we could see Damian Priest involved in something new.

What’s next for Priest?
Damian Priest’s impressive run might help him getting a massive push in the upcoming weeks. He could get involved in a championship storyline as well. Currently, we can’t see a proper challenger for the United States Champion Sheamus, who has been running his mouth every week on Raw. With Damian Priest at the top of his game, he could be an apt challenger for Sheamus to take his United States title.
