There’s your explanation. With so so many people on the WWE rosters, it can be difficult to find something for everyone to do. One of the worst things that can happen is to see someone just disappear with no explanation. If nothing else, it can suggest that there is nothing for them to do on the show and that can be quite the problem. Someone has been missing from WWE TV, though it is not clear why.

There are conflicting reports on the absence of Damian Priest. According to Wrestling Observer Live, Damian Priest has been out of action in recent weeks due to a bad back. Priest has had the injury since at least WrestleMania 37, though he worked through the injury on the show. However, according to Fightful Select, Priest did have a back injury but it is not the reason he has been missing from television. Instead, he has been off due to WWE creative having nothing for him.

After a two year run in NXT, where he wont he North American Title, Priest made his main roster debut at the Royal Rumble as part of the Monday Night Raw roster. He was immediately paired together with Bad Bunny in a feud against Miz and John Morrison, with Priest and Bunny eventually defeating them at WrestleMania 37. His most recent match took place on the May 17 Monday Night Raw when he defeated Morrison in a lumberjack match.

Priest is worth waiting on. Check out what WWE will get when he is back:

Opinion: What matters most here is Priest’s health, as he seems to be suffering from some kind of an injury and that might be why he is gone. If that is not the case though, this is another good example of why WWE makes fans throw their hands up and change the channel. There is nothing for Priest to do on Monday Night Raw? WWE really can’t come up with anything for him? I have a really hard time buying that, but I could completely believe it.

What do you think of Priest? What do you want him to do when he gets back? Let us know in the comments below.
