That could have been worse. Professional wrestlers are very hard workers who put in a lot of effort to make everything that they are doing come off as perfectly as possible. That does not mean everything is going to go as they play though as mistakes can happen at times. That was the situation over the weekend and now we know a bit more about what happened.

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: Long Time Coming: AEW Star Undergoing Surgery To Deal With Injury After 12 Years

Over the weekend at WWE Clash At The Castle, Damian Priest slipped while attempting a springboard dive and got his leg tied up in the ropes. The leg played a role in the rest of the match, which Priest went on to win. According to Fightful Select, Priest was fine after the match and was selling the injury throughout. Priest received backstage praise for his work in the match.

It was quite the effort. Check out Priest’s work, plus what else he has been doing:

Opinion: That is quite the relief as you never want to see someone get hurt in any way, especially in the middle of a major run. Priest has been doing some very good stuff as of late and it’s great to hear that he is ok after such a convincing effort. He got a big win and can go on to keep the title for the time being, which should make for some rather interesting times going forward.

What did you think of the match? Who will take the title from Priest? Let us know in the comments below.
