• Damian Priest Gained A Lot Of Weight After WWE Rejected Him (Photo)

During a recent WWE Chronicle episode on RAW Superstar Damian Priest on the WWE Network, it was revealed that Priest let himself go after WWE rejected him over a decade ago.

Here’s what Priest said about it:

“I went deeper down this hole of, ‘To hell with the world, I’m right, everybody else is wrong, so I’m gonna continue’.

Actually, I wasn’t even continuing, I got worse. I decided to put in less work and get lazier because, for whatever reason, I thought that was the right decision and that would help me.

Sometimes I think back and I’m grateful for where I am today but I wonder, ‘How did this happen?’ Because I should not be here with who I was. With who I was, I should be somewhere else not enjoying life.”

Priest then worked hard and dropped over 100 lbs to get in the shape that he’s in today.
