Reason why Damian Priest Missed SmackDown Appearance

Damian Priest, the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, was scheduled to appear at Madison Square Garden for last night’s WWE SmackDown to face “Main Event” Jey Uso. However, due to unexpected travel issues, Priest was unable to attend as he was stuck on a plane. Despite his efforts to make it, including updating fans on social media, Priest expressed his disappointment in not being able to main event at The Garden.

Priest shared his frustration on social media, stating, “trying my best to make it. Plane issues making it very difficult.” An hour later, he updated fans again: “Unfortunately the honor of main eventing The Garden is not possible tonight. Still haven’t taken off. Stuck on a plane on a runway. Very disappointed and apologies to my people. This one hurts. Enjoy the show! #SmackDown I’m sure will be awesome.”

Looking ahead, Priest is set to defend his title against Seth Rollins at this year’s Money in the Bank in Toronto. Rollins, returning from surgery, aims to reclaim the title. The winner will face “The Ring General” Gunther, the 2024 King of the Ring winner, at WWE SummerSlam, as WWE has added title shot stakes to this year’s King and Queen of the Ring events.
