3 Challengers who can be the next in line to battle Damian Priest for the World Heavyweight championship

After almost a year of relentless waiting, Damian Priest finally managed to cash in the Money in the Bank and claim the Heavyweight Championship for himself. After a ferocious battle between Drew McIntyre and Seth Rollins, it was the former who won the crown to derail the current champion.

But while trying to rub it in the face of CM Punk, it backfired for the Scottish Psychopath as he was upended by the Straight Edge Superstar and then after his vicious attack on him, Damian’s music hit and we all know what happened thereafter.

Given the phenomenal rise of Priest, he is now one of the mainstays of the company and it is going to be intriguing to witness what happens from here on. Who are the ones who can challenge Damian Priest for the title and how would things pan out from there? Well, with the roots of Judgment Day already loosening up and Priest now being turned into a babyface after the crowd has already taken a liking to him, the rivalry will depend on a lot of factors. Here are three superstars who can challenge the Archer of Infamy for the prized belt.


#1 Gunther

The Ring General may finally sniff out his chance of challenging the Archer of Infamy after he was stripped off the WWE Intercontinental Championshyip by Sami Zayn. Gunther already had an early feud with Damian in the late hours ahead of the Showcase of Immortals. With two super forces going up against each other, this is going to be an exciting clash.

#2 Chad Gable

Gable’s recent turn more as a serious contender for the titles may make him a favourite for this dream run. Even though he is still miles away from the Heavyweight Championship title, yet, he makes quite a good competitor. He had already defeated Gunther once and he comes up with some solid strength. So who knows.

#3 Braun Strowman can go after Damian Priest

It has been an eternity since Braun Strowman made his appearance in the WWE. Well, we are all aware of what the Monster amongst men is capable of and how he can wreck Damian Priest completely. With all of that being said, this will be a rivalry to savour if the two clash.
