Damian Priest Reveals He Can’t Cash In MITB Due to Seth Rollins Not Being Medically Cleared
Damian Priest has finally explained why he hasn’t cashed in on Seth Rollins.
Since early last month, Seth Rollins has been on the shelf with a knee injury, but he’s still the current WWE World Heavyweight Champion. Many fans have pointed to the fact that even with the champion at a disadvantage week after week, the current Money In The Bank briefcase holder still refuses to take the opportunity to cash-in on a wounded Seth Rollins.
Speaking to West Sport, Priest finally broke his silence on the matter, and went on to state that since Rollis is not officially medically cleared, he can’t compete in an official match as of now.
I’m based on Raw. Being that Seth Rollins is the champion, unfortunately, he’s not medically cleared. I can’t cash in right now. Officially, he can’t be in a match. I kind of have to wait until he’s cleared or, if I find myself on the other show, it’d be different. That champion [Roman Reigns] is not really around all the time either. It’s one of those things where I’m biding my time. I still have until July 1. I have plenty of time. I don’t want to risk doing something that I shouldn’t. Five times, I’ve attempted, but didn’t cash in. I’d rather that than a failed cash in. I’m just being extra careful right now. This is not going to go to waste. In my head, I have to become World Champion, whether it’s on Raw or SmackDown. Either way, I have to become a major title holder and I have to be extra careful about it. I still have time. Obviously, you have WrestleMania coming up. That’s always a good time. Whether it’s Mania, the SmackDown before, the Raw after, it’s always an exciting time. You never know what’s going to happen,” he said.
As stated above, he has actively tried to cash in, but each and every time that he attempts to do so, he’s stopped by either his enemies, or those that want Rollins for themselves.
