Punishment Martinez signed with WWE and reported to NXT earlier this year, however it now appears as though the former ROH TV Champion has a new name in NXT.
Since his arrival and debut in NXT he has been working NXT Live events under the Punishment Martinez persona, but in a recent NXT spread in the Sports Business Journal he is featured as Damien Priest.
The write-up looks at many current NXT Superstars, and lists Damien Priest as one to keep an eye on. While speaking to the SBJ, Priest possibly gave a little insight into what his new character and gimmick might be about. Priest said:
“I’m not a patient person, but I’m a positive impatient, I’m not willing to just stand by. I’m going to keep pushing until something sticks.”
