Damian Priest Reveals He Can’t Cash in MITB Briefcase While Seth Rollins is Injured – Many fans have wondered why Money in the Bank briefcase holder Damian Priest has not cashed in his contract while Seth Rollins is hobbling but is still present on the show.
Speaking to West Sport, Priest explained that since Rollins is not medically cleared, he can’t compete in an official match.
“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.
