But Kevin Owens is not convinced with this WWE idea. After hearing WWE’s idea even Roman Reigns also not convinced about working with Damian Priest because they both feel that adding Damian Priest into the storyline didn’t make any sense.
Here is WWE News:
“But that didn’t work out and Reigns felt it wasn’t the time to introduce a new person and after that, it was pretty much agreed by both Reigns and Owens that it wasn’t the right time to introduce a random person to the main event mix that didn’t seem to fit. As of right now, and this could change, Priest is scheduled for the RAW roster and to debut at the end of the month.”
Kevin Owens also thought that there is no backstory which makes sense that Damian Priest introduces as Kevin Owens’ best friend on SmackDown and also there is nothing common between them.

Here is WWE Updates:
“Owens apparently said that they should redo it where WWE officials book Priest as his tag team partner for his benefit because he keeps getting beaten up by Reigns and Uso and that WWE was doing it to protect him.”
Just like Kevin Owens, Roman Reigns also shot down this WWE idea because he feels it’s unnecessary involvement in the storyline.

#2 WWE Spoilers: WWE declined plans to make Booker T a manager
In WWE history, there so many WWE superstars who come with their ideas to Vince McMahon. But all idea not placed on WWE TV. Superstars get approved their ideas only through Vince McMahon and he is the very choosy person to give his approval on anything.
In a recent interview, former WWE superstars JTG revealed something interesting. He revealed details of the idea that he pitched to WWE when he was in WWE. JTG worked in WWE for four years and try himself out to become top single superstars. During his single WWE run, he pitched so many ideas to the WWE creative team including his idea featuring Booker T.
JTG’s plan was inspired by the plot of Rocky 5. JTG pitched the idea to take himself into WWE Hall of Famer Booker T’s wing. He pitched that he wants to be managed by Booker T because they both had similar kinds of backstories.
WWE rejected a plan to make Booker T the manager of a Superstar
Both JTG and Booker T passed through the same sort of WWE career that at the initial stage of their WWE careers they worked on Tag Team and later part of their career they had singles run. So JTG wants Booker T as his manager.
Here are JTG’s words:
“I pitched the muppet idea. I pitched the Rocky 5 idea. Was it Rocky 5? With Booker T, where he takes me under his wing because we had the same similar roots. You know, they were in a tag team, and now they single.”
“And you know, he takes me under his wing, and then he gets me to a certain caliber. And then I want to do it on my own. Then he’d be like, ‘You’ve got to listen to me,’ and I’ll turn on him. I pitched that idea. That would have been amazing. I loved that idea. That’s my favorite one.” H/T to Sportskeeda Wrestling.
#1 WWE Rumours: Why Vince McMahon does not want Randy Orton in WWE
Former WWE employer Jim Ross said that during 2000 Vince McMahon has doubts about hiring Randy Orton. We all knew Jim Ross as one of the best commentators of his time in WWE. But very few know that He also works behind the scene with Vince McMahon. Jim Ross is the person responsible for big WWE signings during the 1990s and 2000s.
Before joining WWE, Randy Orton enlisted with Marines. During his time there, he received a bad-conduct discharge on two occasions, and because of this, he spent 38 days in Military Prison.
The reason why Vince McMahon did not want Randy Orton in WWE
At the time of Randy Orton’s WWE hiring, Vince McMahon was reservation about him because of his past. But Jim Ross reminds Vince McMahon that he also had some child problems at a younger age.
Here are Jim Ross’ words:
“He [Randy Orton] was, believe it or not, he was somewhat of a controversial hire for us,” Ross said. “Vince was the problem child that went to military school. Randy was the problem child that went to the Marines and got discharged. Big time [Randy Orton’s past was a problem for Vince McMahon]. But, you know, it’s one of those deals where you say. Look, I said, ‘Vince, you got a second chance, so why not this kid?’ He’s only a third-generation performer and both his father and his grandfather were outstanding in-ring guys.”
Later Vince McMahon was convinced by Jim Ross and Randy Orton joined WWE’s Ohio Valley Wrestling development system in 2000. Later in 2002, WWE called him up at the main roster and the rest is history.
