Damian Priest is not related to Roman Reigns. Damian is a wrestler born in New York while Roman comes from Florida Anoa'i family.

Damian aka Luis Martinez is a professional American Wrestler who signed with WWE back in October 2018 from the NXT brand. He was originally a heel, debuting his fight against Matt Riddle. 

Damian featured in the NXT North American Championship storyline in 2020-2021 before moving to the main WWE roster. He made his debut via Royal Rumble in January 2021. 

Meanwhile, Roman Reigns is a veteran WWE wrestler who has played since 2010. He rose to fame after his S.H.I.E.L.D. storyline with his partners Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins. Currently, he is the longest-reigning WWE Universal Champion. 

Damian Preist and Roman Reins are unrelated even if they both share the same career as wrestlers.

Wrestling fans may have assumed they share some blood relation because they look similar. However, they don't share any family ties. Damian hails from Puerto Rico, while Roman Reigns comes from an American Samoan Anoa'i household. 

In terms of career, Roman has made far more career gains than Damian. The wrestling community hopes Damian can get a match with Reigns to elevate his main roster status. 

Roman has a record of retaining the WWE Universal Championship since August 2020. He has made rivalries with many superstars like John Cena, Brock Lesnar, Rey Mysterio, etc. 

Reigns also won the Royal Rumble in 2015 and got hold of major championship belts like the United States, Intercontinental, and the Tag team. He has also received recognition from major sports channels like ESPN, which voted him the Male Wrestler of 2022. CBS Sports also named his rivalry with his cousin Jay Uso the Feud of the year in 2020.

The Universal Champion has also played in movies like Fast & Furious: Hobbs & Shaw and The Wrong Missy.

Roman, the Tribal Chief, also has more fan following, with 6.8 million followers on his Instagram account alone. Likewise, Damian has gained 350k followers on his Instagram.

Damian has yet to make a significant mark on the main WWE roster. However, we can accredit his less popular status due to his recent beginnings, unlike Roman, who established himself a decade ago.
