In the dynamic world of WWE, affiliations and loyalties can mean everything. The WWE universe has been abuzz about J.D. McDonagh's association with The Judgment Day faction. McDonagh's place within the group becomes more of a puzzle as the story unfolds, creating a tug-of-war of opinions among WWE fans and insiders.
While McDonagh has earned the trust of Finn Balor due to a longstanding friendship that precedes their WWE days, other members of The Judgment Day have reservations. Damian Priest, Rhea Ripley, and Dominik Mysterio have expressed their scepticism about embracing McDonagh wholeheartedly.
Yet, in a dramatic turn at the WWE Payback, McDonagh made a remarkable effort to save Damian Priest from a pin in the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championship match, leaving fans and critics questioning his true loyalties.
Balor Trusts McDonagh
During a recent segment on "WWE's The Bump," Balor and Priest delved deeper into the rumours surrounding McDonagh's relationship with the faction.
Balor commented, "There's a wave of speculation surrounding J.D. McDonagh's alignment with The Judgment Day. But what's crystal clear is my two-decade-long bond with him. I trust J.D., and that trust has its roots." It's worth noting that McDonagh's wrestling roots can be traced back to Bray, County Wicklow, Ireland.
McDonagh honed his skills under the mentorship of Paul Tracey and Finn Balor. This shared heritage and training created a bond between Balor and McDonagh, which later manifested in their collaboration with WWE. While Balor's trust in McDonagh seems unshakable, Damian Priest remains on the fence.
Priest remarked, "I'm reserving judgment. There's still much to uncover about McDonagh's allegiance. For now, it's a wait-and-watch game." McDonagh's evolving relationship with The Judgment Day intrigues and captivates WWE enthusiasts.
Will he become the faction's mainstay, or is another twist awaiting the fans? Stay tuned for more updates on this developing WWE storyline as the drama unfolds.
