In the continually evolving world of WWE, recent turns have stirred quite the speculation regarding the fate of The Judgment Day. Two key events stood out: Damian Priest and Finn Balor's shocking loss of the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Titles and Rhea Ripley's persuasive tactics to deter The Archer of Infamy from cashing in at Fastlane 2023.
It's becoming evident that Damian Priest has been embroiled in a series of upsets. He initially suffered an injury as Senor Money in the Bank, sidelining him before Fastlane 2023. To add insult to injury, an unfortunate mishap saw JD McDonagh mistakenly strike Priest with the Money in the Bank briefcase, exacerbating his leg's condition.
Tensions are mounting, especially as Priest remains dissatisfied with Finn Balor's efforts to get McDonagh on the side of The Judgment Day. While Rhea Ripley's intervention prevented Priest from cashing in at Fastlane 2023, many believe he could've easily overpowered Seth Rollins if he had played his card.
Rollins, after a grueling face-off with Shinsuke Nakamura, was arguably not in peak condition to square off against a raring Priest.
Mysterio's Crucial Misstep
Interestingly, while The Archer of Infamy was gearing up to make his move on Monday Night RAW, an obstacle appeared in the form of Dominik Mysterio, who failed to outmaneuver Drew McIntyre and hand the crucial Money in the Bank briefcase to Priest.
Could this be Titanland's subtle maneuver to distance Damian Priest from The Judgment Day? Such a move has repercussions, potentially jeopardizing Priest's cash-in opportunity. Speculation is rife: if Priest parts ways with the faction or is superseded, The Judgment Day might sabotage his contract cash-in, effectively halting his ascent.
Such a turn of events could spell a significant setback in Priest's thriving WWE career. However, the drama didn't stop there. On a recent episode of Monday Night RAW, as JD McDonagh tried to clear the air, Priest was having none of it.
Without the faction's intervention, McDonagh, The Irish Ace, might've faced dire consequences. Yet, Balor and Ripley remained undeterred. They've taken the initiative, demanding a rematch against Rhodes and Uso for the Tag Team Titles — a proposal to which Adam Pearce gave the nod. The WWE universe watches with bated breath.
