In a riveting showdown on the October 16th edition of WWE Raw, Cody Rhodes and Jey Uso squared off against Finn Bálor and Damian Priest, defending their Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championship. This dramatic bout was a rematch after Bálor and Priest had previously clinched the titles from them during the WWE Fastlane event.
The electrifying encounter between these superstars was packed with intense emotion and unrestrained action. The chaos was elevated with the unexpected intervention from Dominik Mysterio, who strategically played his cards in favor of his stablemates.
On the flip side, Sami Zayn made efforts to support the reigning champions, Cody Rhodes and Jey Uso, but couldn't gain a significant foothold.
Twist of Fate
The tides dramatically shifted when Damian Priest delivered a brutal move, slamming Cody Rhodes onto the commentary table.
This left Jey Uso isolated and battling fiercely to retain the championship titles. However, in a shocking twist, his brother, Jimmy Uso, made a sudden appearance, delivering a Superkick to Jey. This set the stage for Finn Bálor to execute his signature move, the Coup de Grace, seizing the victory.
With this, Bálor and Priest reclaimed their position as the WWE Undisputed Tag Team Champions for the second time.
This triumph raises questions about Rhea Ripley's role in the Judgment Day stable.
As of yesterday, Rhea Ripley provided some insights into her role in the group. She shed light on the group's dynamics, clarifying that while there's no designated leader, she assumes the responsibility of strategizing. Ripley's comments hinted at her instrumental role in planning and decision-making within the stable.
"I believe in our collective strength. While Judgment Day doesn't have a conventional leader, I've naturally found myself in a position where I devise the strategies. My peers have immense faith in my abilities to plan, which is why they often heed my advice," Ripley said.
She further hinted at potential backstage dealings, suggesting that Jimmy Uso's surprise appearance might be a result of a possible alliance with Paul Heyman. The two have indeed been seen communicating recently. This revelation leaves fans buzzing with anticipation for what's next, and how these strategic moves will reshape the landscape of WWE.
