On the Monday Night Raw episode that premiered Monday, July 8, 2024, there was a wonderful and welcome surprise for the WWE Universe when Rhea Ripley returned after a few weeks of absence due to a shoulder injury, at the hands of Liv Morgan during a backstage segment.

Mami interrupted the unorthodox celebration between Liv Morgan and Dominik Mysterio after winning the main event of the evening in a pair match against Rey Mysterio and Zelina Vega, with the two who after weeks of flirting, A stolen kiss and provocations from the champion, were lying in the ring almost ready to imitate Edge and Lita, with Rhea who intervened by running away her rival and yelling at Dirty Dom before leaving the ring angry pushing him away.

After what happened, and since Liv Morgan has increasingly approached a heel role abandoning the guise of babyface beloved by fans, PWInsider gave a curious backstory on The Eradicator and his status in WWE: "With his official return to the promotion last night, PWInsider.com learned that Rhea Ripley is now listed as a babyface internally by World Wrestling Entertainment.

The other members of Judgment Day remain listed as heel currently."

Update on Rhea Ripley

Surely it was only a matter of time before one of them became a babyface, with Damian Priest who lately was on the way to this change after he found himself in disagreement with some actions made by his stable company, one of all Finn Bálor.

In the general picture, surely the two most likely to make this change were the Terror Twins, namely Damian Priest and Rhea Ripley, given how the storylines were managed, but we just have to wait and see all the developments.

Unfortunately, USA Network cut the show when The Eradicator left the ring after refusing to hug Dominik and yelling something in his face, but luckily WWE posted a video of what happened, showing us a Dom who tries to justify himself to her and to explain while Rhea doesn’t want to know anything about it and pushes him away.
