Edge formed the Judgement Day faction at WrestleMania 38 as Damian Priest joined up with the Rated R Superstar. Rhea Ripley then joined the faction. However, Edge was then kicked out of the faction as Finn Balor joined them instead.
Rumors suggested that Edge was against WWE’s original idea for the Judgment Day faction, which would have seen supernatural elements being involved.
While speaking with Stephanie Chase of Digital Spy, Damian Priest addressed the aforementioned rumors. Priest shut down the rumors, stating that they were simply inaccurate.
“I guess I understand why people thought that. I don’t know where the actual rumor came from that that’s what was planned, because it never was.
If anything, we had conversations of how we didn’t want that and that included Vince [McMahon] himself, who did not want the group to be supernatural-based. We were all in agreement.
We did some things that seemed that way, I know I did a thing with lightning one night, and the idea wasn’t about supernatural, but it came off that way and then we immediately went, ‘OK, let’s not revisit that because it came off that way’.”
On this week’s episode of Monday Night RAW, Priest actually challenged Edge to a singles match. The match will take place in Edge’s hometown of Toronto. We’ll have to see who will end up winning the match.
