Vince McMahon had to step down as head of WWE creative when a hush money scandal blew up in his face. Triple H is now leading the company’s creative vision, and that called for a change from McMahon’s intention for one big stable.
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 and this eventually led to Edge being kicked out of the faction as Finn Balor joined them instead. In fact, WWE had a very different plan for the stable under Vince McMahon’s regime.
Dominik Mysterio ended up joining the faction as well and fans are glad to see him doing something worthwhile for a change. During Vince McMahon’s regime, the faction was not taken seriously and largely worked at Main Event.
While speaking to BT Sport, Finn Balor revealed that the old regime had other plans for the stable before Triple H took over WWE Creative and gave them a new sense of direction.
“It was a weird thing because the Judgment Day originally was supposed to, you know, be in a different direction. You know, the night before obviously I got the new draft and it was completely different than what I had expected. I feel it has more than exceeded anything that people had expected and I’m really enjoying it and if people aren’t it doesn’t bother me, because I am.”
Finn Balor is set to square off against AJ Styles at WWE Survivor Series on November 26. We will have to wait and see if he will be able to defeat Styles or not
