The Judgment Day came out of nowhere as a huge stable in WWE. At this point, they dominate WWE’s television storylines, and it’s no secret that they have a ton of momentum. This isn’t lost within the company, either.
According to Fightful Select, Edge acknowledged that the current iteration of Judgment Day was a better fit than the original plans. The higher-ups at WWE spoke highly of each member involved in the event.
Finn Balor was praised for his easygoing nature and his ability to adapt to various roles throughout the past year’s Judgment Day. He has been a reliable talent for WWE during this process.
Rhea Ripley was put over heavily for working through her knee issues that she’s spoken about in the past. However, her willingness to improve and help get everyone else over by contributing as a manager was also highlighted. Another longtime WWE staffer said it would have been easy for her to just be concerned about her creative surrounding the title. We’ve also heard that there are situations where she was supposed to dominate and was happy to give her opponent more offense.
Damian Priest’s work ethic and his collaboration with Bad Bunny were highly praised as well. Originally, a tag team match was planned, and WWE sources expressed their confidence in Bad Bunny’s in-ring abilities during their WWE Backlash match.
Dominik Mysterio was praised for his busy schedule, which involved fulfilling numerous media obligations due to the success of his new character. WWE has been exposing Dominik to a range of situations and opponents in the ring to help him adapt to different styles and competitors.
We will have to see how Judgment Day’s time on WWE RAW pans out. It seems that they are only getting started, and the company has some great plans as well.
