The Judgment Day is currently one of the top factions in all of WWE right now. The faction was founded last year and in just one year’s time, they have accomplished a lot in the company. Now it appears Damian Priest made it clear he isn’t worried about the faction despite rising tensions in the past few weeks.

The Judgment Day is comprised of Finn Balor, Damian Priest, Rhea Ripley and Dominik Mysterio. Together, they have been wreaking havoc in WWE. Rhea Ripley and Mysterio have seen the most growth during their time in the faction.

In recent weeks, tensions have been rising between Priest and Finn Balor. This was especially the case during WWE Money in the Bank, where Balor challenged Seth Rollins for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. Priest won the briefcase earlier that night.

He then came to ringside during Balor’s match and accidentally distracted him, costing Balor the match. When Priest tried to cash it in on Rollins during RAW, Balor attacked Rollins and unintentionally helped him escape.


While speaking on WWE’s The Bump, Damian Priest was asked about the situation. Priest stated it was due to a lack of communication and that he is not concerned about The Judgment Day whatsoever.

“That was one of those situations where [it was a] miscommunication. We hadn’t talked to Finn, and we weren’t sure if I gonna actually cash in. But obviously, Dom, myself and Rhea had discussed it. In the moment, Dom was like, ‘You should do it right now.’ So he gave me the briefcase, and I thought about it. I was like, you know what, maybe I shouldn’t wait. Maybe I’ll do this right now. Unfortunately, Finn came out, and I wasn’t expecting that. It was just a lack of communication. I have a whole year with this thing if I want to, so I’m good being patient.

I guess that’s fair. Obviously, it’s no secret we were having some arguments and whatnot on-screen. The whole world could see us. So yeah, but I have siblings, we argue, but we’re still a family, it’s okay. I think that’s where Finn and I are. We’re having some disagreements. I think our focus is a little different, and our goals, and they’re just kind of stepping on each other. But that doesn’t mean that we have a personal issue with each other. We just gotta be better at communicating, that’s all.

I was simply just standing up. I wanted Finn Balor to beat him. I was out there, not to cash in, realistically. I was there to make Seth feel the pressure of me cashing in, throw him off his game so that my buddy could beat him for the title. Unfortunately, Finn Balor, again, this is our own fault, this was a lack of communication. He thought I was trying to do something else, and his eyes drifted away from the prize, and unfortunately, he got beat. But yeah, my intention was never to cash in on Finn. Actually, I wasn’t even going to cash in on Seth in that moment. I wanted Finn Balor to win.

We’re a machine, ain’t no stopping us. I’m not concerned at all. The Judgment Day is not going anywhere, we’re good. Like I said, families can have arguments, but they’re still a family. Nobody’s going anywhere. I am not concerned. Rhea and Dom, I’m not concerned. We’re just as good as ever. Just because we have arguments or disagreements doesn’t mean we stop ruling the WWE. We still run Monday Night Raw. The Judgment Day will always rise.”

We will have to wait and see whether The Judgment Day will end up kicking out Finn Balor somewhere down the line. Regardless, fans are certainly invested in the faction’s current storyline.
