The Judgment Day has firmly established itself as one of WWE’s premier factions since their debut in 2022 and JD McDonagh would eventually join their ranks as well. Unfortunately, he ended up having a horrible travel experience after RAW this week and called out Air Canada for the same and even claimed he wouldn’t return to Canada.

The July 8 episode of WWE RAW featured The Judgment Day in numerous segments, especially because of Dominik Mysterio and Liv Morgan’s storyline. Even Rhea Ripley returned at the end of the show.

JD McDonagh was part of the Judgment Day segments, but he had a very long night ahead after RAW. McDonagh took to Twitter and detailed the nightmare travel experience he had to endure because of Air Canada.

McDonagh stated that he left the hotel for the airport at 3:45 AM. By 5:30 AM, he had checked his bags, gone through security, and was on a flight from Ottawa to Toronto. At 7:30 AM, his flight was delayed, and customs were busy, causing him to miss his connection. He booked a new flight from Toronto to Montréal to Orlando, with his bag rerouted. At 9:00 AM, there was a problem with the new plane, leading to a deplaning and delay.


At 11:00 AM, the replacement plane had an issue, causing another deplaning. This delay meant he missed the Montréal connection to Orlando, so he booked a new flight from Toronto to Fort Myers instead. At 11:45 AM, he had to leave the airport to sort out his bags at the baggage help desk, dealing with poor customer service.

By 12:45 PM, he queued through security and US customs for the third time that day. At 1:30 PM, he finally flew from Toronto to Fort Myers. Upon landing at 4:30 PM, his bags were lost, so he filled out forms, rented a car, and drove 3.5 hours to Orlando. He arrived home at 8:57 PM and went straight to bed, feeling exhausted and then claimed that if he never returned to Canada, the fault would be on Air Canada.

”Here’s my Tuesday kids:
3.45am – Leave hotel for airport
5.30am – Check bags, security, fly Ottawa-Toronto
7.30am – Flight delayed & Customs busy, connection missed, new flight booked (Toronto-Montréal-Orlando), bag rerouted
9am – Problem with the new plane, deplaned/delayed

11am – Problem with the NEW, new plane, deplaned again. Now gonna miss Montréal connection to Orlando. New flight booked. Toronto-Fort Myers instead
11.45am – Have to leave the airport and go to baggage help desk to sort the bags (Worst customer service of all time)

12.45pm – Queue thru security and US Customs for the 3rd time today
1.30pm – Fly Toronto-Fort Myers
4.30pm – Land in Fort Myers. Bags are lost. Fill out forms. Rent a car. Drive 3.5hrs to Orlando
8.57pm – Arrive home & straight to bed, a shell of a man.

If I never return, blame @AirCanada”

JD McDonagh is not the only Judgment Day member who had to deal with flight issues recently, as Damian Priest ended up missing the June 28th edition of Friday Night SmackDown at Madison Square Garden because of plane issues as well. Regardless, we hope no one has to deal with such plane issues ever again.
