The Judgment Day is a villainous professional wrestling stable performing in WWE on the Raw brand. The group is currently composed of Damian Priest, Rhea Ripley, Finn Bálor, "Dirty" Dominik Mysterio, JD McDonagh, and Carlito as an associate. Priest is the current World Heavyweight Champion in his first reign. Ripley is a former Women's World Champion, with her reign being tied with Bayley for the longest in the title's history. Mysterio is a former two-time NXT North American Champion whereas Bálor and Priest are former two-time Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions.

The stable was founded in 2022 by its previous leader Edge at WrestleMania 38 with a supernatural/dark gothic theme; Priest was the first to join with Edge, followed by Ripley. Edge was then expelled from the group following Bálor's addition and the supernatural elements gradually faded and morphed into more of a street thug/goth bully group. Later that year, Mysterio betrayed his father to join the group after feuding against them. In 2023, Bálor began to recruit his real-life student, McDonagh, who officially joined the group in November.

The Judgment Day have achieved several championship milestones in WWE. They are the second stable (after The Bloodline) to have simultaneously hold titles across all three brands (Raw's Women's World Championship, the Raw and SmackDown Tag Team Championships, and NXT's North American Championship); Bálor and Priest being the only tag team to win the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championship twice; and the first stable to simultaneously hold the men's and women's World Championships. Also, Ripley won the 2023 women's Royal Rumble whereas Priest won the 2023 men's Money in the Bank as part of the stable.

History

Formation and Edge's leadership (2022)

On the February 21, 2022, episode of Raw, Edge reflected on all the WrestleMania moments in his career and then he issued an open challenge for WrestleMania 38.[1] The following week, his challenge was accepted by AJ Styles, to which Edge responded by performing a low blow on Styles before hitting him with a one-man con-chair-to, turning heel for the first time since 2010.[2] At the event on April 3, Edge defeated Styles following a distraction by Damian Priest.[3][4]

Following WrestleMania, Edge and Priest revealed The Judgment Day as the name of the team.[5] At WrestleMania Backlash, despite Priest being barred from ringside, Edge defeated Styles again after interference from a masked individual, later revealed to be Rhea Ripley, who became the stable's newest member.[6] At Hell in a Cell on June 5, The Judgment Day defeated Styles, Finn Bálor, and Liv Morgan in a six-person mixed tag team match.[7] The next night on Raw, Edge introduced Bálor as the newest member of The Judgment Day, however, Bálor, Priest, and Ripley suddenly attacked Edge with his own signature con-chair-to move, kicking him out of the group.[8][9]

Post Edge (2022–present)

Addition of Dominik Mysterio (2022)

The Judgment Day then began a feud with The Mysterios (Rey Mysterio and Dominik Mysterio) in an attempt to recruit Dominik into their ranks. Bálor and Priest were defeated by the Mysterios at SummerSlam after interference from the returning Edge. At Clash at the Castle, Bálor and Priest were defeated by Edge and Rey. After the match, Dominik attacked Edge with a low blow, followed by a clothesline to Rey, turning heel for the first time in his career.[10] Dominik officially joined The Judgment Day on the following episode of Raw, helping the group attack Edge and Rey.[11] The following week, Edge defeated Dominik by disqualification after interference from The Judgment Day. After the match, they attacked Edge with a steel chair, ending the attack by placing the chair on Edge's leg and Bálor performing a Coup de Grâce on the chair.[12] Two weeks later, Edge returned and challenged Bálor to an "I Quit" match at Extreme Rules, and Bálor accepted.[13] At the event on October 8, Bálor defeated Edge. In the closing moments, Ripley positioned Edge's wife, Beth Phoenix, for a con-chair-to and Edge reluctantly submitted. After the match, Ripley still performed the con-chair-to on Phoenix.[14]

Around this time, The Judgment Day continued recruiting Styles, who turned down several offers to join the group. On the October 10 episode of Raw, Styles came out to seemingly accept the offer, but rejected it and introduced the returning Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson. A brawl then ensued between the two teams.[15] At Crown Jewel, Bálor, Priest, and Dominik defeated The O.C. (Styles, Anderson and Gallows) after interference from Ripley. On the following episode of Raw, The O.C. introduced the returning Mia Yim as their solution to counter Ripley. At Survivor Series WarGames on November 26, Bálor was defeated by Styles while Ripley's team was defeated by Team Belair in a WarGames match.[16] On the following episode of Raw, The Judgment Day defeated The O.C. in an eight-person mixed tag team match to end their feud.

Following the match, Ripley was attacked by the returning Nia Jax, sidelining her for two weeks. At NXT No Mercy on September 30, Dominik lost the NXT North American Championship to Trick Williams, ending his first reign at 74 days. However, Dominik regained the title in a rematch on the October 3 episode of NXT.[38][39] At Fastlane on October 7, Bálor and Priest lost the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championship to Cody Rhodes and Jey Uso after McDonagh accidentally hit Priest's knee with the briefcase, ending their first reign at 35 days, but regained the titles in a rematch 9 days later.[40][41] At Crown Jewel on November 4, Priest attempted to cash in on Rollins after his successful title defense against Drew McIntyre, but Zayn, who defeated McDonagh on the kickoff show, stopped him and ran off with the briefcase before he could officially do so.
