After the match, the music hits as The Judgment Day stands tall and we go to replays. Priest, Balor and Ripley go to leave but they stop when a SUV is shown arriving on the big screen. Edge hops out and he’s making his way into the arena as fans cheer. The Judgment Day changes their minds and now they’re headed back to the ring to wait for a fight.
The Judgment Day is in the ring with a mic. Balor rants and raves to boos, wondering where their documentary is, where is his respect as a legend. Priest says Balor told no lies. Priest goes on ranting about Edge and calls him out to face his judgment day so they can finish him off, finish what was started last week. Priest tosses the mic and they wait. The music finally hits and out comes Edge to a big pop. Edge runs the stage, then stops on the entrance-way and poses as the pyro goes off and fans start chanting his name. Edge says Balor made some good and some absolutely bad points. He says he and Rey Mysterio didn’t come back to steal Balor’s glory, they came back to show him how to reach Edge’s glory but his ego is too big and got in the way. Edge gets a pop from the Pittsburgh crowd. Edge says they were right, Beth isn’t here to watch his back. Edge praises his wife as a badass and warns Ripley to keep her hands to herself or she will find out why Beth is The Glamazon, kid. Edge says he and Priest went to war last week but Edge beat him. So now Edge is by himself, facing the three of them. Edge is on the apron now as he knocks the three and says all those months under his learning three and they didn’t pay attention… Edge says because he didn’t come here alone.

Ripley grabs the stick and takes it from Dominik as fans boo. Edge and Rey rush in as Ripley threatens them with the stick, daring them to do something. Ripley laughs at Edge and Rey as Balor and Priest pull Ripley out of the ring to safety. Priest says they’re not done yet. Edge’s music starts back up as The Judgment Day retreats through the crowd while the two sides stare each other down.
Bianca Belair, Rhea Ripley and Queen Zelina look back fondly on the sisterhood they forged while in NXT and discuss their future aspirations as the next generation of WWE Superstars.
Earlier in the night, RAW aired a promo clip of what had taken place the previous Monday night when Rhea Ripley and Damian Priest had turned on Edge and formed an alliance with Finn Balor instead. Thus creating a new Judgment Day.
The segment for tonight opens with Bianca Belair coming to the ring first. Moments before, Rhea Ripley had been brought up by the commentators, reminding everyone that The Nightmare is the current number one contender to the RAW Women’s Championship at Money in The Bank. Kevin Patrick begins by interviewing Bianca Belair and asking her how prepared she is to face this new version of Rhea Ripley. Bianca begins her response by saying that she is prepared for anything and stays ready so she doesn’t have to get ready. Despite that, she says that she is looking forward to facing Rhea at Money in The Bank; as they are both at the forefront of a new generation of women in the WWE.
Bianca adds that as she was claiming so many different accolades in the company, Rhea was on the other side doing just as amazing. Bianca tells Kevin that she and Rhea used to push each other to get better and that there was mutual respect and she loved that – but ever since Rhea joined The Judgment Day, she no longer recognizes Rhea. She then says that this new version of Rhea is soulless. Bianca says that she is sure that Rhea joined the faction to intimidate people and goes on to say that she is not the one to try and intimidate. Bianca says that Rhea is free to try and intimidate anyone else in the back but when it comes to her, it’s not happening. After claiming that at the end of their match at Money in The Bank, she was still going to walk out as RAW Women’s Champion.
Rhea appears on the titantron, calling out to Bianca to capture her attention. Rhea tells Bianca that she is all talk, but The Judgment Day? They speak through their actions. As she says this, the camera pans out and the rest of The Judgment Day is shown now standing beside Rhea. Finn Balor informs Bianca that they do what they want when they want. He says they are tired of playing nice and tired of taking orders; that is why they knocked Edge off of his pedestal and removed him from The Judgment Day. Damian Priest then speaks up, saying that Edge had the right idea when he initially started the faction, it was meant as a movement for those who were tired of living their lives for others, and says that Edge contradicted himself. Edge had painted himself as their leader and said “don’t do as you’re told”. Damian says that Edge sealed his fate and now The Judgment Day is all equal.
Rhea speaks up again and says that Bianca cares too much about what everyone thinks. He says that maybe if Bianca stopped caring so much about what the WWE Universe thinks, she would actually stand a chance at retaining her RAW Women’s Championship at Money in The Bank. Rhea tells Bianca that she claims she’s the EST but it really sounds like she is trying to convince herself as such. Rhea goes on to say that she doesn’t have to tell people she’s intimidating, she just is. Rhea recalls the previous week in the fatal-four-way, she claims she had her teeth knocked loose but loved it and that in that match, she took what she wanted and is now the number one contender for the RAW Women’s Championship. Rhea says that the only EST Bianca will be at Money in The Bank will be her own greatEST downfall. Rhea then says she will walk the walk and be a two-time RAW Women’s Champion.
Edge, Rhea Ripley, and Damian Priest make their way to the ring as we wait for the reveal of the newest member of THE Judgment Day.
We are back and Priest tells the WWE Universe you know what time it is. He wants everyone to rise for THE Judgment Day. Rhea says control is an illusion. An illusion that led AJ Styles, Liv Morgan, and Finn Balor into believing they would prevail at Hell in a Cell. We were destined for victory and their message is spreading like wildfire. Their destiny has no limitation. Priest says that is truth spoken by Rhea Ripley. Their destiny has no limitations. Rhea’s destiny is to become the Raw Women’s Champion again. She will be one step closer to omnipotence after winning the Fatal Four Way tonight and then beat Bianca at Money in the Bank.
Edge asks for everyone to be quiet since the adult is speaking. Last night, they did exactly what they said they would do. They would stand tall. Before he can go any further, he has to tell these two people how proud he is. How they have grown and blossomed under his learning tree. Rhea is a Superstar Wrecking Machine. Damian stands taller and he oozes confidence. The reason is because they listened. They weren’t the only ones listening. There was someone else listening who heard their message.
Edge says he will introduce the newest member of THE Judgment Day.
Finn Balor makes his way tot he ring and Edge tells Finn he saw the look in his eyes change during their match last night. When Rhea and Damian told him that you reached out, he was excited. You are one of the most spectacular. How did this come to pass?
Finn thanks Edge for the kind words. The look you saw in his eyes last night was clarity. Joining THE Judgment Day was not a choice, it was a calling. He says he is tired of pretending he is someone he is not. Finn says he sees it clearly. He wants to extend that to Damian and Rhea. He saw Damian fight with more conviction than ever before. Rhea stood between us and protected you. I should have been furious. I was impressed and I was in awe. I reached out to them after the show. We have a lot more in common than you realize. We are tired of being told what to do.
Damian tells Edge he is one of the greatest competitors and that is why it was easy for him and Rhea to join us into this journey of darkness. You have taught us to get rid of limitations. We are ready to shed that last limitation and it is you.
