Last week’s episode of Monday Night Raw was monumental for Judgment Day. On the 11/13 episode of Raw, fans saw Damian Priest declaring himself as the leader of The Judgment Day. While the proclamation came in abrupt fashion, Rhea Ripley wanted Priest to take the reins at least for the Survivor Series PLE. Along with that, fans saw two new additions to Judgment Day. JD McDonagh is now identified as an official member of the faction. Along with that, Drew McIntyre has now joined forces with the stable. While McDonagh might not cause any trouble, there is a chance that McIntyre might be the catalyst of bad news for Dominik Mysterio.

How Drew McIntyre joined The Judgment Day?

On last week’s episode of Raw, fans saw Cody Rhodes and Jey Uso lock horns against Judgment Day’s Finn Balor and Damian Priest. When the odds were against Finn Balor outside the ring, McIntyre decided to intervene and attacked Jey Uso. This came as a shock but was expected by many that the previous face might turn a heel someday. Following the attack, he went and stood right next to Rhea Ripley and they both exchanged a smile.

The Scottish Psychopath has shown his frustration with the faces of the promotion. During his fight with Roman Reigns, none of the faces helped him when he needed them the most. What made him even more angry was how the Bloodline had helped Roman Reigns in securing his title. Following that incident, he displayed his disdain for Jey Uso as he played a crucial part in ensuring the Scotsman lost.

As Jey Uso is at odds with Judgment Day, the faction could help as a medium for him to exact his revenge. But it was Rhea Ripley who had indirectly convinced him to side with the heel faction.

With The Eradicator’s inclination toward him, there might be some changes following his official inclusion. Could this mean Dominik Mysterio might be pushed aside?

How Drew McIntyre will affect Dominik Mysterio’s place at Judgment Day?

Following McIntyre’s turn to heel, we have seen him sharing some exchanges with Rhea Ripley on X (formerly Twitter). Ripley shared a picture in which we saw her looking at McIntyre from the same episode when the heel turn happened. Following that, McIntyre shared a picture of both of them shaking hands, following his allegiance with her. There is a possibility that they might kick off a new on-screen chemistry.

The two happen to share a lot of similarities with respect to their nature and demeanor. Due to this, Ripley might get inclined towards him a bit more as compared to Dominik Mysterio. This might sow the seeds of jealousy in Dirty Dom’s heart, as he might not get the same attention. Due to this, Mysterio might resort to betraying his Mami in the near future just because of McIntyre. Do you think Ripley will sideline Mysterio after McIntyre’s inclusion into The Judgment Day?

One take at a time

For me pro wrestling has two things that I like the most, storytelling and fighting. Let’s just say movies are failing to keep me entertained in those departments. I grew up watching WWF and not WWE and any hardcore fan will agree that the two are not the same, but I love both iterations.
