Judgment Day Promo

Edge: We formed The Judgment Day because we were tired of being sheep like all of you. Because what did that get us? What did that get me? You can say, it got me a Hall of Fame ring, big deal. I’m bigger than the Hall of Fame. You know what it also got me? You can point to any area on my body and I had a surgery on it. And do any of you care? Did you care that I fought to get this back after nine years? No, you didn’t, instead what you do is you sit there with your supposed morals. But what you really do is hide your anger and resentment, and you go home on your little devices, you little keyboard warriors with your stupid asinine comments. Oh, yeah, you hate it because it’s true. We hold a mirror up to each and everyone one of you and you don’t like what you see. Number One, because you’re ugly. And we could look in any mirror that we want and we love what we see. And AJ Styles and all of you morons here in Harford, and if you live here, you are morons. What all of you don’t seem to understand is that nothing and no one can touch us.

Damian Priest: You know, truth hurts. Individually, Edge and I were capable of destroying each and every single one of your favorites. But together, we become more. Together, we’re something else.  And if you thought that was bad, and you thought that was dangerous, imagine, just imagine adding an instrument of brutality. With that being said, all rise for the newest member of The Judgment Day, Rhea Ripley.

Rhea Ripley: Joining Judgment Day was the easiest decision of my life. Edge, Damian, I saw the two of you change for the better and I wanted that for myself. I am done with signing autographs at the airport for all the little kids who come running up to me saying they just want to be like me when they grow up. The next day, I go online and I see those same autographs being sold on eBay. I am done being used. And that is why I joined The Judgment Day. Speaking of being used, I have unfinished business to attend to. Liv Morgan, you no longer ride my coattails. Tonight, I’m going to give you a reason to cry when I absolutely destroy you.

Edge: Unrealized potential, that’s what this has always been about. Damian, The Punishment. Rhea, The Eradicator. They were ships without a rutter. I am the rutter. I am their direction. They have taken fate into their own hands. And now they are my saints of fate. Yeah, well, listen up, a few weeks ago, I pulled Rhea aside and I told her in my humble hall of fame opinion that Liv Morgan was holding her down. She was an albatross around her neck. An albatross the shape of a human sized LOL Doll. Poor, Liv. I am the reason your favorite tag team split up, you’re welcome. Because I saw this woman and I saw wasted domination, I saw a juggernaut who was content to live in the slow lane instead of running everything over like she can. My message, no, it’s more than a message, my movement is not done, we aren’t finished yet, and we’re looking for more.
