The latest episode of RAW featured Drew McIntyre’s heel turn, marking his first time since January 2020. He appeared to join The Judgment Day as he shook hands with Rhea Ripley to close the flagship show. McIntyre had previously sent a sarcastic message to Cody Rhodes after assisting Damian Priest and Finn Balor in retaining the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championship. Rhodes and Jey Uso were close to winning the tag titles, but McIntyre intervened and hit the Claymore on Jey, allowing Balor to secure the win for his team.
Following his heel turn, McIntyre mocked Rhodes on Instagram and Twitter, using his favorite catchphrase in a promo. The Scottish Warrior’s turn to the dark side had been rumored since the summer, and it finally came to fruition on RAW, where he initially took the high road during a segment with Seth Rollins, only to swerve the fans later in the main event.
The ending to RAW left a major question unanswered: Is Drew McIntyre now a part of The Judgment Day? WWE’s official website has not confirmed McIntyre as a member of the faction, but rather an alliance. Fans may get more answers next week when McIntyre and Rhea Ripley provide further explanation. If McIntyre does join The Judgment Day, it could lead to the formation of one of the most dominating factions in WWE history, consisting of McIntyre, Rhea Ripley, Finn Balor, Damian Priest, Dominik Mysterio, and JD McDonagh.
