We see what happened between Liv Morgan and Rhea Ripley two weeks ago on Raw.
We return to the ring where Edge, Damian Priest, and Rhea Ripley have been standing.
Priest tells everyone to rise to show respect to The Judgement Day. Priest says Edge made an offer for anyone to follow their mission statement and join the group. One aspect of that mission statement is modesty. Damian says that him and Rhea are different from everyone else. Edge saw it. Edge showed them the way and set them free. They had been sheep like all of you, stuck in the mud trying to figure out the alleged right thing. It is like everyone in the back waiting for instructions. It is who you are and what you do. The truth hurts.
The one attribute you are missing is courage. Courage to be who you are. Accept who you are and be proud of who you are. None of you have that courage. We can help you. First, you have to help yourselves.
Rhea tells Liv she knows that Liv uses her heart more than her head. Stop listening to the peasants on Twitter and the simpletons in attendance. I might forgive you for failing me in the past if you think for yourself. Save yourself, like I saved myself. Join the Judgment Day.
Edge says they are truth. A truth that is right in front of most of your faces, but you are too afraid to see it. The truth will set you free. The Judgment Day is power. It is physical power and mental power. It is an opportunity for everyone to join them, recreate yourself and rewrite your career. Do it under my learning tree and you can be the best.
Imagine Tom Brady, Wayne Gretzky, or Michael Jordan giving you this opportunity. I was not given this chance like a John Cena. I am at the top because i am a miracle of hard work. You are afraid of hard work and success. You are content to watch your boss make 10 times what you earn by doing little of what you do. You are sheeple. We are not afraid to grab at it. We offer a mentality. It can be offered to all of you. If you accept it, you will wake up. For anyone here, it is a chance to head butt glass ceilings to bits. The same glass ceiling I shattered decades ago.
Who will be next? Who will be savvy enough to know to join us? Will it be Tommaso Ciampa? Will it be Corey Graves? Alexa Bliss? Drew Mcintyre? Liv Morgan? Finn Balor? What about you AJ Styles? Surely standing side by side and shoulder to shoulder with us is better than standing eye to eye. Join us and maybe your kids can start calling me Uncle Edge. The choice is yours and choose wisely.

She’s done signing autographs at the airport for all the little kids who come to her saying they want to be like her when they grown up, then she goes online the next day and sees the autographs on eBay. She says she’s done being used and that’s why she joined The Judgment Day. Fans give her the “What!?” treatment now.

Rhea says Liv can no longer ride her coattails and tonight she will give her a reason to cry when she destroys her. Edge hypes Priest and Ripley up some more and their unrealized potential – Priest as The Punishment, Ripley as The Eradicator, they were ships without a rudder but he is that rudder, with the direction. They are now his saints of fate. Edge reveals how he recently approached Ripley and talked to her about her true potential, which led to the split from Liv. Edge takes the credit for breaking up your favorite tag team, as he told Ripley that Liv was holding her back.
