In the ever-evolving world of WWE, the faction known as The Judgment Day has risen to prominence as a force to be reckoned with. While some may argue that The Bloodline holds the top spot in the group hierarchy, The Judgment Day currently boasts a unique distinction—every member of their RAW powerhouse holds championship gold.
Their stranglehold on titles, coupled with their unified gang mentality, has earned them both respect and resentment across the WWE landscape. In this volatile environment, The Judgment Day has gathered numerous enemies, from superstars on RAW, SmackDown, and even NXT, who often find themselves at odds with the formidable stable. JD McDonagh appears to be the exception, making efforts to insinuate himself into the group’s ranks.
Among the faction’s adversaries are prominent names like Raquel Rodriguez, Trick Williams, Dragon Lee, Jey Uso, and Cody Rhodes. Each of these individuals represents a distinct cause or mission, contrasting with the unrelenting dominance of The Judgment Day.
Notably, one recent rival, Carmelo Hayes, seems to be on the verge of a significant attitude change. This shift has fueled speculation that the 29-year-old may be considering aligning himself with the faction, especially after losing the coveted NXT Championship at No Mercy 2023.

Carmelo Hayes’s recent championship loss has left him visibly frustrated, exacerbated by mounting tension with his close friend, Trick Williams. The situation has been further agitated by Bron Breakker, who appears intent on driving a wedge between the once inseparable duo.
As Carmelo’s discontent with his circumstances grows, including his friendship with Trick, a potential heel turn could be on the horizon. If he were to betray his ally, it might pave the way for him to join The Judgment Day. While Carmelo has had prior issues with Finn Balor, it’s conceivable that the stable might prioritize their collective interests over past grievances.
Recent events have only added to The Judgment Day’s notoriety. At No Mercy, Carmelo Hayes lost the NXT Championship to Ilja Dragunov in a match that left fans in awe. However, the faction secured another significant victory when Trick Williams managed to dethrone Dominik Mysterio for the North American Championship. While the WWE Universe celebrated Trick’s long-awaited title victory, their joy was short-lived.
In a shocking twist, The Judgment Day, along with the enigmatic JD McDonagh, intervened in Trick’s rematch against Dirty Dom on WWE NXT, turning the tide against Trick, who had refused help from Carmelo. The numbers game ultimately proved insurmountable, leaving Trick without championship gold.
