For The Judgment Day, WWE RAW was quite a show. Two of the four stars took part in events, while the other two dominated their opponents. Without a doubt, it was a good night for the stable.
Kevin Owens, on the other hand, did not have a good night. While Sami Zayn and Dominik Mysterio were having a fun fight in the ring, he was brutally attacked backstage. The Prizefighter was hurt by Damian Priest, Rhea Ripley, and maybe even Finn Balor.
It was first reported by WRKD, and then Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful Select confirmed that Kevin has a real injury that hasn’t been made public. It’s not clear how bad the problem is, but it was bad enough for him to miss this show.
Sami Zayn will need a new partner if Owens’ injury is bad enough to keep him out of the ring for the next few weeks or, worse, for the next few months. While Kevin gets better, this article will examine four potential stars who might collaborate with The Underdog From the Underground.

After Kevin Owens got hurt, here are four people who could take his place.
4. It’s likely that Wes Lee wants to get even on The Judgment Day.
Wes Lee is one of the best wrestlers in WWE. In MSK, he did well as part of a tag team with Nash Carter. Lee went on to win the NXT North American Championship after his tag team won gold.
The talented star has held the title of NXT North American Champion longer than anyone else in WWE history. He lost the belt to Dominik Mysterio, which was a shame. The rest of The Judgment Day had a lot to do with that, of course.
Since the stable lied to help Dirty Dom win gold, Wes will probably try to get his own back. He could get some payback if Lee sided with Sami Zayn and helped them fight off the scary group. Plus, being on RAW would only help him become better known.
3. On WWE RAW, Apollo Crews stood up to Judgment Day.
Apollo Crews is a WWE Superstar who doesn’t get nearly enough attention. Even though he didn’t win gold on NXT, he left a big mark on the brand. On the main lineup, he has been the United States Champion and the Intercontinental Champion.

When The Judgment Day walked by Crews on WWE RAW, he felt like they were being rude. Apollo stood up to Damian Priest, while Crews’ real-life friend Akira Tozawa ran away from Rhea Ripley right away. Later in the same show, they fought each other.
Even though Apollo lost to Priest in the end, he fought hard against Senor Money in the Bank. He had guts that most of the team didn’t have. He and Sami could work together to fight other enemies, including Judgment Day, at least until Kevin is back on the scene.
#2: Seth Rollins has supported Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn in the past.
Seth Rollins is one of the best people who ever lived. He has won the WWE Championship more than once, and he is currently the World Heavyweight Champion. He has also held the Intercontinental Title, the RAW Tag Team Titles, and the NXT Championship, among many others.

The Visionary doesn’t like The Judgment Day for his own reasons. He and Finn Balor have been fighting for weeks. The two are going to fight at WWE SummerSlam, but the group beat Rollins up badly on RAW before they could do so.
Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, and Seth Rollins have been working together lately, so it would make sense for Seth to help Sami when Owens isn’t around.
Since The Underdog From The Underground tried to help Seth fight off the scary four as RAW was ending, it would make sense for The Visionary to have his back going forward as well.
#1: Johnny Gargano should be back on TV right away
It could be said that Johnny Gargano was the face of WWE NXT. He had the NXT Championship, the Tag Team Championship, and the North American Championship. Before the Premium Live Events were renamed, Gargano was also the main attraction at many NXT TakeOver events.
Johnny Wrestling has been in fights with some of the members of The Judgment Day in the past, but that’s not why he was chosen for this job. Instead, WWE hasn’t used Johnny much in months, which has made many fans very upset.
The easiest option for the former NXT Champion to return to the action could be to hook up with Sami Zayn to avert Judgment Day. He also has a long past with Kevin Owens, so he might stay with the talented pair even after The Prizefighter comes back. No matter what, he should be back on TV.
