WWE Considering Addition To The Judgment Day
The Judgment Day could be adding a fifth member to the group, according to a new rumor following the WWE Draft.
Now that the WWE Draft is behind, we know that The Judgment Day will remain as a four-person unit on the Raw brand, which is where they have been for the last year.
Rhea Ripley is the Smackdown Women’s Champion that was the first pick for Raw among the available pool of talent this past Monday. The Judgment Day trio of Finn Balor, Damian Priest & Dominik Mysterio were the seventh pick in Monday’s draft.
As for what happens with Ripley’s Smackdown Women’s Title, there might be a belt swap with Bianca Belair, who is the Raw Women’s Champion that was drafted back to Smackdown. There has been no official announcement from WWE about those tiles.
According to the Boozer Rasslin account which has been accurate with some stories of late, The Judgment Day might be adding JD McDonagh to the group.
JD for JD is being discussed heavily. Not yet approved

JD McDonagh was drafted to the Raw brand in the WWE Draft. McDonagh had his NXT farewell match this past Tuesday on NXT when he had a phenomenal match with Dragon Lee, which McDonagh won.
There is a lot of history with McDonagh and Finn Balor, who trained McDonagh to be a wrestler in 2006. McDonagh wrestled as Jordan Devlin for many years until the summer of 2022 when WWE changed his name to JD McDonagh.
As always with something like this, it’s just a rumor for now. There are always rumors about WWE doing certain things and sometimes it comes to fruition while other times it doesn’t because plans change. That’s just how the wrestling business.
The Judgment Day will be busy at Backlash this Saturday, May 6th when Priest faces Bad Bunny in a San Juan Street Fight while Ripley defends her Smackdown Women’s Title against Zelina Vega.
