Announced during tonight’s WWE SmackDown broadcast, “Main Event” Jey Uso is set to face Damian Priest of The Judgment Day on Monday’s episode of WWE Raw. The match announcement comes after Uso denied the offer of membership in the group on the September 11 episode of the show, and stood alongside Sami Zayn, Kevin Owens, and Cody Rhodes against The Judgment Day over the past several weeks.
Uso joined the Raw roster earlier this month, finding himself among allies in Zayn and Rhodes, while having to win over Owens. The former Bloodline member wrestled Drew McIntyre, someone else who had a bone to pick with Uso, on the September 18 edition of Raw, with Uso coming up short due to a distraction by The Judgment Day.
After spending years in a prominent tag team alongside his brother, Jimmy, Jey broke out as a singles star over the summer, leading to a match against his cousin, Roman Reigns, at WWE SummerSlam. Jey lost that title bout due to interference from his brother, and after confronting his family and taking a few weeks ago, the former tag team champion reappeared on Raw. The rest of Jey’s family remains on WWE SmackDown. There are a number of unresolved issues there, and a feud between Jey and Jimmy seems absolutely inevitable based on what happened at SummerSlam and in the days after. For now, however, Uso seems to have his hands full dealing with The Judgment Day.
Like The Bloodline, The Judgment Day is currently dealing with some instability of its own. Leader Finn Balor seems keen on bringing his longtime ally JD McDonagh into the group, which Priest remains staunchly opposed to. Rhea Ripley and Dominik Mysterio, however, seem more focused on simply keeping the group together. With McDonagh helping out at points while seemingly accidentally costing the group at others, his true allegiances will likely become clear in the weeks or months ahead.
