WWE is working on building up Edge’s faction, “The Judgment Day,” as a major force in the company. Thus far, the Rated R Superstar has recruited Damian Priest and Rhea Ripley as the newest members of his stable. There was originally a different direction planned, but it was scrapped when that wrestler was released by WWE.
Ringside News exclusively reported that Harland (AKA Parker Boudreaux) was hand-picked by Edge to join the group. That was the plan until Harland was let go. Now, Dave Meltzer has reported in The Wrestling Observer that the company found something about Boudreaux that they did not like.
“As it turns out, even though he did not get great recommendations from people in NXT, Parker Boudreaux aka Harland had been hand picked by Edge to be the fourth person in The Judgment Day.
Ringside News reported it and we were told that this was supposed to be a major secret and that Edge had told very few and he was one of the few who knew. They even kept it from Boudreaux, but it is accurate. The only thing we were told as to why it didn’t happen is that the company found something out about Boudreaux and made the decision based on that.”
It is not known exactly what WWE did not like about Parker Boudreaux. Any guesses at this point would be speculation. It was serious enough to pull the plug on his main roster call-up and fire him.
Time will tell what is next for The Judgment Day. Edge has teased Paige and Tommaso Ciampa in recent days. The only way to know for sure is to stay tuned to Monday Night Raw.
