Rhea Ripley Helps Edge Defeat AJ Styles At WWE WrestleMania Backlash, Joins Judgement Day

Rhea Ripley aligns with Edge and Damian Priest at WrestleMania Backlash

Edge's WWE faction has a new member. 

The WWE Hall Of Famer went one-on-one with AJ Styles at WrestleMania Backlash and while Damian Priest was banned from ringside to prevent a repeat of WrestleMania 38, this didn't stop interference from handing Edge the victory.

After Priest entered the arena and stood in the aisleway, the former United States Champion was attacked from behind by Finn Balor, with both men brawling in the ring and then at ringside.

Their brawl ultimately distracted the referee and provided the opening for a hooded figure to pull AJ Styles from the top rope. Edge then locked in the Crossface before he applied a Choke which forced The Phenomenal One to pass out, giving the former Rated-R Superstar his second win over Styles. 

The hooded figure then entered the squared circle and revealed themselves to be Rhea Ripley. The former Raw Women's Champion and Edge proceeded to celebrate inside the squared circle, confirming her addition to Judgement Day. 

Rumours of Ripley's pitched involvement in Edge's faction first emerged after WrestleMania 38. Ripley then turned heel a couple of weeks later on Monday Night Raw, attacking her tag team partner Liv Morgan.
