The wrestling world is abuzz with the latest announcement from WWE. In a recent episode of Monday Night Raw, the WWE universe was treated to a thrilling revelation: Cody Rhodes and his opponent for the upcoming WWE Crown Jewel 2023 event has been confirmed.

The episode began with an appearance from Judgment Day members, initially Damian Priest and Finn Balor. However, the atmosphere took a sudden turn when Cody Rhodes interrupted them, making a grand entrance in the middle of their speech. The tension was palpable as a verbal duel ensued between Cody and the members of Judgment Day.

Cody took a moment to point out Rhea as the ‘leader’ of Judgment Day, suggesting that she might also be playing a dominant role in Priest’s life.

Priest, not one to back down, retorted by questioning the authenticity of Cody’s ‘story’, hinting at possible past failures.

The verbal exchange reached its climax when both Damian Priest and Cody Rhodes agreed to face each other in a one-on-one match at the Crown Jewel event on November 4th.

But the drama didn’t end there. Soon after their confrontation, other members of Judgment Day, including the aspiring member JD McDonagh, made their presence felt. Before anyone knew it, Cody found himself outnumbered and in a precarious situation.

In a shocking turn of events, even the intervention of Jey Uso, who tried to rescue Cody by targeting Dominik Mysterio, couldn’t prevent the onslaught.

Cody’s ankle bore the brunt of the attack as Priest and McDonagh teamed up to trap and injure it using steel chairs and steps.
