WWE Raw: The Judgement Day turns on Edge, gains new member

Welcome back to another Raw roundup, this time covering the June 6 edition of the show featuring Judgement Day’s shocking turn on Edge, Becky Lynch in a 24/7 title match and more follow-up to Cody Rhodes' injury.
Here’s a quick recap of the match results:
Considering The Judgement Day has only been a thing since April, it’s surprising to see Edge already kicked out of his own group.
However, due to Rhodes being out with an injury, Raw is in dire need of top babyfaces, and Edge is an easy choice to fill that spot while still elevating Damian Priest, Ripley and Bálor as an adversary.
It doesn’t even matter that Edge has been insulting fans of late. It shouldn’t be difficult to get them back on his side. This is a WWE Hall of Famer we're talking about here.
My only real disappointment in all of this is that Edge’s recent heel run has been good for him on TV. Ending it so soon is a bummer.
As for Bálor being the newest member, giving him his own faction is certainly an upgrade from what he was doing. I just hope the group is given the same dedication it received with Edge as the leader.
Best match: Alexa Bliss vs. Rhea Ripley vs. Liv Morgan vs. Doudrop
It was a tough choice between this and the tag team match, but the women’s Fatal Four-way had a more satisfying finish.
Ripley challenging Bianca Belair at Money in a Bank is also a solid program that will almost certainly yield entertaining results.
Especially with Rhea as a clear-cut heel now.
Here’s Brooke surprisingly pinning Lynch.
John Cena was announced as returning to Raw on June 27 to celebrate his 20-year anniversary with WWE.
Theory better mind his business.
Riddle challenged Roman Reigns to an Undisputed title match.
Lingering question: Could Cody compete at Money in the Bank?
Despite Corey Graves confirming Cody will undergo surgery this week, Rhodes still teased the possibility of competing at Money in the Bank.
I just don’t foresee this happening so soon after surgery.
The angle with Seth Rollins afterward seemed to be a write-off for now.
