The latest episode of Monday Night Raw saw Finn Balor and JD McDonagh compete in a fatal four-way tag team match to crown the number one contenders for the World Tag Team Championship. The Judgment Day came out on top, but only after some help from Carlito. As such, Rhea Ripley sent a short message to the 45-year-old after the match.

The Eradicator, via her X account, acknowledged the help from the wrestling veteran. Rhea Ripley also used a clapping emoji, seeming to be impressed by the Puerto Rican. During the match, Pete Dunne was laying a beatdown on McDonagh on top of the announce table. Amid the chaos, Carlito made a surprise entrance to save the Irish wrestler. 

Further, the former LWO member delivered a backstabber to Dunne on the announce table. McDonagh took advantage of the situation and rolled him into the ring. The Judgment Day was able to capitalize as Finn Balor pinned the British wrestler after a Coup De Grace.

The former United States Champion tried to get help from the faction last week in his fight against the LWO. Damian Priest quickly shut him down, saying that he did not trust him. However, his actions on the latest episode of Raw may have caused the World Heavyweight Champion to reconsider.

After the match, Balor, McDonagh, and Carlito walked up to Damian Priest and Dominik Mysterio in a backstage segment. Although the Irishmen and the former North American Champion seemed excited to see the wrestling veteran, the World Heavyweight Champion maintained a rigid look. The Latino took the hint and started walking away after saying that he was not wanted there.

However, Priest stopped him and told him that what happened in the match was ‘cool’, referring to his iconic catchphrase. He brought up the topic of Rey Mysterio and assured the former LWO member that the boys would have his back.

However, the 41-year-old wanted to make sure that the former Intercontinental Champion could handle his business. Before walking away, Priest warned him that the faction did not roll with cowards. He also asked him to not let them down.
