WWE RAW Results (5/9) Hartford, CT – We are live from the XL Center in Hartford, CT, as RK-Bro make its way to the ring. Randy Orton welcomes everyone to Raw. He says unfortunately, last night, his partner and him, even though they gave everything, they lost the battle to the Bloodline. Before this is all said and done, we will win the war. It was the Usos idea for the match to be a title unification match but that didn’t happen. A few weeks ago, the Big Dog himself, Roman Reigns, tore up that contract because he knows his cousins cannot hold a candle to them. We want the Smackdown Tag Titles. We want to unify the tag titles and become the unified tag team champions.
Riddle says since it looks like Roman has to make all of the Usos decisions, they will go to Smackdown and go to Roman to demand that tag title match. If he says no, it just goes to show that the tribal chief has no confidence in his cousins. He will still show up with his scooter and Randy will… show up.
The Street Profits interrupt and make their way to the stage.
Montez says it was a tough loss last night. Dawkins says the Bloodline are tough. Like we showed you a few weeks ago, they aren’t the ones to be worried about, we are. Ford says he heard that they have unfinished business with the Bloodline, but tonight, the three most important words… we got next. We will be the ones to unify the tag titles. Dawkins says you have been talking smack and haven’t mentioned our names. It will be you versus us for those titles. Ford says when the smoke and the fog clears, we want not just the Raw tag team titles, we want the smoke.
Riddle says RK-Bro 4:20 because we just smoked your asses. Randy says they will do it with the three most dangerous letters in sports entertainment, RK-Bro.
We go to commercial.

In the Arena:
We are back and Judgment Day is in the ring.
Edge says they formed Judgment Day because they were sick of being sheep like you. It got me a Hall of Fame ring? Big deal because I am bigger than the Hall of Fame. You can point to any part of my body and it has undergone surgery but did you care? You sit there and hide with your anger and resentment and go home and post your stupid and asinine comments. You hate it because it is true. We hold the mirror up to each and every one of you. We can look at any mirror we want and we love what we see. AJ Styles and you morons in Hartford don’t understand that nothing and no one can touch us.
Priest says the truth hurts. Individually, Edge and I could destroy each and every one of your favorites. We have become more together. If you thought that was bad or dangerous. Imagine adding an instrument of brutality. Priest tells everyone to rise for the newest member of Judgment Day, Rhea Ripley.
Rhea says joining Judgment Day was the easiest decision of her life. Edge, Damian, I saw the two of you change for the better and I wanted that. I am done signing autographs at the airport for the little kids running up to me who want to be me. The next day, I see those autographs being sold on E-Bay. I am done being used. That is why I joined. Speaking of being used, I have some unfinished business to attend. Liv Morgan. You no longer ride my coattails. I will give you a reason why when I destroy you.
Edge says unrealized potential is all that is about. They were ships without a rudder. I am their rudder and direction. They have taken things into their own hands. A few weeks ago, I pulled Rhea aside in my opinion that Liv was holding her down. I am the reason your favorite tag team split up. You’re welcome. I saw wasted domination and a juggernaut willing to live in the slow lane instead of running everything over. My message, my movement is not done. We aren’t finished yet and we are looking for more.
