Below are some top WWE & AEW news stories of the day:
– In the main event of this week’s RAW, World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins & AJ Styles defeated Judgment Day (Finn Balor & Damian Priest).
At first, Dominik Mysterio entered the ring in his gear, making Rollins & Styles think it will be him & Priest in the match, but it was a trick and Balor launched an attack from behind.
Rollins pinned Priest after hitting the Stomp to pick up the win for his team.
Seth had a funny moment with SmackDown Women’s Champion Rhea Ripley during the match (similar to the Shawn Michaels – Melina moment from many years ago):
