Edge's "Judgment Day" stable is being pushed as a top act on Monday Night Raw with the goal of enhancing Edge's character while also building up younger stars.

Damian Priest officially joined the group a few weeks ago and then Rhea Ripley joined after turning heel on Liv Morgan. There were plans to add at least one more person to the group and Tommaso Ciampa's name was reportedly pitched.

Ringside News reported today that there was another person pitched for the group but he was fired before they could move forward with those plans. The report noted that Edge had pitched for Harland (Parker Boudreaux) to be in the group and this idea was being pushed until the decision was made to release him. It was added that it is still "a big mystery to everyone in WWE" why Harland was let go from his contract. Harland had been touted internally as someone who could become the next Brock Lesnar but things never panned out that way for him in NXT.

WWE apparently knew ahead of time that Harland's days were numbered because he was removed from being part of Joe Gacy's act a couple of weeks before the recent mass releases. A tenured member of the WWE creative team reportedly added that during the writing process for Edge's segments, they were told that the Harland situation "is something that Vince and Bruce are not talking about with us."

Presumably, Harland would have played a role similar to Omos when he was with AJ Styles. Harland could have played an enforcer role with limited in-ring action until they felt that he was improving enough to wrestle on a regular basis. There's no word on what the future holds for Boudreaux in wrestling or if he plans on continuing in the business.
