Last night on RAW, the chaotic group known as Retribution revealed themselves. They let the WWE Universe know that they were going to be the judge, jury and executioner of the company, and blamed the fans for helping ruin the company. It was also announced that the five members had been signed to RAW contracts. We would later see them compete in a six man tag match against The Hurt Business in the main event. Members T-Bar, Slapjack and Mace would get DQ’ed however. The names of the other two members were not revealed at this time. However, as we previously reported at TRR Dominik Dijakovic, Dio Maddin, Shane Thorne, Mia Yim and Mercedes Martinez are under the masks. Retribution is certainly something different on the show however it’s been met with a mixed reaction so far from fans and apparently backstage as well.
We’ve learned at TRR that some were reportedly not able to contain themselves during the big reveal on RAW and wound up laughing backstage. There was talk about how the masks looked cheap and how WWE was already ruining the angle. Other talent also apparently felt bad for the members having to be part of this and thought the names were ridiculous. Let’s hope Vince didn’t hear those comments. As we’ve noted before Retribution is Vince McMahon’s idea and he‘s making things up as he goes. We’ll have to see what the company has planned next for the group, but a survivor series match against the RAW stars seems like it’s in the cards down the line.
