More details have been revealed about RETRIBUTION over the past month. The group's primary members revealed themselves on a recent episode of Monday Night Raw and announced they had signed WWE contracts. The group is composed of former NXT Superstars T-Bar (Dominik Dijakovic), Mace (Dio Maddin), Slapjack (Shane Thorne), Reckoning (Mia Yim) and Mercedes Martinez, who is expected to be named Retaliation. Mustafa Ali was later revealed as RETRIBUTION's leader, which could tie into the SmackDown hacker gimmick from earlier this year.
Martinez is yet to be officially named Retaliation, though, and there has been speculation in recent days that she is already finished with the faction. People have pointed out that Martinez is yet to create a Retaliation Twitter account, unlike her other stablemates, and Mustafa Ali did not include Mercedes in a graphic on Wednesday showing why each member joined RETRIBUTION. T-Bar also only follows four members of RETRIBUTION on Twitter, with Martinez being the odd Superstar out.
If Martinez is still part of the group remains to be seen, but a possible rumour killer was published last night. Ryan Satin of FOX Sports revealed the Superstar pools for the upcoming WWE Draft and a sixth member of RETRIBUTION named Retaliation was listed alongside the other five Superstars. Another wrestler may have been given the Retaliation name over the past couple of weeks, but the new identity was initially earmarked for Martinez.
