Report: RETRIBUTION's Unveiling On WWE Raw Met With Laughter Backstage
A rough reception for T-Bar, Mace and Slapjack...
Concrete details about RETRIBUTION were finally revealed on last night's edition of Monday Night Raw. To open the episode, most of the group finally showed their faces as they made their way to the ring in masks inspired by Bane and Mad Max. The five members of the group had previously been revealed as Dominik Dijakovic, Dio Maddin, Shane Thorne, Mia Yim and Mercedes Martinez by John Pollock of POST Wrestling, but the three men have received a name change and they will now go by T-Bar (Dijakovic), Mace (Maddin) and Slapjack (Thorne).
The group's unveiling was met with derision and condemnation from fans and the reception backstage doesn't seem to have been much better. WrestleVotes reported the presentation of RETRIBUTION was met with laughter backstage and one source believes their masks and names will make it "impossible" for the stable to get over.
WrestleVotes tweeted: "Just talked to a source who was in the building last night... said the presentation of Retribution was a major topic of discussion, met w/ LAUGHTER at times backstage. Direct quote: 'The masks & names are already making the road for these guys impossible to climb.'"
