Everything looked to finally be falling in to place for RETRIBUTION a few weeks ago.
Managing to gain some semblance of popularity with their social media accounts, the big bad band of ambushing arsonists were given an uplifting story swerve when Mustafa Ali was revealed to be the leader of the group of masked marauders, turning on The Hurt Business to support his fellow under-utilised brethren.
That welcome high has unfortunately been deflated since then, with RETRIBUTION struggling once more.
Having lost all of their official matches, been made to look weak by The Hurt Business, and being absolutely manhandled by the one-man wrecking machine that is The Fiend, it's hard to see the light at the end of the collapsing tunnel for RETRIBUTION.
Are the group too far gone, or is there a glimmer of hope left for WWE's creative to turn this storyline around and reap some benefit from the months of effort put into the angle? Or, as seems more likely, are the group doomed to further burials? Perhaps even literally at the hands of The Undertaker, finally wiping the group off of our screens at his 30th-anniversary celebration?
