WWE's RETRIBUTION stable has been a hot-button topic over the past few weeks. Putting it as politely as possible, the group hasn't been for everyone, sparking divided responses from fans and critics alike, primiarly for the stunted, corporate nature of the "chaos" RETRIBUTION purports to spread.
This reaction has apparently spread backstage.
WrestleVotes have come through with the following report suggesting the stable's presentation is being openly mocked by people within the company:-
That's not a great sign for a group compromised primarily of NXT and Performance Center athletes, with Mia Yim, Mercedes Martinez, Dominik Dijakovic, Dio Maddin, and Shane Throne comprising the core five members. This quartet was handed Raw contracts on last night's show, with the male contingent renamed T-Bar, Mace, and Slapjack.
RETRIBUTION also wrestled their first official match on last night's Raw, though their clash with The Hurt Business was rendered a disqualification. The Raw locker-room emptied to brawl with them as an underwhelming show drew to a close.
As reported earlier, RETRIBUTION are supposedly heading towards some kind of Survivor Series elimination match at the moment, with more member reveals seemingly on the way. The pay-per-view goes down on 22 November.
