WWE Moves Another Raw Wrestler To SmackDown

WWE has moved Slapjack from Raw to SmackDown.

This is according to POST Wrestling's John Pollock, who discovered Slapjack's move while confirming Reckoning/Mia Yim's switch from Mondays to Fridays a few days ago.

Like Reckoning, Slapjack has not appeared on WWE screens since their RETRIBUTION stable imploded at Fastlane 2021 in March. Their leader, Mustafa Ali, failed to defeat United States Champion Riddle on the Kickoff Show. Months of tension then boiled over as Reckoning and Slapjack walked away while T-Bar and Mace laid Ali out, disbanding the group.


Mace, T-Bar, and Ali have continued as Raw regulars since then, in different roles. This week's show saw Mace and T-Bar unmasked as part of their ongoing storyline with Drew McIntyre, which now includes Braun Strowman as well.

There's currently no word on how, exactly, WWE plans on repackaging the former RETRIBUTION wrestlers, though the unmasking angles suggests we won't have to wait long to find out.


Slapjack has been with WWE since he and long-time tag team partner Nick Miller/Mikey Nicholls were signed in March 2016. He has previously wrestled as Shane Thorne and was called up to the main roster alongside Brendan Vink in March 2020.
