The stable known as RETRIBUTION has been wreaking havoc for a number of weeks. Ever since their appearance in early August, the group has targeted many Superstars and no one appears to be safe. The question has been – Who is behind the masks of these women and men.
Some names such as Chelsea Green and Vanessa Borne have been early thoughts on the female members. This is primarily because there have been rumors of both women moving on from their days in NXT. Other names recently brought up are Mercedes Martinez and Mia Yim.
The core group of RETRIBUTION appears to be at least five people. The number, however, seems to be ever-changing. There are moments where the amount is five and other times where there seem to be more than a dozen at any given moment. For instance, at the end of RAW this week there were many people representing the RETRIBUTION faction as they interrupted and stopped the Drew McIntyre vs. Keith Lee main event.
With all of this being said, POST Wrestling is stating that their sources have told them who the five people are that form this faction. The five members of the group include:
- Mercedes Martinez
- Mia Yim
- Dominik Dijakovic
- Shane Thorne
- Dio Maddin
There were speaking roles by two of the members on tonight’s RAW. The two speaking were said to be both Martinez and Dijakovic with their voices distorted.
Martinez recently lost a cage match against Rhea Ripley on last week’s NXT. As a result, Robert Stone stated that Martinez is no longer part of the Robert Stone Brand signifying that she could be moving on from the black and gold brand as well.
As for Yim, she has not been seen on NXT programming for a few weeks. She was last defeated on the Aug. 26 episode by Shotzi Blackheart.
There has been no confirmation by WWE or any of the talents on these identities. Also, there is no word on if there will be any others being part of the stable as we see a constant change in the number of members.
