This week’s episode of Monday Night RAW started with Retribution finally revealing they ”signed” with WWE. Four out of five members in the ring had their names revealed. As reported earlier, there was a lot of laughter backstage following their reveal.
Fightful spoke to several WWE Superstars who “echoed the critical and immediate sentiments that were uncorked on the group and more specifically, WWE’s creative process.”
One Superstar revealed that he ”felt bad” for Mia Yim and Mercedes Martinez as “they’ve worked so long and are facing a battle to not make this look as dumb as it is.”
On the topic of RAW’s extra content, a Smackdown Superstar had this to say: “I think they load up Raw with that stuff because it’s a longer show, but we weren’t told why Retribution was off Smackdown.”
It was also noted that to “absolutely everyone” the new names for the stable “were ridiculous.” Another Superstar also gave his opinion on the names, saying: “It sounds like something out of a bad movie or game, but I’m not sure Vince plays games or watches movies anymore.”
It was also reported that the faction will be competing at Survivor Series.
