Update: Ringside News has an EXCLUSIVE UPDATE on WWE’s plan for Retribution. We HIGHLY suggest you read this one.
Original: Retribution showed up to close out WWE RAW this week. They took out the Mysterios, and then stood tall on the apron. Their pose-down at the end of the show seemed to signify that the stable has been established.
For weeks WWE’s Retribution stable caused chaos, but they were all much smaller than your average pro wrestler. That is because WWE hadn’t decided on the stable’s members just yet. Things were different this week.
Fans were able to peg Dominik Dijakovic and Dio Maddin as two of the Retribution members on RAW this week. Shane Thorne is a popular choice. A lot of fans have also identified Vanessa Bourne. It is unclear if Jessi Kamea is still in the group. She was previously the member with purple tips to her dark hair, but they kept the hair hidden this week. It’s incredibly possible she’s still with the faction.
Chelsea Green, Santana Garrett, and Indi Hartwell are also popular choices. There are numerous people that WWE could use in this faction, but it appears they are coming from NXT.
There is a theory going around that Ember Moon is one of the members. She is not as Moon has been quite open about her current injury status. Mia Yim is very likely since she hasn’t done much in NXT, and she’s ready for the main roster. She is also in a relationship with Keith Lee who was also just called up to the main roster. WWE likes to keep couples together if they can.
It appears that WWE landed on members of Retribution and there will be six of them. We’re not 100% clear who the other members are, but a lot of fans believe that they have figured out a majority of them. Of course, Vince McMahon can always swap them out if he wishes.
