WWE introduced the Retribution stable which brought a few names up from NXT under new monikers. Their histories are still intact and woven into their current angle. T-Bar was Dominik Dijakovic prior to entering the main roster, and he can see how fans really are now.
T-Bar sent out out a message to fans who say that they loved Dominik Dijakovic’s work. He said that they never loved him, they just loved the matches. T-Bar made it clear that there is a big difference between the two things; because the fans never really loved him.
People sure do enjoy pretending they used to love me. You all loved my matches. You didn’t love me. There’s a difference. Trust me, I lived it. And I will never forget.
This is exactly the kind of angst-filled message that Retribution members have become known for. Mustafa Ali’s band of jaded former NXT Superstars are still doing their thing and spreading a message that will disrupt WWE’s very foundation. We’ll have to see how effective they are when everything is said and done.
