WWE broke up Retribution during the kickoff show of Fastlane and then the members disbanded. T-Bar and Mace are still together on RAW, but Reckoning and Slapjack were moved to SmackDown and vanished. They will have different names whenever they do re-appear.
According to PW Insider, WWE has officially changed Reckoning and Slapjack’s names back to Mia Yim and Shane Thorne respectively. They have not appeared yet, but the two will have much different names when they do show up again.
WWE has dropped the Retribution-era names for Mia Yim (formerly Reckoning) and Shane Thorne (Slapjack) and as now, they will be utilizing their previous ring names.
It was also noted “that could change if there’s a creative idea or direction for them.” As of this writing, no plans have been put into motion for either of them on SmackDown. They are on the blue brand and waiting for their next shot in the spotlight.
Fans might be relieved that WWE is going back to Mia Yim and Shane Thorne’s pre-Retribution names. That apparently hasn’t helped them get booked, but there is still hope of that happening.
