Mustafa Ali welcomes those that continue to overlook and downplay RETRIBUTION.
The story of RETRIBUTION’s time in WWE is equal parts captivating and puzzling. Initially, the group debuted as a mysterious faction of nameless and faceless rebels bent on chaos. In the weeks that would follow, core members would arise and even though they would undergo name changes, it was clear that several favorites from NXT had found themselves in a permanent position on Monday Night Raw as part of this new group that began to regularly bookend WWE television in late August in early September.
After the group missed three pay-per-views in a row, Mustafa Ali would be unveiled as their leader while also revealing that he was the hacker taking over Friday Night SmackDown broadcasts earlier in the year.
With a new leader, they would also lose a member but found themselves on pay-per-view at WWE Hell in a Cell 2020. Unfortunately for RETRIBUTION, Slapjack was unsuccessful in his pay-per-view debut trying to wrestle away the United States Championship from Bobby Lashley.
The next night on Raw, RECKONING, the former Mia Yim, was “possessed” during a tag team match featuring the stable, leaving more fans perplexed by the direction of the faction. Now, Ali has taken to Twitter to say that starting tomorrow night on Rock, he will begin to “turn the ship around.”
Tomorrow on #WWERAW I turn this ship around.— Mustafa Ali / Adeel Alam (@AliWWE) November 1, 2020
But I don’t want you to change. I want you to continue to ignore the warning. I want you to continue having no faith in us.
After all, “having no faith in us” is what made us in the first place.#RETRIBUTION pic.twitter.com/IO6rdnaVUX
