• SPOILER: 2 Wrestlers Behind RETRIBUTION’s First Promo Revealed
After causing destruction on RAW and SmackDown over the past month, RETRIBUTION finally cut their first promo on this week’s episode of RAW.
The faction interrupted The Riott Squad vs. Nia Jax Handicap Match to cut the promo backstage.
You can listen to the pitched down version of the promo below:
Two of the wrestlers behind this promo are believed to be NXT’s Dominik Dijakovic and Mercedes Martinez.
Interestingly, Dijakovic was written off TV after suffering a kayfabe injury caused at the hands of former NXT Champion, Karrion Kross, back in July.
On the other hand, Martinez is set to face Rhea Ripley in a Steel Cage match on this week’s NXT, which is seen as a way to send off NXT talents to the main roster.
