RETRIBUTION kept working from quarantine, with a special message for anyone glad they were exposed to COVID

We’ll have to wait until Oct. 12 to see if T-Bar, Mace, Slapjack, Reckoning, and Retaliation can rehabilitate the RETRIBUTION gimmick on television. That’s because the performers are quarantining after being exposed to someone who tested positive for COVID-19.

WWE kept the group in our minds last night (Sept. 28) on Raw with a video package and some of the flickering lights shenanigans the anarchist faction is known for. The wrestlers themselves were on social media, doing more of what has caused some fans to give RETRIBUTION more leeway...

That wasn’t all, though. T-Bar stepped outside of kayfabe a bit to deliver a message to the haters, and specifically anyone who might celebrate their being off television despite the circumstances surrounding it:

He also questioned the intelligence of anyone who tried to tie that tweet into his response to Chris Jericho from the weekend...

Is this stuff helping RETRIBUTION in the long run? I honestly don’t know. But as with everything else, it’s a good effort from the players to make the most of what the folks pulling the strings are giving them.
