During Raw Talk with Charly Caruso, the Retribution leader shared the table along with former 24/7 Champion R-Truth. While Truth was just being himself, Ali had an entirely different point to prove.

He talked about how WWE serves fans bad content week after week. Ali took a shot at the Peyton Royce-Lacey Evans segment, explaining how he didn’t get the point of it.

Instead of hearing him out., Truth pointed out the fact that the names of Retribution members like Slapjack, T-Bar, and Reckoning sounded stupid. 

Ali countered this point by telling Truth his name was not much different! The entire segment was a comic wonder which definitely made it worth the watch.

Mustafa Ali called on the rest of Retribution to silence R-Truth

Later, Ali got frustrated by Truth’s constant attacks. To make his statements clear, he called on the rest of Retribution to surround the scared Superstar. 

One by one, Slapjack, Mace, T-Bar, and Reckoning trapped R-Truth. Begging for mercy, Truth explained how he had already taken the beating for the night. 

He was referring to his match vs Bobby Lashley, in which he got turned inside out with a Spear by “The All-Mighty”. He then went on to lose his 24/7 Championship to Drew Gulak.

The fact that WWE is giving the faction such close screen time means that it isn’t going to be much of a mystery anymore. The show will now feature the faction as regular competitors rather than masked attackers.

If Mustafa Ali wanted to put a strong message forward, he probably shouldn’t have done it alongside R-Truth. The former 24/7 Champion is notorious for his jester-like role.

This time, Truth was spared from the ambush. However, he will have to tread lightly; Retribution does not hesitate in taking out another Superstar.
