Truth asked Ali what Batman ever did to Retribution for them to be wearing Bane masks. This is something the fans have noticed from the beginning. Ali retorted, “You’re gonna make fun of their names? That’s real funny coming from a guy named R-Truth.”

He continued, “Let me tell you why the members of RETRIBUTION look the way they look and have the names they have. Imagine being judged by your name. Imagine being mocked because of how you look. Now, imagine a guy named Mustafa Ali that gave the members of RETRIBUTION names and masks so that they can feel what he feels. So that they, too, can be judged by their names and how they look. It’s a crazy concept, isn’t it?”

Over the past few months, wrestling fans made fun of the names given to RETRIBUTION members Dominik Dijakovic (T-BAR), Shane Thorne (Slapjack), Dio Maddin (Mace), and Mia Yim (Reckoning). Mustafa Ali proceeded to say every member of Retribution has its own unique name and meaning.

Charly Caruso asked Ali to explain what “Slapjack” and “T-BAR” meant; Ali asked his stable members to join the show. The members of RETRIBUTION interrupted Raw Talk, and the show went off the air.
