Ahead of his tag team match against Drew McIntyre and Braun Strowman, former RETRIBUTION member T-Bar tried to turn up the intensity a notch. He and McIntyre got into a Twitter argument ahead of Monday Night RAW.

T-BAR (whose real name is Dominik Dijakovic) won against the duo with the fellow former Retribution member Mace. T-Bar called out Strowman and McIntyre in a recent Tweet. He called them “Thomas the Tank Engine and 3MB” respectively.

“Here’s a hard dose of reality. I’m 6’8 280 and so is he,” He wrote. “We are world-class athletes. We have been a TEAM and BROTHERS for years. You two goofs met last week during the commercial break. This Monday we take out Thomas the Tank Engine and 3MB for good.”

Drew McIntyre, alongside Heath Slater and Jinder Mahal, was part of a trio of wrestlers called 3MB during his first stint in WWE. Following this stint, McIntyre left WWE and came back stronger a few years later.

Following the derogatory comments, McIntyre took it upon himself to teach T-Bar a lesson. He asked the former RETRIBUTION members to prove themselves inside the ring before talking on Twitter.

“You’ve had more name changes than titles,” McIntyre started. “You were just another guy on the indies when I was the guy. You won nothing in NXT, and I was the Champ, and you’ve proved nothing since. Your mate’s highest accolade is commentating on my matches. Prove yourself in-ring. Not on Twitter.”

McIntyre already has a match scheduled for the upcoming Backlash pay-per-view. He would be facing WWE Champion Bobby Lashley for the title following their match at WrestleMania 37.

Meanwhile, T-Bar and Mace recently turned heel on their ‘leader’ Mustafa Ali. In the match last week, they were unmasked as well. Despite announcing themselves as a tag team, Mace and T-Bar are yet to have any match on the upcoming PPV.

There have been certain rumors that suggest the two wrestlers will join the Hurt Business. Following the departure of Cedric Alexander and Shelton Benjamin, the heel faction has become a two-man show with MVP and Lashley.

What do you think the future (and WWE creative team) holds for T-Bar and Mace? Will they indeed join the Hurt Business? Let us know in the comments below.
