WWE’s RETRIBUTION has endured a rocky life on Raw over the past few months, and Reckoning suffered another setback this week.
The superstar was revealed to be former NXT wrestler Mia Yim – which was an open secret amongst fans – during her match with Dana Brooke on Monday Night Raw, and it’s safe to say things didn’t go to plan.
Reckoning was facing off with her foe after taking Brooke out last month and ensuring she couldn’t compete at Survivor Series.
The blonde bombshell was looking for revenge last night as she took on the RETRIBUTION star, who became a bit less threatening when her mask fell off early in the bout.
Although commentary still referred to her as Reckoning, viewers could clearly see Mia Yim in the ring.
The identity of RETRIBUTION has been referenced on television and social media, but this was the first time one of the members has been unmasked on air.
Mustafa Ali came out to try and distract Brooke – who defiantly slapped him earlier in the night – but it wasn’t to enough to stop his teammate losing the bout.
Afterwards, he berated her and insisted ‘there is no failure in RETRIBUTION’, which isn’t strictly true after the faction lost to Hurt Business in the past.
Raw was a mixed bag for the group, as Slapjack – formerly Shane Thorne – was able to overcome Ricochet when Dana appeared and got in Ali’s face.
However, despite some highs – including recently taking over the official WWE Twitter account and giving their characters more depth than fans had seen in months – the faction has been unable to build momentum.
It’s unclear where the group will go from here, and what consequences there will be for Reckoning’s loss, especially with Brooke appearing largely as enhancement talent on WWE TV.
