It might be a little while. The big story coming out of last week’s Monday Night Raw was Retribution being moved up to a new level. After nearly two months of carnage and destruction, the team finally received some direction as they unmasked, were given names and had their first official match. It was a big night for them, even if it was not the most well received. Now though, things might be getting even worse.
The other big story coming out of WWE last week was a Coronavirus outbreak that was causing a lot of problems throughout the locker room. The outbreaks tarted in NXT and seems to have spread up to the main roster. This is the kind of thing that you have to take seriously, no matter what is going on with a storyline. I think you can see where this is going to go.
According to Ryan Satin, all five main members of Retribution are being forced to self quarantine for two weeks after coming into contact with someone who has tested positive for the Coronavirus. The five members have all tested negative but they will not be appearing on at least the next two editions of Monday Night Raw. It is not clear when their self quarantining began.
Regarding RETRIBUTION not being cleared to compete at the moment, sources tell me all 5 members tested negative for COVID-19. However, the group's members each have to quarantine themselves for two weeks because they came into proximity with someone who tested positive.

Well that cuts things off a bit. Check out what Retribution did last week:
Opinion: What matters most here is that the team seems to be healthy. There is nothing wrong with being over cautious and that is what WWE seems to be doing here. The team is a big part of Monday Night Raw but there are more important things to deal with, such as keeping everyone else healthy. Hopefully things get better when they get back, but that first week was not exactly the best start for everything.
What did you think of Retribution’s first big week? Where do they go from here? Let us know in the comments below.
