Meet the new team. Nearly two months ago, the group who would become known as Retribution debuted on Monday Night Raw and started causing a lot of problems for WWE. The team has changed a bit since then, now including their own logo and almost a theme song in the form of the lights going out throughout the arena. They have become a pretty big story on the show, but now someone has taken notice.
One of the better stories over the course of the year on Monday Night Raw has been the rise of the Hurt Business. Led by MVP, the team has gone from formation to success in just a few short months, including Bobby Lashley winning the United States Title and Cedric Alexander turning on his friends to join the team last week. They are a rather powerful group and now they have some more enemies.
This week on Monday Night Raw, the Hurt Business was interrupted by a Retribution interview. Later in the night, the Hurt Business offered to be the new security that dealt with Retribution, with WWE official Adam Pearce agreeing. Retribution again interrupted the main event of Drew McIntyre vs. Keith Lee, which caused the Hurt Business to come to the ring and fight with Retribution, with McIntyre and Lee joining in, to end the show.
Here they come to save the day. Check out the end of the show:
Opinion: I can go for this, as having some people designed to stand up against Retribution is a good idea. You can only have random attacks with no one fighting back against the team for so long and we are starting to reach that point. This is as good of an idea as they have at the moment and I can always go for more of the Hurt Business. Go with what makes sense here and see what you can find that works.
What do you think of the idea? Who is in Retribution? Let us know in the comments below.
