Retribution Member Names Trademarked
The highly anticipated debut of WWE’s newest stable Retribution occurred this past week during Monday Night RAW. The five main members of the group are former NXT talent, now officially working under different personas on the main roster.
WWE has filed trademarks for members of the stable, possibly revealing the two remaining names, which were not mentioned during this week’s broadcast of Monday Night RAW.
On 9/21 WWE filed five trademarks with the United States Patent and Trademark Office for the following names.
This past week’s edition of RAW revealed T-Bar as the former Dominick Dijakovic, MACE as the former Dio Maddin, and Slapjack as the former Shane Throne.
It would appear Mia Yim and Mercedez Martinez will be named Retaliation and Reckoning based on the latest trademark filings. We’re not sure which talent will get which name.
Each trademark application was filed under entertainment services, used by a professional wrestler.
