A great portion of the core members of RETRIBUTION were revealed on RAW as Mia Yim, Dio Maddin, Dominik Dijakovic and Mercedes Martinez. It was announced that they’ve officially been “signed” by WWE and Dijakovic, Maddin and the individual in the group who sported a hockey mask have been given new names. Dio Maddin is now going by “MACE”, Dijakovic is “T-Bar” and the individual behind the hockey mask is “Slap Jack”.

In the main event, Maddin, Dijakovic and Slap Jack took on MVP, Bobby Lashley and Shelton Benjamin. The show ended with various members of RETRIBUTION brawling with the male RAW roster.

There was a storyline where Seth Rollins questioned if Aalyah Mysterio was actually Rey’s daughter because she checked on Murphy after Rollins attacked him. Rey Mysterio then referred to Aalyah as “naïve” and added that she does not know anything about the business. Later in the show, Murphy checked on Aalyah.

Jerry “The King” Lawler returned to commentary on RAW and joined Byron Saxton and the returning Tom Phillips. A new video package for Bianca Belair aired during the program as well.

On RAW Underground, Braun Strowman defeated Dabba-Kato. The two went face-to-face earlier in the night on The K.O. show to build anticipation for the match. Prior to their bout, NXT’s Briana Brandy conducted interviews with both Strowman and Dabba-Kato.

For the second week in a row, Lana has taken a Samoan Drop through a table from Nia Jax. Randy Orton appeared on RAW and attacked Drew McIntyre and punted Keith Lee in the head during their match. Orton laid out McIntyre again at the conclusion of RAW.
