Retribution made its in-ring debut in the main event of this week's Monday Night Raw as T-Bar, Slapjack and Mace (Dominik Dijakovic, Shane Thorne and Dio Maddin) took on The Hurt Business' Bobby Lashley, Shelton Benjamin and Cedric Alexander. Lashley looked to have the win secured when he trapped Throne in the Hurt Lock, but the referee threw out the match when Dijakovic interfered. A brawl then broke out as the unnamed members of Retribution hit the ring.
Suddenly Drew McIntyre's music hit, and the WWE Champion led the charge as the Raw locker room emptied in order to fight back against the masked attackers.
