T-BAR Reveals Wholesome ‘Meaning’ Of His Name


RETRIBUTION star T-BAR has taken to Twitter to reveal what two of the letters of his name stand for.

T-BAR has initiated that he stands for Trans Rights and supports Black Lives Matter by posting two tweets “revealing” the meaning of the letters “T” and “B” in his name.

“The T in T-BAR stands for Trans Rights.”

“And the B in T-BAR stands for Black Lives Matter.”

T-BAR – who was previously known as Dominik Dijakovic in NXT before a move to RAW saw him shave his head, paint his face and don a Bane-esque mask – has been very vocal on Twitter after being initially unveiled as the leader – or at least spokesperson – of RETRIBUTION when the army of hooded individuals became five uniquely masked characters standing in the middle of the ring on RAW.


After debuting in August on RAW, attacking the Performance Center, the group would take a chainsaw to the ropes on SmackDown. In September, T-BAR and fellow NXT stars wrestlers Dio Maddin, Shane Thorne, Mia Yim and Mercedes Martinez, who would later be removed from the group, would reveal their new identities before T-BAR, MACE, and SLAPJACK made their in-ring debut against The Hurt Business. In October, Mustafa Ali was revealed as the leader of the faction, but they would since lose another match against The Hurt Business before The Fiend ran through RETRIBUTION after the match.

The losing streak of RETRIBUTION came to an end ahead of Survivor Series when they defeated Keith Lee, Braun Strowman, Sheamus and Riddle. Ever since, the faction have targeted Ricochet and tried to add him as a member before turning their attention to The New Day.
