RETRIBUTION’s T-BAR has teased a major change of character, sharing a photo of his mask with the word “Death” via Twitter.
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 – barbing with Bryan Alvarez, AEW, and even recently with Sammy Guevara. However, a one-word tweet today has left the WWE Universe speculating as to whether his “death” tweet is about a potential unmasking, his character as a whole, or perhaps a red herring.

T-BAR was initially unveiled as the leader – or at least spokesperson – of RETRIBUTION upon their initial unveiling, 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.
