After the retirement of Vince McMahon from WWE. Triple H was named head of talent relations and has fared well bringing back Karrion Kross and a lot more character changes are expected under the leadership of the game. The recent smackdown saw a huge rise in viewership and tv ratings. There are speculations that a WWE star reportedly considered for character changes under Triple H.
In the summer of 2020, Dominik Dijakovic, Dio Madden, Mia Yim, and Shane Thorne made their television debuts on Raw and SmackDown as the stable Retribution, led by Mustafa Ali.
Since that time, Djiakovic has gone by the moniker T-Bar, while Madden, Yim, and Thorne previously went by the names Mace, Reckoning, and Slapjack until they transitioned to other promos or gimmicks.
After Mia Yim and Shane Thorne were freed and retribution failed, Mace, Mustafa Ali, and T-Bar set about pursuing their own interests. On the “Raw” mid card, Ali is now a babyface, and Mace, along with Mansoor, Max, and Maxime Dupri, is now a member of the Maximum Male Models on “SmackDown.”
T-Bar, however, seems to have been sidelined by WWE as a staple on “Main Event,” despite being a member of the official Monday Night “Raw” roster. Despite the fact that this has been going on for a time, things could soon change.
According to a recent report from “PW Insider,” Triple H’s creative direction may be giving T-Bar and his character a makeover soon. The audience has responded favorably to T-Bar in his main event battles over the previous few weeks, including the company’s significant return to Madison Square Garden last month.
Uncertainty surrounds T-repacking, Bar’s but given what Triple H did to Karrion Kross on “SmackDown,” Dominik Dijakovic from his “NXT” persona might make an appearance. Dijakovic was acting as Triple H’s creative persona on “NXT.”
He never held a championship there, but in 2020 he was scheduled to face Keith Lee in high-profile championship match during their friendly rivalry.
In the 2019 Men’s War Games match, Dijakovic, Keith Lee, and Tommaso Ciampa joined forces with former “NXT” Champion Kevin Owens to defeat The Undisputed Era in a special return match to “NXT.”
