Ex-WWE writer addresses issues with Retribution
Submitted by Aaron T-Bar Rift on 10/10/2020 at 12:55 PM

Former WWE writer Andrew Goldstein did an interview MLW Radio Network’s Outside Interference With Kenny Herzog and discussed the Retribution and Hurt Business factions on WWE RAW:

“If you’re going to name an infiltrating group Retribution, you need to have a thesis in your promos. There needs to be some sort of grievance that you’re fighting against, and they’ve yet to name a grievance. That’s really where it’s failed. You could point to the masks and outfits and the kind of campiness of it, but to me there’s no mission statement. If Retribution came out and it was headed by one of the wrestlers who had just been released six months ago, Retribution makes sense and I’m into it. There’s just no reason for me to care because I don’t know what they’re fighting against. They just say these nebulous, nonspecific terrorizing things.”

“Hurt Business probably was produced by somebody who was overseeing the middle of the car and it’s become the main event. Look at the guys in it. They’re all veterans. Those are not guys who are going to be walked all over creatively. Those are guys who have the confidence at this point in their career to be able to walk into Vince’s office, sit down with them and be like, ‘That’s not really something I would say.’ And that’s why MVP’s promos have been so good.”
