The first option seems like the most likely choice, and that’s Dominik Dijakovic. The NXT star was essentially written off NXT television after being viciously attacked by Karrion Kross, which only intensified the issues between Kross and NXT Champion Keith Lee.
That leaves Dijakovic open for something new, and keen-eyed Gary Cassidy realized that Dijakovic had blacked out his social media. Not only did he delete old content, but Dijakovic added photos with hidden messages “we will rise” and “from the ashes,” which certainly fit the fiery actions of RETRIBUTION.
Dominik Dijakovic has shown his ability in NXT many times, but he never quite managed to turn that into championship success. It wouldn’t be surprised at all if Dijakovic turns out to be the leader of this group, looking to “TakeOver” WWE Raw in his own way.
Certainly a less likely inclusion, there’s “The Girl With the Shiniest Wizard” Tegan Nox. She scored a key win this week over Indi Hartwell on NXT, but overall Nox has struggled to carve out a spot on NXT.
She’s also seen many former friends, such as Dakota Kai and Candice LeRae, viciously turn on her and find their own forms of success. Kai is even headed to a title shot at NXT TakeOver: XXX, and she could be looking for a new way to seize an opportunity.
