Time enough at last. One of the most frustrating things to see in wrestling is guilt by association. Often times a member of a tag team can do or say something problematic and get in trouble, which can sink not only their career but also their partner’s as well. That was the case earlier this year, but now it seems that the remainder of the team could be making a comeback.
Earlier this year, Jaxson Ryker of the Forgotten Sons made some controversial comments at a bad time regarding President Trump and actions taken by police officers. The comments caused some tension in the WWE locker room and as a result, the entire trio was pulled off of television. Steve Cutler and Wesley Blake have been absent as well, but that might be changing soon.
According to Fightful Select, WWE has been coming up with ideas to bring the Forgotten Sons back to television. It is not clear if the team will be under a new gimmick or if Ryker will be returning as well. Edge, a member of the WWE creative team, has been giving the team advice and has been suggesting ideas to bring them back. There is no word on when the team will return.
The team had something. Check out what they did before they left:
Opinion: I know the team might not have been the most popular in the world but at the same time, the two of them who didn’t say anything shouldn’t have been in trouble as well. I’m not sure why Ryker would need to be brought back at all, but if Vince McMahon wants him back then he is going to be there no matter what. Either tag division could use the Forgotten Sons at the moment, but they don’t need the third man around.
What do you expect from the Forgotten Sons? Will Ryker be with them? Let us know in the comments below.
