That’s a little better. Tag teams have been a part of wrestling for a long time now and that will be the case for the foreseeable future. However, some promotions present them in a better way than others and WWE does not have the best history with them. The company rather enjoys splitting teams up, and that seems to be the case again, albeit for a rather different reason.
Earlier this year, the Forgotten Sons were called up to SmackDown and immediately made an impact. The team got involved with the New Day soon after they debuted and seemed ready to be moved on to something bigger in a hurry. However, that did not wind up happening though as Jaxson Ryker made some controversial statements, resulting in the team being pulled from television. The other members, Steve Cutler and Wesley Blake, have been away as well, but that might be changing soon.
According to Fightful.com, WWE has added Cutler and Blake back to their internal roster while Ryker has been left off. This would mean that the two of them could be returning to TV, while Ryker would be excluded. At the moment there is no word on when the team could be returning to television. The Forgotten Son’s last match took place at Money In The Bank on May 10.
You might not remember them. Check out the Forgotten Sons in action:
Opinion: This is some good news for Cutler and Blake, as they were only punished because they were teammates with someone else. It was Ryker making the comments and that is why the team has been taken off of television. I’m not sure what they are going to do when they get back, but the two of them should at least be given a chance to get over without Ryker’s mistake dragging them down.
What do you think of the team? How should they be presented when they get back? Let us know in the comments below.
