WWE tag team was in line for a push before removal from television

Fans have noticed the Forgotten Sons haven’t been used on Friday Night SmackDown for the past two weeks.

This comes after people in WWE are upset with Jaxson Ryker for his praise of President Donald Trump and his 2019 comments about Black Lives Matter. Clearly, this situation had to be taken seriously and the removal of this team on television isn’t a surprise.

However, what’s interesting is that the team isn’t expected to be on the next two episodes of SmackDown either. According to a report by Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful Select, the group that consists of Ryker, Steve Cutler, and Wesley Blake, “were primed for a push within the WWE Tag Team division.”

This was the plan before the tweet by Ryker was sent out and ultimately led to him being in hot water with the roster. The media outlet noted that after talking with wrestlers in the company, it was noted that Ryker was well-liked ahead of that and very respectful.

As expected, it was also noted that Blake and Cutler distanced themselves from Ryker and also came in for a meeting with Mark Carrano, as well as other wrestlers.

The team was originally set to enter a program with New Day, which seems off the table now. The report notes that there’s no heat on Blake or Cutler, but they are catching the backlash from Ryker’s tweet.
