The Forgotten Sons Make A Shocking Return on WWE SmackDown

Published 12/04/2020, 11:07 PM EST


The tag team division of WWE SmackDown does not have a lot of depth to it. However, that’s not because of the draft, as even before, teams looked limited on the blue brand. It was in April earlier this year when the blue brand added a tag team to SmackDown, but took them down twice as quick.

After losing to Murphy thanks to help from the Mysterio family, Corbin came out with two men by his side. Initially, the men were not recognizable, but later the commentary team confirmed that they were Wesley Blake and Steve Cutler – The Forgotten Sons.

The Forgotten Sons helped King Corbin defeat Murphy. The alliance has laid the foundation of a possible Murphy, Dominik and Rey Mysterio vs King Corbin and The Forgotten Sons feud.

Who are The Forgotten Sons?

The Forgotten Sons comprising Steve Cutler, Wesley Blake, and Jaxson Ryker made their debut in April earlier this year. The team quickly established their dominance with convincing victories and attacks on the Lucha House Party and The New Day.

As a matter of fact, The Forgotten Sons were all set to capture the SmackDown Tag Team Championships too! Sadly, all plans derailed for the trio after Jaxson Ryker tweeted to support then President Donald Trump.

His tweet led to a huge backlash across all social media. Fans, wrestlers, and the who’s who of professional wrestling called out Ryker for his tweet. It was said that there was a lot of backstage heat on The Forgotten Sons.

WWE immediately took the trio off television and they were not seen on TV for almost 6 months. However, Jaxson Ryker was nowhere to be seen when Corbin came out with Blake and Cutler.

It seems like WWE found a way to bring back The Forgotten Sons, and it makes sense. We do not expect Jaxson Ryker to be a part of The Forgotten Sons anymore. What do you guys think? Drop your thoughts in the comments below!
