• Backstage News On Jaxson Ryker Returning To WWE TV
On last week’s episode of SmackDown, Steve Cutler and Wesley Blake of The Forgotten Sons returned to WWE TV with a new gimmick, where they were bodyguards of King Corbin.
A report then came out that Jaxson Ryker of The Forgotten Sons, whose controversial comments led to The Forgotten Sons being taken off WWE programming, could be released soon.
However, that won’t be the case as Ryker made his return tonight.
Prior to tonight’s RAW, WWE taped an episode of “WWE Main Event” and Ryker returned as Elias’ enforcer.
According to Fightful Select, a lot of people backstage in WWE were surprised to see WWE bringing back Ryker as an on-screen personality.
This is being seen as a “dry run”, where WWE officials show Vince McMahon this new pairing, and if Vince likes it, then they’ll bring them to RAW.
It was also reported that last week on SmackDown, many people expressed that bringing Ryker back to WWE TV isn’t worth the risk.

At the peak of his professional wrestling career, Calhoun weighed 640 lbs, which means that he is in the Top 10 list of the heaviest pro-wrestlers of all time.
In 2017, he was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame as part of their annual ‘Legacy Wing’ inductions.
