• Backstage News On Locker Room’s Sympathy Towards SmackDown Tag Team
Jakson Ryker of The Forgotten Sons recently made a controversial tweet that got him a lot of heat.
His Forgotten Sons’ partners Steve Cutler and Wesley Blake didn’t support Ryker and made it clear to WWE wrestlers and officials that they don’t share the same views.
Because of Ryker’s comments, The Forgotten Sons were taken off WWE TV and their planned SmackDown Tag Team Championship match was also nixed.
According to Fightful, WWE wrestlers have a lot of sympathy for Cutler and Blake:
“Based on what we heard, there is no real heat on Blake and Cutler, based on their partner’s tweet. And actually, there is some sympathy on their behalf as Blake and Cutler were in NXT for a very, very long time before they ultimately got their call-up this year. Ryker not so long, but Blake and Cutler were there for years and years and years before they ended up getting the call. So there are some people that are not exactly keen on how all that unfolded.”
