• Controversial WWE Wrestler Could Be Released In The Next Round Of Budget Cuts

The Forgotten Sons made their WWE main roster debut back in April, and were taken off WWE programming just a month later due to Jaxson Ryker’s controversial remarks about the political situation in the US at that time on Twitter.

On this past Friday’s SmackDown, Wesley Blake and Steve Cutler of The Forgotten Sons returned to TV and joined forces with King Corbin, while Ryker is still at home.

On Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer revealed that Ryker’s WWE career may be in jeopardy.

He noted that WWE hasn’t “gotten around to cutting him yet,” but Ryker will most likely be released in “the next round of [budget] cuts”.

The company isn’t in a hurry to get rid of him as, they “aren’t losing much money” and don’t expect him to go to another company and become a star there.

• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (December 6, 2018) – Wrestling Legend Passed Away

On this day in 2018, we lost Old School Wrestling Legend Larry “The Axe” Hennig due to kidney failure at the age of 82.

Larry Hennig wrestled for various promotions in the 60s, 70s & 80s, such as Verne Gagne’s AWA and Vince McMahon Sr.’s WWWF.

He was the father of Old School WWF Legend “Mr. Perfect” Curt Hennig, and the grandfather of current WWE Wrestler Curtis Axel.

Larry isn’t in the WWE Hall of Fame yet, but will most likely be inducted one day as part of the annual Legacy Wing inductions.

† REST IN PEACE LARRY HENNIG!

June 18, 1936 – December 6, 2018
