• WWE Tag Team May Be Getting A Gimmick Change
The Forgotten Sons were set to feud with SmackDown Tag Team Champions The New Day after Money In The Bank. However, Jaxson Ryker, Steve Cutler and Wesley Blake were taken off TV due to Ryker’s controversial comments on Twitter.
We noted earlier that WWE doesn’t have any plans for them to make their return to TV for a while.
In an update to the previous report, WrestlingNewsco noted that due to the current political situation in the USA, The Forgotten Sons might be getting a gimmick change when they return to SmackDown.
“There has been talk of a new gimmick for Steve Cutler and Wesley Blake when they return to television. I don’t know when they will return to WWE TV but one person I spoke with says that their current gimmick won’t work now because of what is going on in the real world with the protests around the country.”
