We have an update on WWE’s plans involving the Forgotten Sons. In a report provided by Fightful Select, new plans are being discussed internally about bringing the group back to TV soon.
The group has been off WWE television since Jaxson Ryker drew heavy backlash online from fans and his peers in WWE for posting in support of President Donald Trump shortly after police controversially used tear gas, pepper spray bullets, and flash bangs to clear out protestors in Lafeyette Park in Washington DC and Trump then walked across the park for a photo op at a church.
The tweet sent out by Ryker caused a heavy amount of tension in the WWE locker room, especially when it caused comments by Ryker from 2009 to resurface in which he said that people of color “need to realize how good they have it.”
At this time, there’s no word on whether Ryker will be involved in the group moving forward or not, but they were told that Edge has given the group advice and creative was told to come up with ideas for the team.
The Forgotten Sons, including Jaxson Ryder, have been teasing their return on social media for the past month or so, presuming that WWE may be ready to relaunch the group in the near future.
