Jaxson Ryker, the only remaining member of the Forgotten Sons, showed up alongside Elias a while ago. Their alliance broke down last week and the two battled on Monday night. Elias walked away from that confrontation, leaving things unsettled between the two.
According to PW Insider, WWE intends to keep Jaxson Ryker as a babyface. This was an official turn for him from he heel side of the roster. He will also continue his feud with Elias, but there is no way to tell who will come out on top of that one.
WWE sources indicate that the plan is, going forward, Ryker will be on the babyface side of the roster.
Jaxson Ryker’s tweets supporting Donald Trump during nationwide Black Lives Matter protests sparked a controversy. The Forgotten Sons were pulled from television after that, and a title run was also nixed. Steve Cutler has been released and is already in Impact Wrestling. Wesley Blake was also fired from WWE, but he is still under a 90-day non-compete clause.
We’ll have to see what’s next for Jaxson Ryker’s new push. He changed up his look and cut off his hair this week. Now he will play a good guy on television as WWE prepares to hit the road in July.
