These three men are here to make a statement.
A new trio has arrived in NXT and they are known as 'The Forgotten Sons'. These are no newcomers though as each man has a detailed resume' to bring to the table along with their hard-hitting in-ring styles. Former TNA Television Champion Jaxson Ryker is the leader of the group and he is flanked by Steve Cutler and former NXT Tag Team Champion Wesley Blake. 'The Forgotten Sons' made their NXT TV debut this past September against The Street Profits.
The trio were recently interviewed by WWE.com about a number of topics including how they came together and that question was answered by the leader Jaxson Ryker.
"Three men, same frustrations, a so-called American promise." Ryker said. "A promise that by doing the right thing, working hard and showing up on time, you will achieve everything you ever dreamed of. It’s a complete lie. The promise was tossed aside, cast out and forgotten. The three of us realized we all have the same ideals and goals here in NXT. We know we are unstoppable as a unit and we will not let anyone forget us again."
All three men gave their takes on what they feel needs to be done in order to make a statement in the black-and-yellow brand but former NXT Tag Team Champion Wesley Blake who has been on the outside looking in while his former running mates Alexa Bliss and Buddy Murphy have moved on to the main roster and captured championships - he has been trying to find himself once again in NXT. Blake went on to explain the difference between the Wesley Blake of old and the updated version.
"The difference is, Blake as champion was just that. A vessel, a marquee. Someone with no identity without that championship. Now, I have a family that’s a bond and our purpose is stronger than ever. The man, Wesley Blake, that you see now, is fulfilled." He concluded.
