WWE announced the release of Steve Cutler tonight:
“WWE has come to terms on the release of Steve Cutler. We wish him all the best in his future endeavors.”
Cutler joined WWE’s main roster in April 2020 as part of the Forgotten Sons, a group that also included Wesley Blake and Jaxson Ryker. It looked like they could be fast tracked to the SmackDown tag titles. But then Ryker posted a very bad and dumb tweet in early June, and Cutler tried to distance himself from his teammate’s remarks. The Forgotten Sons were quickly removed from television after that incident.
Cutler and Blake returned clean-shaven in December 2020 on SmackDown as King Corbin’s new henchmen, where they helped him deal with Murphy and the Mysterio family. But they have both quietly disappeared off television in recent weeks, with Corbin doing just fine with beating the Mysterios all by himself throughout January. Ryker also returned to television in December, as an ally of Elias on Raw.
Cutler has now been released by WWE, just two months after the gimmick change. He responded to WWE’s decision by saying it shocked him:
Unfortunately, today I was released. It was shocking, to say the least. But, I am excited about the future and all the possibilities in front of me.— Steve Kupryk (@SteveCutlerWWE) February 5, 2021
Thanks for your continued support.
90 days... the countdown begins
With Lars Sullivan’ recent release and now Cutler, it’s at least possible that there will be more to come.
