Given that the chairman of WWE is one of President Trump’s closest friends and advisors, Forgotten Sons member Jaxson Ryker probably didn’t think twice about his tweet supporting the President.
However, a number of his fellow WWE stars were less than impressed with his words, especially given everything that is currently happening in the USA.
Here is what he said:
Thankful for the @POTUS we have! God bless America. Built of freedom. Forgotten No More

And here is what his colleagues thought of this:
I’m thankful you posted this because I’m now aware of what you stand for. When black brothers and sisters are crying, you praise someone that refuses to acknowledge their hurt. https://t.co/O4xm5L3Rpl

Although I am part of a tag team while I wrestle, I am my own person with my own thoughts and beliefs. It pains me to see what’s going on in the world. I fought for the freedom of our country and ALL of the people who live here.

I get you’re a “bad guy” on tv. And I’m HOPING that’s all this is. Even then, that ain’t it. But if this is actually your true thoughts – I’ll be really sad, man. 😔 https://t.co/9unml5rsiY

The freedom you speak of entitles you to speak your mind all you want. I’m not here to argue that. I just really need to tell you that I think you pushing your shitty wrestling catchphrase as all of this is happening is absolutely fucking pathetic.
Good night. https://t.co/d34xdOXZr6
