WWE Backstage Reaction To Jaxson Ryker Controversial Black Lives Matter Comments

At a time of great political unrest in America, SmackDown star Jaxson Ryker picked the worst time to show his support for controversial United States President Donald Trump. Taking to Twitter, Ryker said he was “thankful” for the President.

The tweet did not go down well with not only fans but also Ryker’s fellow WWE roster members, with Ricochet, Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, Mustafa Ali, Batista and even his own stablemate Steve Cutler sharing their displeasure at Ryker’s rather questionable comments.

As if that wasn’t bad enough, it has emerged that Ryker’s took to his personal Facebook account some time ago to share his opinion on the ‘Black Lives Matter’ group, shockingly arguing that it was “garbage”:

In the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer is reporting that WWE higher-ups feel as if they cannot fire Ryker for his questionable opinions. However, Meltzer did not that Ryker’s comments have unsurprisingly garnered him a great deal of backstage heat within the company:

“According to one person high up in the company, the belief is that Lail can’t be fired for expressing freedom of speech, but that the locker room is fuming at him.”
