Westin Blake Open To Reuniting With Buddy Murphy, Steve Maclin

They could pop up outside WWE

Former WWE Superstar Westin Blake (FKA Wesley Blake) is open to reforming two of his tag teams outside of the company.

Blake was released by WWE in April 2021 and he recently spoke to Sportskeeda about his future, during which he mentioned teaming with Buddy Murphy again. 

"Buddy Murphy is another name that sadly, very talented, got released recently and I mean the opportunities of working back with Buddy would be a lot of fun," Blake said. 

Blake would also reflect on his team with Steve Cutler (now Steve Maclin) and the former NXT Tag Team Champion admitted he would also be open to teaming with his former Forgotten Sons stablemate again. 

"The great thing about these opportunities now is that you have Steve Maclin, formerly known as Steve Cutler, he's over at IMPACT. I would always... that's another thing I'd like to do. I think me and him have a lot of unfinished business. Of still being a tag team together," he added.

Where Blake will end up next remains to be seen, but he mentioned AEW, NJPW, MLW, NWA and IMPACT Wrestling as companies he wouldn't mind wrestling for. 

Blake and Buddy Murphy teamed together in NXT from May 2014 until June 2016. They were one of the top tag teams on WWE's third brand at the time and they held the NXT Tag Team Championship for 219 days in 2015. There were discussions within WWE about reforming the team before Blake's release. 

After Murphy moved to the main roster, Blake started teaming with Steve Cutler at NXT live events in 2017. Jaxson Ryker would soon join them as the Forgotten Sons and they competed on NXT TV from August 2018 until April 2020. The faction then debuted on SmackDown and competed on the blue brand for a couple of months until they were pulled from TV after Ryker posted pro-Trump tweets. 

Blake and Cutler would reunite briefly as King Corbin's Knights Of The Lone Wolf, but the act was pulled from TV one month later after Cutler tested positive for COVID-19.
