What did Westin Blake and Sara Lee do in WWE?
In 2015, Sara Lee was one of the contestants on Tough Enough Season Six. In the end, she won the contest and adopted the name Hope in the company. The following month, she began working on the Black and Gold brand before leaving the company by the end of the year.
Meanwhile, Westin Blake was known as Wesley Blake and was a former NXT Tag Team Champion with Buddy Murphy. After Murphy's move to the main roster, Blake aligned himself with Jaxson Ryker and Steve Cutler and they formed The Forgotten Sons.
In 2020, the trio made their way to the main roster and were assigned to SmackDown. However, the main roster run led nowhere as the stable was written off television due to some comments made by Jaxson Ryker. Later, he and Cutler returned as Knights of The Lone Wolf.
In 2021, Blake and Murphy were released from their WWE contracts and began working on the independent circuit. Murphy is currently in AEW, wrestling as a member of the House of Black stable under the name Buddy Matthews. Blake was last seen at the ROH Final Battle 2021 pay-per-view.
