Former WWE Superstar Wesley Blake recently spoke about his storyline with Happy Corbin before his release from the company. The duo of Blake and Steve Cutler were known as The Knights of the Lone Wolf and began accompanying Corbin in late 2020.

During his time with WWE, Blake was mostly known for his tenure as a member of The Forgotten Sons. The group also consisted of Jaxson Ryker, alongside Cutler and Blake.

While speaking on the latest edition of Sportskeeda Wrestling's UnSKripted, Blake detailed his final storyline in WWE. The former NXT Tag Team Champion claimed that he and Cutler weren't given enough time for the storyline to click as they were eventually released by the company. Blake said:

"So, we pitched to be with Corbin and that factor months before. Like I said, he was one of the names that came up. The way we pitched it, we were going to be his henchmen at the time and you wouldn't really know when we were going to introduce ourselves..."

He added:

"When it came down to it, it was them, WWE and their creative that decided to put us with Corbin. They decided to give us the look, they wanted a certain look, and they wanted a certain thing with us. Sadly enough, we never really got the time to come and tell why we were with him or why we were helping him." [12:50 – 14:50]
