“When we first got up there, we were gonna start a feud with Buddy ’cause Buddy had just got done with Seth Rollins and he was with the Mysterio family. So when we got up there we were gonna start a feud with Buddy and the Mysterios which was gonna be very exciting. It was gonna lead to a couple of pay-per-views, what we were told with that.”
Eventually, the plans had to be scrapped off as Aalyah Mysterio had contracted COVID-19 and had to take some time off the company. Ultimate, Cutler also tested positive for the virus and the plan did not go through.
“But that just didn’t seem to happen. Towards the end of the year the Mysterios went away for a little bit. I think one of their family members may have gotten COVID, so they were gone for like two-three weeks. Buddy Murphy, I believe, was around someone with COVID so they had him stay away. So the storyline kind of kept changing and shifting. And then ultimately Steve caught COVID as well. Once he caught COVID I was told to leave and we will work something out later on, and that just never came to fruition.”
Cutler was released by WWE on February 4, 2021, while Blake was released recently in April following WrestleMania 37.
