A new resident monster is dominating the scene on WWE Raw ever since the WWE Draft has passed by in the month of October. His name is Erick Rowan who is squashing talents on a weekly basis on the flagship show.
It is now being reported that these back to back wins may lead to big things. He has one significant supporter backing him up who is none other than the WWE Chairman & CEO Vince McMahon.
The Boss has always been supporters for talents with bigger physiques and this factor might be working positively for Rowan on WWE Raw. As reported by Wrestling Observer Newsletter, there’s no confirmation yet on the long-term plans WWE has for Rowan.
But Vince is said to be “heavily behind” the push, according to the reliable source. We should note that the former member of the Wyatt family has completely turned into a singles competitor in recent times.
Rowan was involved in a feud against Roman Reigns in September following which WWE inserted him into SmackDown. The decision to push the monstrous superstar may have started around the time when he lost a Falls Count Anywhere match to the then Universal Champion Seth Rollins. The match took place on the October 28th episode of RAW after which WWE started a new angle for him.
Here’re some additional details on the Rowan push,
“A few weeks later on November 11, Rowan began the new storyline where he’s been carrying around some sort of mystery pet in a covered carrying cage. He has been squashing enhancement talents since the mystery pet storyline kicked off.
There’s still no word yet on what exactly is supposed to be in the cage, or what direction they are headed in, but there should be some sort of reveal ahead of the 2020 Royal Rumble pay-per-view on January 26.” (courtesy wrestlingINC.com)
It’s god to know that WWE creative is finally planning something for the mid-card talents so that they can make it to the big league. As reported earlier, Drew McIntyre, Aleister Black, and Buddy Murphy will also receive significant push as 2020 begins. Rowan is definitely not a new recruit to the WWE as he is performing since 2013 but re-building him as a monster is not a bad idea.
