For quite a long time now, Luke Harper and Eric Rowan have been absent from Smackdown Live.
These are two behemoths that one belonged to the Wyatt family as brothers. During the Superstar Shakeup, they were brought up on Smackdown Live as a team. However, their unity did not remain for long.
Luke Harper had earned quite a reputation as a singles competitor, and hence the creative team wanted to give him a solo push. So, he turned into a babyface and parted ways with The Wyatt family. Rowan, on the other hand, suffered an ankle injury to get sidelined from the blue brand.
For the better part of the pre-Wrestlemania season, Luke Harper managed to establish himself as a strong performer. He had many matches with the likes of Bray Wyatt, Randy Orton and more. At one point, he even competed against AJ Styles for the main-eventer spot at Wrestlemania 33.
But, for some unknown reasons, he was taken off the television, going forward. The creative faced a certain backlash over Harper and Rowan not being present on Smackdown Live, anymore. As seen on this past edition of Smackdown Live, the process of bringing them back on the show might have started. They might debut on the upcoming edition of the show.

A video package was channelled to give a glimpse of Luke Harper and Eric Rowan who are coming back together as a tag team. They were seen taking off their masks to show their face to the crowd. The attire they were wearing was something much similar to that of The Wyatt Family. The name for their team got revealed, as The Bludgeon Brothers.
If this was any indication, then these two are coming back sooner with the similar eerie gimmick that they possessed back in their Wyatt Family days. The agility that these two possess, it will take them the least time to go to the top of the tag team division, for sure.
Previously, they acted as a tag team but have never been able to hold the tag team championships on the main roster. Hopefully, this time around, Harper & Rowan will be used to their fullest capability on “the land of opportunity.”
