Within the May 7 edition of “Smackdown,” the reformation of a previous WWE tag team was teased. It began when Luke Harper made quick work of Fandango in singles action, only to see former Wyatt Family member Erick Rowan appear ringside after the match. The two former friends, who turned foes back in late 2014, appeared to have put their differences behind them. Rowan proceeded to inflict further punishment on Fandango, as Harper looked on.
With the May 11 showing of “Monday Night Raw” fast approaching, WWE.com has already posted its five-point preview for the show. The first point, titled “Are Erick Rowan and Luke Harper reuniting,” teases a potential Erick Rowan and Luke Harper reformation even further.
James Wortman of WWE.com writes:
“Erick Rowan and Luke Harper have freaked us out for years at this point, but the moment they shared Thursday night on SmackDown sent a shiver down our spines. After Harper dispatched Fandango, Rowan lumbered down the entrance ramp and, despite his prior issues with his former Wyatt Family accomplice, proceeded to pummel the dazed dancer. Was this Rowan extending a gnarled olive branch to Harper? Have these one-time members of The Wyatt Family joined forces once again? Anticipate more from this eerie tandem on Raw.”

It certainly looks like WWE is going forward with Erick Rowan and Luke Harper being a team again. I wonder if Bray Wyatt will get involved as well.
