Luke Harper has been ready for a WWE return to television for a while now, but he hasn’t been used. He still looks the same and is in great shape, but for some reason the former Wyatt Family member isn’t involved with any television storyline.
Harper tried to get his WWE release and asked for it quite publicly. Then the company denied it and tacked on three months for good measure to make up for his injury recover time.
Now there might be some hope that he could be getting another chance on television.
“We heard rumblings that Luke Harper would be at this week TV tapings,” Mike Johnson said on PW Insider Elite audio. This could be a very positive thing for people who miss seeing Harper, but it is no guarantee they will actually use him.
You never know if Eric Bischoff or Paul Heyman might want to use Harper. He could be utilized in many more roles than Vince McMahon would ever give him. Because The Chairman is reportedly not a fan and hates anything he does.
This is interesting because if Harper does appear on WWE television then that means he needs to get Vince McMahon’s approval in some way. We’ll have to wait and see, but it wouldn’t be a bad idea to try and change his mind before Harper has a chance to see what AEW has to offer.
