Luke Harper’s return to WWE was unexpected, but apparently, he was out of action for a reason.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that: ” He had suffered a neck injury while he was out of action that was concerning, but he checked out okay.”
He was at the WWE Performance Center weeks before his return to apparently get this issue checked out. This is reported to be the reason why Luke Harper looked noticeably “down in size” upon his WWE return.
It was previously reported that Vince McMahon didn’t like anything that Harper did. Now that he is back and getting such a positive reaction from fans we wonder if that opinion has changed for McMahon.
