Erick Redbeard, the former Erick Rowan, was let go by WWE back in 2020 as part of the COVID-19 budget cuts. He went back to the indies afterwards and has appeared in various promotions including AEW since then. Interestingly enough, he was unable to appear for a recent indie event due to new contractual obligations.

Erick Redbeard has made a few appearances on AEW television. The first time was during the Brodie Lee tribute show back in December 2020. After that, he appeared on WWE television following Bray Wyatt’s untimely demise last year.

During his time wrestling alongside Bray Wyatt, Braun Strowman and Brodie Lee, they were collectively known as The Wyatt family. Together, they ran roughshod over WWE and terrified their opponents.

East Coast Pro Wrestling announced on Facebook that Erick Rowan will not be able to attend his scheduled appearance at Coal Town Carnage next week due to new contractual obligations. This situation marks the first time in ECPW history that one of their scheduled stars has had to cancel, and it is beyond their control.


Despite this change, the event will still feature Former WWE Superstar Brian Kendrick, the debut of Vanessa Kraven, and all of the superstars of East Coast Pro Wrestling. The event will include three title matches, a New Waterford Rumble, and much more.

”We have just received word this evening from Erick Rowan that unfortunately he will not be able to make his scheduled appearance next week at Coal Town Carnage.

Erick stated that new contractual obligations are preventing him from making several dates including ours.

This is the first time in ECPW history that one of our scheduled stars cancelled and it is out of our control.

With that being said, the show will still feature Former WWE Superstar Brian Kendrick, the debut of Vanessa Kraven plus all of the superstars or East Coast Pro Wrestling.

Three title matches, a New Waterford Rumble and much more goes down next Saturday at The New Waterford & District Community Center.

Please message the ECPW FB Page if further information is required.”

WWE has been continuously dropping hints about Uncle Howdy’s return and it might not just be him who will return either. Erick Rowan also hinted at returning to WWE in the past. We’ll have to wait and see whether Eric Rowan has signed with WWE and will return to the company this year.
