Some really bad news for those of you that are hoping to see a Wyatt Family reunion this year. Any plans that have been discussed are now thrown out the window because Erick Rowan is now required to be out of action until at least the end of the year. He suffered a torn biceps injury during a live event earlier in the month.

At a live event in Saginaw over the weekend, Erick Rowan suffered some sort of arm injury, and it appears to be quite serious. However, the belief is that he is going to try to work through it because he knows that WWE moves people down the ladder when they are off the road. That is the reason why Rowan worked a live event the following night after being hurt.

Rumors have surfaced that we could be seeing the Wyatt Family reunion take place at Payback tonight. WWE set up the story with Luke Harper and Erick Rowan over the last couple of weeks. Neither guy has a match on the pay per view, so this could be how they get utilized. A reunion would give Bray Wyatt more momentum, especially since fans have been wanting the trio back together. It also protects Ryback, who will likely take the loss tonight.

There was a point in time where Erick Rowan and Luke Harper were receiving some of the biggest reactions from the live audience. Now, the reaction is close to dead when they come out to the arena. Rumors have it that WWE will have them initially teaming up with one another to gauge how the fans will react to them. If the connection is still not strong, then the front office will consider putting them back together with Bray Wyatt.

On the latest episode of Smackdown, Erick Rowan turned heel by attacking Fandango after he lost a match to Luke Harper. The heel turn was set up by a false stare down between the two former Wyatt Family members. The reason for the move is because management really had nothing for Rowan to do. Harper had a little momentum, but it wasn't anything major. The decision to put them back together should provide depth to the tag team division.

On the latest episode of Smackdown, Bray Wyatt had a moment with Erick Rowan after winning the match. That has led to speculations from within the internet wrestling community about a possible Wyatt Family reunion. That is actually an idea that has been discussed, as the front office feels that Rowan has not been able to connect with the audience whatsoever. Luke Harper has a little connection, but it's not enough to take him to the top of WWE.

Rumors have surfaced that there was a point in time where WWE considered the possibility of having Luke Harper be without his beard. It was most likely around the time where the creative department decided to split him apart from Bray Wyatt and Erick Rowan. Fortunately, the front office opted to not do the drastic gimmick change because it would have totally changed his character. A change in the future is still a possibility.
