There are some speculations that Jeff Jarrett, who was recently in Japan, might have had something to do with it.

Many feel that Rowan will be lost in the shuffle as a solo performer.

October 9, 2014
Luke Harper
WWE has been struggling to figure out what they want to do with Bray Wyatt lately, so the character has pretty much been forced into the background.

The duo would replace Luke Harper and Erick Rowan.
October 7, 2014
Erick Rowan
In a move that might be taking place much too soon, WWE has decided to split up the Wyatt Family. Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper and Erick Rowan will all be going their separate ways. Wyatt is rumored to be doing a baby face turn soon since management ran out of top level opponents for him. Harper is expected to receive a nice push as a singles performer, while nothing much has been said about plans for Rowan.
October 1, 2014
Luke Harper
On Monday Night Raw this week, WWE aired a video, featuring Luke Harper and Bray Wyatt. Reports have surfaced that the move was done because management wanted to give Harper a singles push.

September 30, 2014
Luke Harper
Those that watched Monday Night Raw last week saw John Cena being booked dominantly against Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper and Erick Rowan.

August 28, 2014
Brock Lesnar
After witnessing Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper and Erick Rowan being utilized as pawns in the feud between John Cena and Brock Lesnar on Monday Night Raw, a lot of fans voiced their complaints towards WWE.

Instead, WWE changed their minds and decided to put Cena and Lesnar over instead.
August 27, 2014
Erick Rowan
There was a little bit of confusion on Monday Night Raw. Fans were led to believe that Big Show and Mark Henry were forming a team, especially after they were given a victory over Luke Harper and Erick Rowan. Later on in the evening, Henry came out and started what looked like a feud with Alexander Rusev. The reason for all this is because WWE was not sure what they wanted to do, and the scripts overlapped. The decision to do a feud between Henry and Rusev was a last minute thing.
August 20, 2014
Erick Rowan
Reports are surfacing that WWE will be throwing a last minute fatal four way match together at Summerslam 2014, where Cody Rhodes, Goldust, Jimmy Uso, Jey Uso, Luke Harper, Erick Rowan, Curtis Axel and Ryback will all be vying for the tag titles.

August 7, 2014
Luke Harper
Rumors are floating around that WWE is going to be bringing in another member of the Wyatt Family to help Bray Wyatt regain some of the momentum that he has lost over the last couple of weeks. Word has it that the story line will consists of Erick Rowan and Luke Harper both being banned from ringside at Summerslam 2014. The new character would make their debut that night.
August 3, 2014
Luke Harper
While rumors of a Nation of Domination stable are still floating around, there are also talks that WWE could simply be building up Kofi Kingston and Big E Langston as a tag team because they need a baby face fodder for Luke Harper and Erick Rowan. Management is seriously considering putting the tag titles on the Wyatt Family, and they're going to need more than Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso as challengers.
July 14, 2014
Jey Uso
Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso had their biggest challenge to date when Erick Rowan and Luke Harper challenged them for the WWE tag team championship at Money in the Bank 2014. The twin brothers delivered by retaining the belt. The Usos performed a double superplex on Rowan before finishing him off with consecutive flying splashes from the top rope.
June 29, 2014
Bruiser Brody
"I wasn't sold on him. I wasn't sold on the idea that they kept comparing him to Bruiser Brody, because Brody for the longtime wrestling fan was one of the great wrestlers of his era or of all time. But he was known as the intelligent monster and Harper was an out of control maniac. I think once you stop trying to imitate somebody and find your own way things really start clicking. So, I've been watching him and things have really been clicking and after the Wyatts have this amazing run, hopefully as long as possible, yeah, I do think he has what it takes to become a singles star." - Mick Foley shares his views on Luke Harper and his potential to become a star in WWE
June 15, 2014
Luke Harper
"If Luke Harper were a stock, I'd be buying him now. I've watched carefully for a while, and in the past two months, I've finally become sold on the big man, not only as an invaluable part of the bizarre The Wyatt Family, but as a potential breakout star on his own. Finding your way, and blazing your own unique path is no easy task in WWE, especially when standing in the very long shadow of Bray Wyatt. But Harper has found that way. I wasn't ready to buy into the Bruiser Brody comparison, no matter how many times it was brought up. Brody, a legend in the business, and a huge inspiration on my own career, was known as "the intelligent monster." Harper has excelled in my mind, by stepping off that path that Brody blazed, and finding his own, unique way to excel in WWE - as the guy who can do anything at any time, without any seeming rhyme or reason. The hurricanrana followed by a dropkick makes perfect sense, because it makes absolutely no sense. Here's one wrestling fan looking forward to Luke Harper's matches making little sense, but a huge impact on WWE Monday Night Raw for a long time to come." - Mick Foley praises Luke Harper
June 11, 2014
Bray Wyatt
Initially, there were rumors that WWE was going to add a tag team championship match at the last minute on Payback 2014 featuring Jimmy Uso, Jey Uso, Luke Harper and Erick Rowan. However, management changed up their plans once they decided to include a lot of outside interference during the match between Bray Wyatt and John Cena. WWE did not want to take away from the big match by having the performers working multiple times last night.
June 2, 2014
Jey Uso
There are rumors floating around that WWE wants to add another match to Payback 2014. Speculations are that Erick Rowan and Luke Harper will be rewarded with a pay per view title match against Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso. There does not appear to be a high chance of a title change, as some feel that the Wyatt Family can get the spotlight without the belts.
June 1, 2014
Luke Harper
After suffering a loss at the last pay per view, Bray Wyatt needed a victory over John Cena at Extreme Rules 2014, and he got just that. Wyatt received a heavy dose of interference from Luke Harper and Erick Rowan, but Cena still managed to overcome those odds. As Cena was walking out of the cage, a kid showed up and began singing, which provided enough distraction for Wyatt to hit his Sister Abigail finisher and walk out for the victory.
May 4, 2014
Bray Wyatt
A video from Monday Night Raw of John Cena being forced to face Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper and Erick Rowan in a handicap match. WWE allowed fans to vote on the opponents, and surprisingly enough, they voted for the former heavyweight champion to face three of his foes at the same time.
April 23, 2014
Roman Reigns
In order to increase interest in WWE Main Event this week, WWE did the third match between Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins, Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper and Erick Rowan on the show. Here is a video highlight of that match.
April 11, 2014
Erick Rowan
In a grudge match at Wrestlemania 30, John Cena defeated Bray Wyatt via pin fall after delivering his Attitude Adjustment finishing move. There were some interference attempts by Luke Harper and Erick Rowan, but Cena managed to fend them off. Plenty of story telling in the match, and the level of drama was really high.
April 6, 2014
Vince McMahon
In response to the lower than expected subscribers count, Vince McMahon has decided to give away the WWE Network for free to new subscribers. There will be no charge during the month of November. The move is being done to entice people to sign up on a more permanent basis, as the company knows that they really need to get to at least a million subscribers, in order to win back the trust of investors.
October 30, 2014
Kevin Nash
Apparently, when Hollywood needs a Russian enforcer, Kevin Nash is the guy to call. The former WWE star has a small role in the John Wick movie, which stars Keanu Reeves. In it, Nash plays a Russian bouncer. A couple of years back, the former world heavyweight champion was cast in the Punisher movie, where he played a Russian hit man for the mob.
October 30, 2014
Sin Cara
Depending on your name value, the pay outside of WWE is usually a lot less than within the company. For Sin Cara, who is viewed as a legend in Mexico, he is doing quite alright for himself. Reports have surfaced that the masked performer is generating approximately $5000 for every match that he works. Sin Cara is said to be working two to three matches a week. That is a significant amount of money, and he probably does not miss WWE much.
October 30, 2014
Vince McMahon
A good amount of investors have bailed on WWE after their much anticipated announcement today. Vince McMahon and company revealed that they only have 731,000 subscribers for the WWE Network, a number which falls way short of what they were aiming for. Since they were not able to break the 1 million mark, expect some changes to be made to the product. The project has been deemed a failure by many, and all eyes will now be on McMahon to see what he does to rectify the situation.
October 30, 2014
Bray Wyatt
A lot of changes have taken place on the upcoming WWE tour of Europe. Initially, Randy Orton was scheduled for the entire trip. Then, after he expressed frustration with his role in the company, management allowed him to leave during the second half of the tour. Now, the former world heavyweight champion has been removed from the overseas shows altogether. He is being replaced by Bray Wyatt, who will work matches against Chris Jericho.
October 30, 2014
Kenta Kobayashi
Since he had spent many years utilizing the stiffer style of wrestling in Japan, there were concerns in WWE about Kenta Kobayashi being able to adapt to their more moderate style. Reports have surfaced that the newly named Hideo Itami is indeed having some trouble making the adjustments. A match he did was recently filmed again because officials felt that his kicks were too light and off the mark. It is a sign that he is trying to hold back on the realism.
October 29, 2014
Curtis Axel
With Ryback making his return on Monday Night Raw, many are wondering about the fate of his former tag team partner, Curtis Axel. It looks like management will utilize him as a role player in the singles division. The former Intercontinental Champion worked a match this week against Kofi Kingston on WWE Main Event. The company really likes having a veteran performer like Axel around, so job security should not be an issue anytime soon.
October 29, 2014
Christian
Management does not want Christian back in the wrestling ring, but since he is still on the payroll, the company is finding various ways to put him to good use. The latest task has the former world heavyweight champion flying over to France to do some promotional work for the recently released WWE 2K15 video game. Christian will make various media appearances and encourage consumers to make the purchase.
October 29, 2014
Ryback
Since he was no longer a topic of discussion, Ryback managed to have his return to Monday Night Raw fly under the radar. That, in part, helped to generate a much better reception for the former main event performer than expected. WWE fans in the arena chanted his catchphrase and cheered for him, while online fans helped his name become a trend on various social media websites.
October 28, 2014
Michelle McCool
Monday Night Raw was held in San Antonio last night. Since the event was so close to their home, Michelle McCool and Undertaker decided to pay a visit backstage to some of their friends in WWE. There were never any plans for either of them to make an appearance on television, especially since Undertaker is still on vacation mode physically. The two of them still maintain a close relationship with management.
October 28, 2014
Randy Orton
As many already know, Randy Orton is being given time off by WWE to prevent him from being burnt out on the road. The former world heavyweight champion isn't just going to sit around idly during that time, however. Orton has been cast as the lead role in the upcoming Condemned 2 movie, which is a sequel to the film that starred Steve Austin.
October 27, 2014
CM Punk
There is some development in the bitter feud between WWE and CM Punk, it seems. When the former world heavyweight champion had his lawyers send a 22 page letter to the company about royalties, management responded by removing most of his products from their online store. Something might have changed backstage, as WWE is selling Punk merchandise again.
October 27, 2014
John Cena
Rumors have long been floating around that there is some professional resentment from Randy Orton towards John Cena because he feels that WWE shows preferential treatment towards Cena. His recent comments on Twitter appear to confirm the speculations. Orton told fans that management only produces new merchandise for him after they make room for the Cena stuff.
October 26, 2014
Bobby Lashley
Karl Etherington was undefeated and the British heavyweight champion when he walked into Kansas Star Arena in Mulvane last night. By the time that Bellator 130 had ended, however, his unblemished record was no more. About 90 seconds into the fight, Etherington slipped on a judo throw, so Bobby Lashley was able to capitalize and land enough punches to get the referee to stop the match.
October 25, 2014
Undertaker
Good news for wrestling fans who hope that the Undertaker remains in the industry in some sort of capacity after retirement. The legendary performer has agreed to work as an adviser for the WWE developmental program. He will make the occasional trip to the WWE Performance Center and provide evaluations and advice to the performers and the trainers.
October 24, 2014
Alberto Del Rio
WWE is looking for a new social media manager. While that normally would not generate much interest, it does so here in this case because the previous guy that held the spot was Cody Barbierri, the allegedly racist employee that played a huge part in the controversial Alberto Del Rio release earlier in the year. No word yet on whether or not the release is related to the incident, but more on the story should be revealed in the upcoming days and weeks.
October 24, 2014
Christian
There is going to be another Edge and Christian reunion in the near future, but unfortunately for WWE fans, it will not be taking place inside of a wrestling ring. On the November 28 episode of Haven, Christian will be making a guest appearance on the show. His character will be a close friend of Dwight, the character portrayed by Edge.
October 23, 2014
John Cena
Even though he could possibly still be with WWE for the next several years, John Cena is now taking steps to ensure that he will have income after his wrestling days are over. The former heavyweight champion has partnered up with Leftfield Pictures, and they are going to be producing a variety of reality television shows to shop to the networks. Leftfield Pictures has had much success with Pawn Stars.
October 22, 2014
Batista
While he has long maintained that he has no desires to leave WWE for Hollywood, John Cena is publicly expressing interest in expanding his horizons. The former heavyweight champion wants to show the audience that he can do comedic roles. The belief is that he might have been influenced by the massive success of the Rock and Batista over the last couple of years.
October 22, 2014
Dean Ambrose
Rumors are floating around that Randy Orton suffered a serious injury during the handicap street fight tag team match on Monday Night Raw. It took place early in the match when Dean Ambrose dove out of the ring and on to the heels. Orton reportedly told the trainer that the ruptured disc in his back was messed up. No word yet on whether or not he can work Hell in a Cell 2014, but as a precaution, WWE kept Orton from working Smackdown this week.
October 22, 2014
