WWE STAR BACK ON THE ROAD FOR THE FIRST TIME IN MONTHS

By Mike Johnson on 2019-07-15 16:39:00

Former WWE Smackdown Tag Team Champion Luke Harper is on the road this week for WWE, the first time he has been on the road for the company since this past Spring.  

Harper, 39, publicly disclosed last April that he had requested a WWE release, a request that was not granted.

Harper has been off TV since August 2018 when he and Rowan lost the Smackdown Tag Team Championships to The New Day. He returned to the ring several weeks back and competed on a Worlds Collide event against Dominick Dijakovic at Wrestlemania AXXESS in Brooklyn, NY just prior to requesting his release. 

Harper, formerly known as Brodie Lee, signed with WWE in 2012 and was part of The Wyatt Family in WWE NXT.  That group was brought to the main roster in 2013.
