Last August, just after SummerSlam 2018, the Bludgeon Brothers had to move away from the rings because of a heavy injury to Erick Rowan at his biceps. Thus, while they were SmackDown tag team champions, these two forces of nature lost their crown against New Day and they have been absent since the loss of their title. However, they should soon resume their hammer to demolish the teams of the blue show.
Indeed, PW Insider said that Luke Harper and Erick Rowan will return next week. A news confirmed in the wake of Wrestling News. According to the information on the site, the doctors have given the green light and the duo will be behind the scenes of SmackDown Live on January 22nd. However, if they are backstage, that does not mean that they will appear on television.
