Re: Do you think Erick Rowan will come back or get released?
What many likely forget is that when the Wyatts debuted, Rowan was the stronger booked out of him and Harper for a good half a year. Harper was usually the one eating pins whereas Rowan was made to look like the dominant monster. It's telling that they had Rowan turn face and Harper remain heel when the Wyatts split up; heck, he was actually getting decent reactions at first during his face run and even got "Rowan Rowan Rowan" chants going at points. His sheep mask is pretty darned iconic and those Youtube vignettes they've been sporadically releasing have way too much effort put into them to be setting up his release. My opinion is that they will keep him on but he'll never go beyond the midcard.
It goes without question that Rowan is the least talented of the Wyatts but being a rookie makes that understandable, and he's decent enough in all areas - that thick Scandinavian voice is very distinctive and he's a fairly agile powerhouse. If WWE keep Harper as a face and separate to Bray, Rowan should either remain loyal to Bray or side with Harper and stick with either of them for the foreseeable future. He's perfect as an enforcer lackey that can also eat pins for his leader.
