I don't see much of a future for him. They did nothing with Mike Knox or Luke Gallows after their initial push. Rowan isn't any more talented than they were, probably less gifted in truth.
The fact is that Harper is simply better in every aspect right now, except raw size. Rowan is what he is, an experienced "hoss" worker who does the job of a big man relatively well, but isn't anything spectacular.
He's pretty damn underrated as highlighted by all the responses here. He's a big thick dude and good base wrestler for the smaller high flyers to work off of and will have a long upper mid card career AT WORST. He doesn't turn 33yo until November - how old was Jacobs when he first (re)debuted as Kane? Though not as agile as Kane, he's a good seller for his size and a mauler/grinder offense will "age well" in any transition to a singles career.
Of course mic work/ability will matter greatly and as far as I can tell is very largely unknown as he never spoke in NXT either and I haven't tracked down any indie stuff either - maybe that's evidence enough that he must be really lacking I guess. But Kane didn't talk for years, and then used the voice box gimmick.
