Former Wyatt Family member Eric Rowan might return on tonight’s WWE Raw as he’s backstage for the event in Dallas, TX.
Eric Rowan has been out of action since June after suffering a torn bicep muscle. Recovery time for the injury was said to be 4-6 months and he can return anytime now.
Talking about tonight’s WWE Raw, 4 big names are scheduled to appear live: Ric Flair, Shawn Michaels, Brock Lesnar & The Undertaker. After Raw goes off the air, Brock Lesnar & WWE Hall of Famer “Stone Cold” Steve Austin will go head to head on the Steve Austin Podcast, which will air live on the WWE Network. Many people within WWE believe that the interview is a work and is being done to set up the blockbuster “Austin vs. Lesnar” clash at WrestleMania 32 next year.
Below is what Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer noted:
“People in the company believe everything is a work. There are smart guys who expect it. Austin has denied time and time again that he’ll be wrestling at WrestleMania 32, but it could be that he is just working his fans. We’ll know for sure if it is or isn’t a work after the podcast.” Meltzer, however, says, “if it doesn’t happen on the podcast, it isn’t happening.”
Paul Heyman and Stone Cold teased this match on a previous edition of Steve Austin podcast on the WWE Network, which led to Vince McMahon being very angry because that match wasn’t in the plan back then and fans wanting that match more than ever made Vince lose his mind.
