Speculation is rife within the wrestling community regarding the potential return of Erick Rowan to WWE. Rowan’s sudden withdrawal from several independent bookings, notably including one for East Coast Pro Wrestling (ECPW), has ignited rumors suggesting a possible reunion with WWE.

The buzz surrounding Rowan’s potential return gained momentum after ECPW announced that he had withdrawn from the event due to “new contractual obligations.” Many interpreted this statement as a strong indication of Rowan’s imminent return to the WWE fold.

Adding fuel to the speculation, reports from PWInsider revealed that Rowan was spotted in Pittsburgh last week. Pittsburgh holds significance as the location where aspiring WWE talent undergo medical evaluations before signing contracts with the company.

Intriguingly, WWE has dropped hints on television hinting at the return of the “Uncle Howdy” character, a persona associated with the late Bray Wyatt, played by Wyatt’s real-life brother Bo Dallas. The first tease surfaced at the conclusion of a documentary honoring Wyatt, fueling speculation that Rowan (a former member of The Wyatt Family) might be returning to be a part of this storyline.

Adding further intrigue to the mix is the possibility of Braun Strowman’s involvement in the “Howdy” storyline. Strowman, who has been sidelined with a neck injury, is anticipated to make his return to WWE in the near future.

Below are Erick Rowan’s top accomplishments in WWE:

– 2x SmackDown Tag Team Champion (once with Luke Harper and once with Daniel Bryan)

– 1x NXT Tag Team Champion (with Luke Harper)

– 1x Slammy Award winner

– Defeated Roman Reigns in a singles match at WWE Clash of Champions 2019
