• How WWE Kept Luke Harper’s Return A Secret

As seen last night at Clash Of Champions 2019, Luke Harper made a return to WWE programming and helped Erick Rowan defeated “The Big Dog” Roman Reigns.

According to PWInsider, WWE officials made a lot of effort in keeping Harper’s return a secret:

“Harper was not listed on the format sheet for the show and was hidden until just before the Reigns vs. Rowan bout. No one saw him backstage until just before his return.”

• WWE Avoids Mentioning AEW World Champion Chris Jericho At Clash Of Champions

The Miz had an opportunity to become a 9 time Intercontinental Champion last night at Clash Of Champions, which would mean that Miz would’ve equalled Chris Jericho’s record of 9 Intercontinental Title reigns.

However, the WWE commentators didn’t mention Jericho’s name because he’s now with their rivalry company, AEW, and is their World Champion.

The WWE commentators only mentioned that Miz had the opportunity to tie “the record”. However, Miz failed when Shinsuke Nakamura defeated him.
