WWE Backlash 2017: Match Order Predictions

2 of 7


Luke Harper vs. Erick Rowan

With Bray Wyatt moving to RAW the other two former Wyatt Family Members are left on SmackDown Live. A few weeks ago, Harper and Rowan faced off in a match that saw Rowan pick up the win other his former brethren. This match was made this past Tuesday when Erick Rowan went on Talking Smack and requested Shane McMahon to make the match. Erick Rowan picking up the win in the first matchup against Harper seemed a bit odd but with this match being announced it makes more sense.

Harper’s stock has been on the rise since being exiled from the Wyatt Family after losing to his former tag team partner, Randy Orton. With his recent exposure, most people know that Luke Harper is really good in the ring but Rowan is no slouch in his own right. When Braun Strowman and Big Show had their series of matches it showed that there’s still a place for a good big man match and that could happen here.
