WWE SmackDown Live: 3 Underused Stars on the Show

2 of 4


3. Erick Rowan

Erick Rowan is built like a tree. He isn’t as agile as Luke Harper in the ring. However, Rowan has the look and the build of a monster heel. The company is usually high on big men. However, Rowan hasn’t had much success in the WWE. The former member of the Wyatt Family has had little success during his tenure.

His Wyatt Family brethren Harper, on the other hand, has had more success and air time on SmackDown. He was also a part of the main event match against the WWE champion Jinder Mahal this week. It could be argued that Harper too hasn’t had that many wins. Regardless, he is regularly featured on TV on most weeks. Rowan, however, has been mostly relegated to pre-taped vignettes and a mini feud with Harper that never really found traction.

WWE’s best bet now would be to pair up the former Wyatt Family members as a tag team. Not only does that ensure both these men get some purpose, but it would also boost SmackDown’s ailing tag division. After all, the tag division isn’t known for its abundance of quality heels other than the Usos. Harper and Rowan could become legitimate contenders for the title and can give the other teams a serious run for their money.
