When it comes to getting a big push in WWE, it’s good to have one of the higher-up executives in your corner. Erick Rowan no longer has Luke Harper to team with and Bray Wyatt is on Friday Night SmackDown as the WWE Universal Champion. Rumors are swirling that Rowan is in line for a big push, and the good news for the former tag team champion is that he has Vince McMahon in his corner.
For years, Rowan has been stuck in storyline limbo since the WWE officially split up The Wyatt Family. He had teamed up with Luke Harper a few times, and they won the tag titles, but they never stood out from the rest of the tag division crowd.
Erick Rowan received a pretty good push earlier this year when he was partnered with Daniel Bryan and was involved in a big angle with Roman Reigns. In the last month, Rowan has done nothing but squash enhancement talents on Monday Night Raw, but that may be leading to something much bigger.
According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, by way of Ringside News, Rowan is one of three superstars who are going to be pushed in a big way soon. The good news for Rowan is that he has Vince McMahon in his corner, and Vince is in favor of shooting him up the ladder.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that WWE is planning on pushing Rowan along with Drew McIntyre and Aleister Black on television. All three superstars have been featured quite prominently lately, and it appears as if 2020 will likely be quite big for each of them.
As for Rowan, Vince McMahon is said to be “heavily behind” his push and is hoping to build him up as a true monster. With Rowan’s size, his long beard, and his violent nature, he seems like the kind of superstar that Vince would want to push, as he has for other big men in previous years.
Right now, Rowan is on his own for the first time in years. Luke Harper is no longer with the company after his release, and Bray Wyatt and Daniel Bryan are both members of the Friday Night SmackDown roster. Rowan has no one to turn to but himself, and that could work out well for him.
The rumors haven’t quite revealed just when Erick Rowan is going to start getting into a feud with a big-time superstar, or who it will be, but it should happen soon. With Vince McMahon behind him, this could be big news for the former goat-masked tag champion.
