Erick Rowan was released by WWE in 2020

According to a report from PWinsider, the former Wyatt Family member Erick Rowan has inked a fresh deal with WWE. Details regarding his return remain undisclosed at this time. Rowan, who first joined WWE in 2011 and made his NXT debut in 2012 as part of the Wyatt Family, has experienced a journey since his initial departure from the company due to budget cuts. He resurfaced on the independent circuit under the moniker Erick Redbeard.

While there must be some plans decided for him, let’s have a look on how the storylines could look like as he returns to WWE again.

Uncle Howdy Storyline

While this is one of the most predictable storyline, it is possible that he is a part of Uncle Howdy’s storyline, as we can see the QR codes on both Smackdown and Raw, his association with Bray Wyatt adds depth to the narrative, potentially introducing intriguing dynamics and backstory.

Moreover, Redbeard’s imposing presence and unique character could bring a fresh dimension to the storyline, enhancing its overall appeal and creating engaging opportunities for character development and storytelling.

Braun Strowman

Rowan’s return to WWE might involve him initially teaming up with the returning Braun Strowman as faces, possibly reigniting their Wyatt Family bond. This partnership could provide a strong foundation for both wrestlers to showcase their strengths in the ring.

As the storyline progresses, Rowan and Strowman, both could gradually transition into the Uncle Howdy persona without a betrayal, adding layers to his character and bringing a new dynamic to his alliance with Strowman.

Going against Uncle Howdy

Rowan’s return could indeed lead to a confrontation with Bo Dallas, who has been rumored to return as Uncle Howdy. Initially, they might clash due to differing ideologies or objectives.

However, as the story unfolds, Rowan could see the value in Uncle Howdy’s cause and decide to align with him, forming a formidable alliance that shakes up the WWE landscape. This turn of events would add intrigue to both characters and pave the way for compelling storytelling in the ring.

Joining The Final Testament

Rowan joining forces with The Final Testament, comprising Karrion Kross and Authors of Pain, would establish a menacing faction within WWE. Their collective aim to dominate and assert dominance could make them a formidable presence.

With their imposing stature and ruthless approach, they could instill fear and leave a path of destruction. This alliance would create a potent force capable of wreaking havoc throughout WWE, elevating their status and leaving a lasting impact on the wrestling landscape.

Possible feud with Sami Zayn for Intercontinental title

Erick Rowan’s arrival could indeed shake up the Intercontinental Championship scene, adding another layer of intrigue to Sami Zayn’s ongoing rivalry. As someone hungry for singles gold and with a history of dominance, Rowan would present a formidable challenge to Zayn’s reign. Their clash would not only provide an opportunity for Rowan to finally capture singles gold in WWE but also elevate the prestige of the Intercontinental Championship through a high-profile feud with a crowd beloved star like Zayn.

While nobody is sure on how the storyline would progress, it will be important to understand that whether he is a heel or face, it will be a good time for him and fans should hope that he is not shown as what he was like before his departure (the spider storyline). Tune into Smackdown and Raw to find out more on how the storylines would progress.
