Most Noticeable Return: The Bludgeon Brothers

This week’s most noticeable return are the SmackDown Live Tag Team Champions, Harper and Rowan, collectively known as The Bludgeon Brothers. While they have been the Tag Team Champions since WrestleMania 34, they haven’t been seen a lot on SmackDown Live. They returned this week with Harper losing to Karl Anderson. With Harper and Rowan currently holding gold, WWE shouldn’t really neglect using them or they could risk making the titles look bad.

Is there someone you wish WWE would use more? Let us know in the comments!

Wrestling is my life. It's the only thing I am 100% passionate about. I started watching it when I was about six years old. The first event I saw was a VHS tape of SummerSlam 1991. My favorite wrestlers of all time are The Undertaker, Kane, Shawn Michaels, Chris Jericho and Edge. My favorite wrestlers right now are Millie McKenzie, Baron Corbin, The Miz, Rhea Ripley, Becky Lynch, Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens. Wrestling is definitely my main passion.
