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.
