Most Noticeable Return: The Bludgeon Brothers (Harper & Rowan)

After missing last week’s SmackDown Live after a successful title defence of the SmackDown Tag Team Championships at the Greatest Royal Rumble, Harper and Rowan returned to SmackDown Live this week in the form of a menacing backstage segment. The main purpose of the promo was to prove to the SmackDown Live Tag Team Division who the champions are right now and that they shouldn’t forget about them. Hopefully, Harper and Rowan return to SmackDown Live to compete soon to prove exactly why no one should take them lightly.
