The Raw after Wrestlemania is usually where the surprises happen, but now that Smackdown Live is live on Tuesdays, we expected a few major surprises to happen there as well.

And we got a good one to start off the blue brand’s post-Mania show.

It looks like at least part of the Wyatt Family is still together.

Erick Rowan returned to help Bray Wyatt battle Randy Orton and Luke Harper. Rowan has been out of action since October of last year when he tore his rotator cuff in his shoulder and retired surgery.

In classic Smackdown fashion, this will lead to a tag match to end the show.

Rowan has floated in and out of the Wyatt family over the years. He briefly enjoyed a singles run where he was portrayed as a savant with an interest in history and viticulture. In the last few months Rowan has alluded to his return with cryptic videos.

Did this return surprise you? Share your thoughts in the comments!
