We haven't seen Luke Harper or Eric Rowan on WWE TV in some time, leading many to wonder why they haven't been featured at all. Now, a report suggests the WWE plans on coming up with a new gimmick for the tag team of Erick Rowan and Luke Harper.
When they were used, both Rowan and Harper competed in single matches, but the plan is for them to reunite as a tag team in the near future. EWrestlingNews.com mentioned that there were plans for Rowan and Harper to become the guys behind the sneak attacks on Breezango, but no one knows if the WWE will go with that storyline. In fact, there is a chance they've been replaced by Primo and Epico for that role.
Rowan and Harper actually faced off against one another at the Backlash pay-per-view back in May of this year. Harper ended up getting the win. More recently, the two fought each other when the WWE visited Japan just a couple of days ago.
Though the two seem to break up and come back together pretty frequently, when they are apart, Harper is the more successful singles competitor. He's a former Intercontinental Champion and, for the most part, he wins more than he loses. While Rowan has struggled more on his own.

It sounds like the WWE might be thinking that Harper and Rowan are better as a duo than as individual wrestlers. This could be the reason behind them likely getting repackaged.
Harper kicked off his career back in 2002 as a backyard wrestler. He then spent time with Roc City Wrestling (RCW), Rochester Pro Wrestling (RPW) which is now NWA Upstate., Philadelphia-based Chikara., Squared Circle Wrestling, Ring of Honor, Jersey All-Pro Wrestling, Dragon Gate, Evolve before finally landing in the WWE in 2012.
Harper's WWE career started with him becoming a part of the Wyatt Family in NXT as he continued to develop himself as a professional. Rowan took a different path to the WWE than Harper. He started his career in 2003 and wrestled with various promotions within the Midwest.
Rowan ended up signing a developmental contract with the WWE which led him to Florida Championship Wrestling in 2011. Just a year later, he ended up as a part of the Wyatt Family alongside Harper. Together, Rowan and Harper ended up winning the NXT Tag Team Championships.
