The Wyatt Family minus Luke Harper.

WWE: Speculation emerges about big change for The Wyatt Family

Published 2 Comments

It has been several months now since we have seen a full-strength Wyatt Family appearing on WWE TV.

In fact, with their leader, Bray Wyatt, joining Luke Harper on the long-term injury list in April, the stable has since been kept off RAW and SmackDown altogether.

And, although Bray Wyatt is expected to return to action 'imminently', allowing for the return of Erick Rowan and Braun Strowman as a result, the WWE Universe might have to get used to the idea that they've seen the last of the Family as a quartet.

That's after a report from Steve Carrier on All Wrestling News revealed that there are currently discussions within the WWE about having Luke Harper breaks ties and The Wyatt Family when he himself returns from injury.

"There is talk of Luke Harper being separated from the group when he is healthy enough to return to action," Carrier writes.

Harper has been on the WWE's treatment table since suffering a patella and MCL injury during a dark match back in late March. The most recent update he offered fans suggested his return is still some way off, with an August or September timeframe mentioned.

As such, with the other three Wyatt Family members expected to be back on our screen as early as next week, it would certainly give the WWE creative team enough time to plant the seed of Harper's exit before the Superstar actually returned.

Since Harper's last appearance on WWE TV, the stable has actually undergone a face turn - although injuries meant their feud with the now defunct League of Nations was very short lived.

If they are to continue on in their new babyface angle, it could leave the door open for Harper to split with Bray, Rowan and Strowman so as to continue on as a heel.

After all, when Harper and Rowan were 'liberated' by Bray Wyatt back in 2014, it was him who linked up with The Authority while Rowan turned face.

It could, though, be an exciting opportunity for Harper to show his singles competitor credentials before 2016 is done.

Having recently landed himself a role in an action-horror movie, what for so long has looked like being a near disastrous year could actually end pretty well for the 36-year-old.

Harper has long stated his ambition to be a World Heavyweight champion in WWE, branching out on his own away from the rest of The Wyatt Family would be a big first step to reaching that goal.
