With WrestleMania less than a month away the main events are starting to take shape and the competition between RAW and Smackdown is fierce.

Monday night gave us a glimpse of what is to come when Goldberg defends the Universal Championship against Brock Lesnar, while Tuesday night confirmed that Randy Orton will meet Bray Wyatt in the ring in Orlando.

A big boost for the Eater of Worlds

Wyatt and Orton's program in recent months has seen long time Wyatt Family member Luke Harper become disillusioned with the WWE Champion.

Harper is no longer by Wyatt's side and while the Champion has been on his own now for a number of weeks, he could soon find aid in the form of Erick Rowan.

Rowan has been absent from WWE since October due to an injury, but he is now set to return just in time for WrestleMania.

As per PWInsider, Rowan is expected to return to WWE TV as soon as this Tuesday when Smackdown airs.

He is once again expected to join up with Wyatt and become embroiled in the Orton vs Wyatt feud ahead of WrestleMania.

Having suffered a torn rotator cuff in late 2016, Rowan has been spotted at the WWE Performance Centre for several weeks now.

He is now primed to make his return in Pittsburgh, PA this week and could even have an influence on the WWE Championship match at WrestleMania.

Battle between the Viper and a God

Wyatt and Orton will certainly meet in the ring at WrestleMania as the Champion takes on the Royal Rumble winner in one of the WWE's longest traditions.

The match is one that fans have seen before, but following Orton's recent decent into madness, the feud has gained a lot more than it had when they met at No Mercy in October.

With the title on the line this time, the two will surely put on a fantastic match and the inclusion of Rowan at ringside does cast doubts over a possible Orton victory.

With three more episodes of Smackdown until the WWE invades Orlando, Florida, it will be interesting to see just how much of a role Rowan plays in the WWE Championship picture.

Whilst he is likely to be supporting Wyatt, it could be possible that he could collide with Luke Harper - his now former brother.

The two have collided before and could even be used in a match at WrestleMania - Rowan will surely be hoping for a better performance than he put in at last year's event against the Rock.
