It's fair to be bluntly honest that tag team wrestling on the main roster of WWE has sadly been neglected for a good while, especially on Raw.

The level we get, or used to get, on NXT is leagues above the kind of stuff we see on Raw or SmackDown, with teams like DIY, The Revival, Undisputed Era and Moustache Mountain all leading the way in previous years for the Orlando brand.

That doesn't mean to say that the main roster can't bring it, but it's just not the same - it's even driven a talented duo like Dash and Dawson to the point where they apparently want to leave the company.

And when The Usos and The New Day were going through an epic feud in 2017 on SmackDown, they were regularly on the pre-show of pay-per-views when their matches deserved a bigger stage.

One team who have been absent for a while though is the Bludgeon Brothers.

Harper and Rowan, who were formerly of the Wyatt Family, captured the SmackDown tag titles under their new guise at WrestleMania 34, holding them until two nights after SummerSlam 2018, losing out to New Day in a no DQ match.

It was then revealed following the loss that Rowan had suffered a torn bicep which had forced the change, and the team disappeared from television.

PWInsider is reporting that the pair are set to return to the road though, possible as soon as this week as SmackDown travels to Wichita, Kansas.

Harper also sorted out a niggling injury during his off-time, and was seen wearing a cast on his wrist months ago, so presumably both are now healthy.

The Bludgeon Brothers are set to return to WWE television as soon as next Tuesday.

It will give a boost to the tag team division, which despite having some strong names in there, sees Shane McMahon and The Miz of all teams challenging The Bar for the SmackDown titles at the Royal Rumble.

Compared to their red brand counterparts, SmackDown actually has a bit of depth in their division now. The Bar, Miz and Shane, New Day, Gallows and Anderson, SaNITY, The Colons, Usos and now the returning Bludgeon Brothers.

2019 and the year of the 'fresh start' could finally be the year we see the resurgence of top-tier tag wrestling on Raw and SmackDown.
