Erick Rowan Remembers His WWE Release
The former two times WWE SmackDown Tag Team Champion Erick Rowan is also one of the victims of the covid-19 pandemic who did not wrestle in a long time. After his partner Luke Harper passed away last year, he was not seen in any wrestling ring very much.
But finally it seems like Erick Rowan will return to action once again. As he is not signed with any promotion right now, it is evident that he will return on the independent circuit. It was rumored that the all Elite wrestling is interested to sign him. So a return to his former promotion would not be very shocking if happens.
Erick Rowan who is also a former NXT Tag Team Champion and is currently going by the name of Erick Redbeard recently spoke to Steve Fall from NBC Sports Boston where he looked back at his WWE release and also said that he was not ready to stop his story in WWE during the time. He said;
“I wasn’t ready for my story to stop on that adventure. It’s been a couple of years. I’ve stepped my toes into other avenues of entertainment which I fell in love with. I’ve been lucky enough to do some bigger arena shows in AEW and get that taste of the crowd, but I haven’t had a story.
“I haven’t told a story of what’s happened to me since I’ve stepped away from wrestling. To me, I would love to tell that story on some sort of stage because I think it could be very interesting to see what’s happened to me.
“I love continuity in wrestling. The last time anybody saw me I had a pet spider that died, so I would like to talk about my years of recklessly wandering the earth finding reason and purpose for life without my precious spider.”
