Backstage News Update On Luke Harper/WWE Issues

So, what is going on with Luke Harper and WWE these days? Here is the latest.

Despite recent reports to the contrary that have been making the rounds claiming that Harper was going to go back on the road with WWE, according to Dave Meltzer (@DaveMeltzerWON) and the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, it is not something that WWE or even Harper himself is aware of.

So it appears that one of two things is going on:

1. Harper will continue to not be used by WWE
2. WWE is planning to bring him back, but are keeping it a secret

Harper hasn’t been seen or heard of since April when he wrestled in the WWE Worlds Collide Tournament against Dominic Dijakovic in a match that Vince McMahon reportedly hated.

Soon after that, he went public with his desire for a release, which was turned promptly turned down by WWE.

We will keep you posted as additional information regarding the situation with Luke Harper and WWE surfaces.
