Luke Harper said that he wasn’t pleased about the fact that he was not drafted, but no one could blame the WWE as they had not drafted any injured or part-time superstars (barring Brock Lesnar).
Recently, Ryan Satin of ProWrestlingSheet reported that Luke Harper had been cleared to return prior to Backlashand was training at the WWE Performance Center.
The question looming since the draft with regards to Harper was where he would be drafted. Braun Strowman was separated from The Wyatt Family and went to Raw while Bray Wyatt and Erick Rowan went to Smackdown Live. It was reported by Wrestlezone that Harper is being advertised for future Raw events. This is a direct indicator that Harper will be going to Monday Night Raw.
There is no doubt that someone of Harper’s abilities would benefit far more from going to Smackdown Live, as they have proven in the last nine weeks that they are able to utilise their limited rosters far better than Raw, where talents tend to be either overexposed or underused.
