– WWE took extra steps to make sure Luke Harper’s surprise return at WWE Clash of Champions stayed a secret, according to PWInsider. Harper’s name was not listed on the format sheet and he was kept hidden backstage until just before the Roman Reigns vs. Erick Rowan No DQ match. No one saw Harper backstage until it was time for him to come out and help Rowan win the match.
Mike Johnson of PWInsider also revealed that the Bulgarian drove from his home in Nashville to the show in Knoxville to conceal the fact he was going to be there.
Prior to his win over Kanellis last night, Rusev competed in the 51-man Battle Royal at Super ShowDown in Saudi Arabia in June, but prior to that last competed on the April 16 SmackDown before his absence.
