Luke Harper and Erick Rowan are a professional wrestling tag team in WWE, performing on the SmackDown brand. The duo debuted in WWE's developmental territory NXT in 2012, as founding members of the Wyatt Family stable, where they were followers of Bray Wyatt. During their time in NXT, Harper and Rowan won the NXT Tag Team Championship, before debuting alongside Wyatt on the main roster in July 2013, as a dominant villainous faction terrorizing other WWE wrestlers. The trio began to go their separate ways in September 2014, after Wyatt announced he was "setting Harper and Rowan free". As a result, Rowan would turn into a heroic character by joining John Cena's team at Survivor Series, while Harper would remain villainous and side with The Authority. Following a brief feud, Harper and Rowan would reunite in May 2015 and subsequently reconciled with Wyatt, reforming the Wyatt Family.
