The Wyatt Family is a professional wrestling stable currently signed to the WWE and performing on the SmackDown brand and comprising of Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper and Erick Rowan. Wyatt is the current WWE Champion and Harper and Rowan are the current World Tag Team Champions.

The Wyatt Family debuted in WWE's developmental branch NXT in November 2012, with Harper and Rowan going on to win the NXT Tag Team Championship. They would go on to debut on the main roster in July 2013, as a villainous faction terrorizing other WWE wrestlers, including Kane, CM Punk, Daniel Bryan, John Cena, Sheamus and members of The Shield, among others.

The original incarnation of the group 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 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.
