WWE SmackDown Star Works First Match In Several Months


Despite being back on WWE television for a few weeks, SmackDown star Erick Rowan has returned to action inside of the squared circle.

He did so by beating former WWE Intercontinental Champion Shelton Benjamin in a singles match at a WWE live event on Monday in Savannah, GA at the Martin Luther King Jr Arena.

Rowan made his return by helping Daniel Bryan retain the WWE Title over AJ Styles Royal Rumble pay-per-view event back in January. However, his last match came back on the August 21st episode of SmackDown Live when he and Luke Harper lost to The New Day.
