While Luke Harper is still under contract with WWE, he doesn’t seem to be on good terms with the company and latest reports suggest that we might not see him on WWE Television anytime soon.
Dave Meltzer talked about Harper’s status during the latest edition of Wrestling Observer Radio and implied that Vince McMahon does not see any value in the former IC Champion.
According to Meltzer, Vince does not want to use Luke Harper. He is currently being paid to sit at home and we shouldn’t expect to see him in WWE again.
The former Wyatt Family member made some headlines in May this year when he requested his release from the company and went public with his request by posting about it on Twitter.
WWE Officials did not like this move from the former NXT Star. They not only declined the request for his release but added 6 more months to his contract for the time he missed due to injury.
With this extension, Harper’s contract which was originally expected to expire this fall will now end in April next year and the 39-year-old star will have to wait until then to get his release from the promotion.
Though it’s possible that the company changes its mind about him and bring him back to TV for lower card feuds or to put some star over before he is done with the promotion.
