– Erick Rowan, who will wrestle Luke Harper at this Sunday’s Backlash pay-per-view event in Chicago, shared his latest cryptic message with a photo of a woman wearing a sheep mask on his Twitter account. The speculation online is that he is teasing the debut of Sister Abigail, although the storylines are supposed to have us think that she is deceased. Perhaps WWE is ready to introduce Sister Abigail or Rowan is just having fun on social media. There were talks to introduce the character last year but the company changed course.
Rowan is getting a decent push on Smackdown Live and he was able to really shine on this week’s Talking Smack. If you missed it, check out Rowan getting weird and creepy with Shane McMahon and Renee Young by clicking here.
