WWE Smackdown Live Superstar Luke Harper made a surprise appearance at tonight’s NXT Buffalo live event at the Buffalo RiverWorks in New York.
One half of the Bludgeon Brothers, Harper hasn’t been seen on WWE television since dropping the Smackdown Tag Team Championships to The New Day last month, a decision made after his partner Erick Rowan was sidelined with an injury.
Harper, a former Intercontinental Champion in his own right, surprised his hometown Buffalo crowd by answering a challenge put down by NXT North American Champion Ricochet! Check out the videos and photos below.
