Luke Harper Injured on RAW



Can March get any unluckier for the WWE roster?

Just a couple of weeks after whispers started circulating over Wyatt Family leader Bray Wyatt suffering from a "significant" back injury, and one week after "The Man That Gravity Forgot" Neville broke his ankle in a RAW match-up against Chris Jericho, we've got one more new enrolee on the injured list: the Wyatt Family's Luke Harper.

Harper was reportedly in action during the Philadelphia RAW dark main event in an eight-man tag featuring the Wyatt Family against Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose, Dolph Ziggler, and Sami Zayn, when he went down with a knee injury.

According to fan reports, the former Intercontinental Champion had been standing on the apron at the match's onset when his right knee buckled after taking a spill. He was immediately checked by trainers, and seemed to be in immense pain.


Audience members say Harper appeared unable to put weight on his leg, and had to be helped to the back by Braun Strowman and Bray Wyatt.


There's never a good time to get hurt, but it's especially alarming this close to a WrestleMania payday. While Harper hadn't figured on the card as we know it, he's been highly-regarded as the Wyatt Family's workhorse, frequently being used to carry the in-ring load for the less-adept Strowman.

The WWE has yet to release official news, but we'll keep you all posted. Our thoughts go out to Luke Harper as he hopefully recovers well from this blow.
