Over the weekend, a photo surfaced of Luke Harper sporting a cast, now we have a little insight on why that was.
After months of inactivity on television and the below photo showing up on social media, there was much speculation on why Harper was in the cast.
Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer reports that Harper underwent wrist surgery, which is why he was wearing the cast. Harper has been off television since Aug. 21 when he and Rowan, known as the Bludgeon Brothers, lost the SmackDown Tag Team Titles to New Day. Rowan suffered a torn right bicep at SummerSlam and needed to undergo surgery.
With Harper being off television due to the injury to his partner, he elected to have surgery of his own.
Harper did take to social media to fire off a couple of cryptic tweets ahead of WWE Survivor Series.

There is no timetable for when Harper or Rowan will return to television.
