For a number of weeks now Erick Rowan has been carrying a cage to the ring and talking into it backstage.
This has led to pretty much everyone asking… what the hell’s inside it?
In this list we’ll take a look at five things Rowan could possibly be so protective over to go to the extent that he has to make sure no harm comes to it, or no-one finds out what is it.
Oh and also, this isn’t meant to be a serious thing, so please don’t take it as such.
Larry Steve The Pig
Alexa Bliss’ pig Larry Steve is everyone’s favourite pig, perhaps apart from Huskus, and there are a couple of reasons why Erick Rowan may have taken a fancy to him.
Now Bliss used to date Buddy Murphy, which meant Murphy got to know Larry Steve quite well.
If you turn your mind back a few months, you’ll remember that Buddy Murphy was the man who initially outed Rowan as being the man who effectively tried to kill Roman Reigns.
Rowan never really got his revenge on Murphy, so being the genius he is, perhaps he thought stealing his ex’s pet pig would be the best way forward.
Luke Harper’s Contract
I’m sure you’ve all heard this joke before but I’m using it again anyway.
Harper publicly requested his release from WWE a number of months ago, but this was rejected by the company despite him not being used on TV.
He was brought back briefly recently to team with former tag partner Rowan against Daniel Bryan and Roman Reigns, but after that, has vanished completely again.
It’s been reported that WWE has actually added time onto Harper’s contract, so maybe they’ve got Rowan to hide it from him so he doesn’t actually know himself how long he’s got left.
Rowan keeps calling himself daddy when talking to whatever’s in the cage, and perhaps there’s more to Hornswoggle’s father situation than we first thought.
First it was revealed he was Vince’s illegitimate child, then it turned out he was Finlay’s, but what if the truth this whole time is that Rowan is his literal daddy.
He’d fit in the cage too, although I’m not sure even Rowan would be able to carry him around with just one arm.
And it also explains how The Fiend can keep dragging people under the ring without disturbing Hornswoggle – it’s because he’s not there anymore!
Just A Camera
Before Rowan’s matches we always get an in-cage view of him talking into said cage and calling himself daddy.
Maybe all that’s in the cage is a really expensive camera and Rowan just wants to look after it so it doesn’t break or get stolen?
Don’t ask me how he’s managed to get it hooked up to WWE production, but I’m sure he’s clever enough to.
When all is said and done, you have to remember this is WWE.
As such, the idea of not following through on intriguing angles and storylines is one that happens quite a bit.
I’d certainly say it’s within the realms of likelihood that, at some point, Vince will just get bored of this and Rowan, his cage, or both, will just disappear.
