Former WWE Intercontinental Champion and current SmackDown Live star Harper made his WWE return at last night’s Raw house show in Rochester, New York.
Harper picked up the win over Mojo Rawley, and it is perhaps interesting to note that despite being on SmackDown Live before his absence, returning to a Raw house show could indicate Harper could be a part of the red brand going forward. However, it could just be due to the fact the show took place in his hometown that he returned there.
Before his return, Harper took a break from his usual Twitter antics to tease something going down at the show:
Is anything going on in Rochester, NY tonight?omit_script=1

Harper hasn’t been on WWE TV since he and Rowan lost their SmackDown Tag Team Championships to New Day in a no DQ bout on SmackDown in late August, due to Rowan requiring surgery on a bicep tear. Harper also underwent wrist surgery after BB dropped the straps.
Rowan returned at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view as WWE Champion Daniel Bryan’s henchman, a role he has played since. Both Harper and Rowan were cleared to return back in January.
