Erick Rowan made a surprise appearance on AEW Dynamite this week, during a match between The Dark Order and Inner Circle.
Wardlow tried to interfere during the match for his side, but he was neutralized by Rowan, now known as Redbeard.
Redbeard went on to deliver his signature Iron Claw Chokeslam, allowing Dark Order to pick up the victory. Redbeard celebrated with the winners and held up a “Goodbye” sign for his former tag-team partner Brodie Lee.
Rowan and Lee were part of the Wyatt Family and later on as The Bludgeon Brothers in WWE. The duo performed together for over seven years across NXT and main-roster and won several titles together.
It is unclear if Rowan’s appearance was merely a one-off for the tribute, or he will continue to be a part of Dynamite going forward.
