Why Did Luke Harper Miss Raw Last Night?

Luke Harper

Luke Harper was noticeably absent on Raw last night and in his place with The Wyatt Family was the returning Erick Rowan. This has led to speculation on social media that Harper is being punished for this photo which was posted, and later deleted, by Chris Jericho on Instagram.

According to Justin LaBar of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, Harper missed Raw due to personal reasons.

There is no word on when Harper is scheduled to return. Harper was on WWE’s tour of Mexico over the weekend. Rowan flew in to Dallas, Texas on Sunday night so Harper’s status was known at least 24 hours before Raw.
