Erick Redbeard Makes Shock AEW Return On Rampage

Erick Redbeard

Former WWE Superstar Erick Redbeard has made a shocking return to AEW on Rampage and will be part of his first AEW match at Revolution!

Redbeard is best known for his time in WWE where he competed as Erick Rowan. He was part of the original line-up of the Wyatt Family alongside Luke Harper and Bray Wyatt. During his time in WWE, Rowan captured the SmackDown Tag Team Championship on two occasions, once with Harper as The Bludgeon Brothers, and once with current AEW star Bryan Danielson.

Erick Redbeard’s time in WWE came to an end in April 2020 as he was released as part of ongoing budget cuts in the company. Since then he has wrestled occasionally on the independent scene and made a brief appearance in AEW in December 2020 where he paid tribute to his former tag team partner, the late Brodie Lee (Harper).

On AEW Rampage on Friday, Death Triangle took to the ring to lay down a challenge to the House Of Black for a match at Revolution. Alex Abrahantes told the world that despite Rey Fenix still being out of action that Death Triangle had three men to fight Malakai Black, Brody King, and Buddy Matthews.

Abrahantes then introduced Erick Redbeard as Death Triangle’s monster to complete their line-up for Sunday. Redbeard, PAC, and Penta Oscuro then cleared the ring of security and the House Of Black, standing tall before the two teams meet on The Buy In at Revolution.

There are currently nine matches scheduled for AEW Revolution, with three scheduled for The Buy In:

  • HOOK vs QT Marshall – The Buy In
