Luke Harper

WWE Superstar Harper has been out of action for months now due to an injury. Fortunately for him, there have been reports of him being seen training at the WWE Performance Center lately training for his in-ring comeback. According to PWInsider, Harper will be present during the SmackDown show tomorrow night in Toledo, Ohio. It is unclear if he will be making his televised return during the show this week or if he is simply appearing backstage for further medical testing. Rowan returned from his injury during the Royal Rumble event last month and aligned himself with WWE Champion Daniel Bryan. As of now, there is no word on whether or not Harper will join Rowan as part of Bryan's act on SmackDown.

A few of the top titles matches for the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view have been revealed now. As noted a couple of days ago, Daniel Bryan is expected to retain the WWE Championship during the event and at least defend the title at Fastlane the following month. According to Cageside Seats, there are currently no plans for any of the other titles that will be defended at Elimination Chamber to change hands. The show will see inaugural Women's Tag Team Champions crowned, so of course, this match is the exception. Nevertheless, don't expect to see any new champions come out of the event. For those still interested in seeing the show, Elimination Chamber will be airing live on the WWE Network this Sunday night.

On Monday Night Raw lately, Elias has resumed acting as the heel in his matches and segments. After working as a babyface for a few months, "The Drifter" went back to being a heel for his ongoing feud with Jeff Jarrett and Road Dogg. However, during a recent live event for WWE, Elias had a change of heart once again. According to fans in attendance for WWE's show in Saginaw, Michigan, Elias appeared as a babyface during the show when he showed up to face Drew McIntyre. Given that it was just a live event, it is probably likely that Elias' babyface reprisal was just a one-off. However, there is a chance that the company may have decided to go in the other direction with the character after all. Elias is set to appear on Raw later this evening.
