WWE Tag Team Champion & Draft to Raw (2016)

In early 2016, Erick Rowan & Luke Harper began pursuing the WWE Tag Team Championship, held by Jeri-Show. The two were revealed as top contenders to Big Show & Chris Jericho just before the Royal Rumble event. At the event, Harper & Rowan defeated Jeri-Show to win their first championships within the WTX Universe, ending Jeri-Show's record setting 252 day reign. Harper & Rowan would then face Jericho alone in a rematch as Big Show expressed no interest in teaming with Jericho after losing the championships. Harper & Rowan would then deface the WWE Tag Team Championships, putting their "Don't Stray" logo over it and giving it a new, worn looking strap. The team faced their next challengers, the Lucha Dragons, at No Way Out, successfully defending their championships.

Following No Way Out, the team of Edge & Christian (who had formerly challenged for the championships when held by Jeri-Show numerous times), resurfaced on SmackDown, expressing interest in Harper & Rowan's championships. Edge & Christian challenged the newly reunited Big Show & Kane in a contenders match, earning a shot at Rowan & Harper for King of the Ring. At King of the Ring, Harper got his team disqualified after Erick Rowan almost lost the match. Because of this, a rematch was booked for WrestleMania V under extreme rules, meaning they did not have a champions advantage. At WrestleMania, Harper & Rowan lost their championships to Edge & Christian. Following their loss, the two were drafted to Raw, along with the new champions, Edge & Christian. It was then announced that Harper & Rowan would face Edge & Christian one more time at Backlash, this time as the challengers for the championships. On the April 18th edition of Raw, Rowan faced Christian one on one, failing his team again despite a cheapshot on Christian before the match had begun. Causing speculation that Rowan is the "weak link" of the tag team. Issues further built between the team as Rowan lost again at Backlash off of a Spear from Edge, potentially leading to the team officially breaking up.

On the May 2nd edition of Raw, it was confirmed that Rowan & Harper had gone their seperate ways, as Harper faced and defeated Rowan. It was announced that the next week on Raw, a Battle Royal would take place between Rowan, Harper, Matt Hardy, Tyler Breeze, Cesaro & Samoa Joe to determine a #1 contender for Ric Flair's Intercontinental Championship. Rowan was unsuccessful, however, as the Battle Royal was won by Matt Hardy.

Wyatt Family Reunion (2016-present)

On the December 15th edition of NXT, Harper & Rowan defeated The Shield to earn a future shot at their NXT Tag Team Championship, the match was later scheduled to take place at New Years RevolutionAt New Years Revolution, Harper & Rowan were unsuccessful in defeating The Shield as Roman Reigns pinned Rowan off of a Superman Punch.

On April 2nd 2017, Rowan was drafted from ECW to RAW as part of the 2017 Draft. He remained with Luke Harper but the team were once again seperated from Bray Wyatt.
