Fans are still wondering what Luke Harper’s future holds with WWE.

Dave Meltzer cleared things up on the latest edition of Wrestling Observer Radio when he was asked if there was any update on Harper returning to WWE.

This is where he stated that there wasn’t an update other than the fact that WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon doesn’t see anything in him and doesn’t want to use him.

Thus, Harper is essentially being paid to sit at home right now while waiting for his contract to expire.

His deal was set to expire around late fall, but six months were added. The reason for this is due to a previous injury. Now, the belief is that he will now be free to leave around April.

This comes after Harper asked for his WWE release last April but it wasn’t granted. The belief is that WWE doesn’t want anyone to leave the company right now due to the competition that is AEW.
