The answer to the question of what is in Erick Rowan’s cage may have been revealed.

According to Brad Shepard of ProSportsExtra the rumor going around is that the cage contains a spider.

Everyone Wants To Know About Erick Rowan And This Cage

Erick Rowan has been carrying around a cage covered with burlap for months. When Rowan’s opponents would get close to the cage, Rowan would get mad and chokeslam the crap out of them. Everyone has been talking about this cage and asking “what’s in the box…I mean cage?” This is by far the most interested anyone has ever been in Rowan’s character. However, I guess people aren’t interested in him but just his cage. Close enough for Rowan I guess.

Some Spiders Can Spit And That Is Nightmare Fuel

A spider seems believable as it’s a common fear people have. People have run away screaming after seeing the innards of the cage. Also once Erick Rowan reached inside and something bit him. Therefore the creature inside has teeth or fangs. However, during one squash match the jobber got sprayed with something.

Some spiders spray venom mixed with spider silk on their prey. Oh and you’re welcome. because now I will have nightmares for weeks looking at pictures of spiders. I can almost feel them crawling on me right now.

Maybe It’s A Snake Or A Talisman

However, when I think of an animal which sprays…I don’t think spider. I would immediately go with a cobra snake. People are also scared of snakes. It also checks off the bite box as well.

Like Shepard said, WWE could change things up last minute. If they can’t find a scary enough spider, then they may have to scrap the idea entirely.  

Another possibility is that it’s not a living creature at all. It could be a doll, an artifact, talisman, or the most scary of all…a baby picture of Erick Rowan himself. I get the chills just thinking about it…

Rowan Went On A Date With It?

However, I do think it’s a living creature. Rowan talks about it as if it’s alive and he apparently spent Valentine’s Day with it. I don’t know where Rowan would take a spider on a date, but I bet it was super romantic.

Personally I hope it’s a skunk or a bat. If it’s a bat. it could “escape” and they could drop rubber bats on strings from the ceiling and freak everyone out.
