Erick Rowan Says The Original Bludgeon Brothers Pitch Looked Like Karrion Kross’ New Look


During a recent appearance on the “Chair Shot to the Cranium” podcast, former WWE Superstar Erick Rowan commented on the original pitch for the Bludgeon Brothers’ look, how it was similar to what Karrion Kross is currently wearing on RAW, and more. You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

On the initial pitch for the team’s gear: “I remember the first pitch meeting for they showed us pictures of what they wanted The Bludgeon Brothers to look like and it was literally like I think it’s almost exactly what Karrion Kross is wearing now where it’s like the Demolition leather-like straps [that] look like suspenders around here. He will he wrestle and we both looked at each other, like new. I think that’s when, you know, I had a few friends said design some things. Candela, Jason Baker, and I kind of had them help put together a look based on like, Norse mythology and different things, just to make it more us and, you know, and help with the math, the masks and stuff like that. So it just all came together because you know, we just didn’t say yes.”


On the one element kept from WWE’s initial idea: “But what one thing they made us do was they wanted us to have these mallets and nobody wants to just walk out with these crazy-looking mallets but luckily, my buddy Jason Baker put together these really badass-looking hammers with North runes with their kids’ names carved into them. So they were pretty badass. It was pretty cool. People always thought they looked fake, but they were like 25 pounds of solid wood. We could swing them like a baseball bat and they weren’t padded.”
