Luke Harper Reveals His Reaction To Vince McMahon Pitching The Bludgeon Brothers


One-half of the WWE SmackDown Live Tag Team Champions, Luke Harper, was recently a guest on E&C’s Pod Of Awesomeness to talk about several professional wrestling topics. Below are some of the highlights:

Previous talk of splitting him from Eric Rowan: “Years ago, me and Rowan were told we’re done.” Harper said, “we’re done being a team, we’ve done everything we can and we’re here five years later in a whole new thing and we’re Tag Team Champions, so I can’t complain.”

He and Rowan don’t “try to get their s–t in” and it makes them better performers: “Now, this many years later, we’re not worried about getting our s–t in, or who looks better, or who’s going to get the [win]. We rib each other about that constantly, but deep down, I don’t think we’re worried about it and it helps the team get over more than an individual.”

Harper continued, “what WWE wants right now, they want me in a team, so here he go. Let’s make it the best we can. And maybe there’ll be a time when I’m not in a team and then I’ll worry about that.”

Initial concerns when Vince McMahon pitched the mallet gimmick for The Bludgeon Brothers“We were presented with this idea from Vince that, ‘we want you guys to carry these giant mallets around.’ Harper recalled, “and, instantly, in my head, I go, ‘man, it’s 2018. What are we doing?’ And that lasted about a fleeting second. And then, I said, ‘oh, this is f–king awesome!'”
