​Mick Foley: ‘I Wasn’t Always Sold On Luke Harper!’, More


Earlier in the week, Mick Foley
posted a blog entry
which he praised Luke Harper. However, Foley wasn’t entirely sold on the Wyatt
Family member. In an interview
with the Chad Dukes Radio Show
, he
revealed how he used to view Harper. Here are highlights:

On Luke Harper: “I wasn’t sold on
him. I wasn’t sold on the idea that they kept comparing him to Bruiser Brody,
because Brody for the longtime wrestling fan was one of the great wrestlers of
his era or of all time. But he was known as the intelligent monster and Harper
was an out of control maniac. I think once you stop trying to imitate somebody
and find your own way things really start clicking. So, I’ve been watching him
and things have really been clicking and after the Wyatts have this amazing run,
hopefully as long as possible, yeah, I do think he has what it takes to become a
singles star.”

On The Shield breakup: “I thought
it was pretty cool, yeah! I didn’t see it coming and they had a long, a nice
long run. Sometimes, and I’m not picking on other groups, but when I wrestled
elsewhere for a couple of years it was almost as if they thought every person
watching the show watched every episode and kept up on everything, and they
would break up groups, literally within months, two or three months. ‘Yeah,
they’ve been together long enough, time to break ’em up!’ These guys [the
Shield] had been together for two years, the time was right; I think it gives
Seth Rollins a chance to break out. He was almost like the forgotten member,
even though he would steal shows. He wasn’t the crazy guy, like Ambrose, and he
wasn’t the guy with the incredible physique, like Roman Reigns. So he tended to
be forgotten. Evolution by the nature of its name should be constantly evolving,
I think it was a good move, and I think he upped his stock.”
