Harper discussed laying the foundation in NXT, rekindling the rivalry with the Shield at SummerSlam, the infamous tank tops he wears in the ring, as well as a discussion on his favorite football squad the Washington Redskins.
Thank you to Luke Harper for coming on the show! Follow Luke on Twitter @LukeHarperWWE and watch him and Bray Wyatt taking on Roman Reigns & Dean Ambrose at Summer Slam LIVE on the WWE Network August 23rd.
“Basically, the Wyatt Family laid the bricks that the NXT house is now built on.“
“The first run or match with The Shield always stands out to me, our matches, our wars.”
“The feeling was electric before we even touched and it was my family looking down the line and I’m looking across at three guys that were on top of the hill, the big dogs, and we knew they need to be knocked down. Since we had come to WWE, the Shield and the Wyatts were always on a path to meet, a path to see who was better, and if you look at the results the Wyatt Family actually came out of those quite well and will do it again in Summer Slam and for as long as the Shield boys want to keep doing it. “
“In my singles run I would have to say my ladder match with Dolph Ziggler in Cleveland for the Intercontinental Title was probably a career highlight for me. If throwing that pretty boy through a ladder isn’t fun I don’t know what is.”
“Obviously, I’m not a Neanderthal, I do do laundry, I am a human being. I can just not do laundry. That’s utterly ridiculous. I have several different shirts. I don’t know if that’s going to disappoint anybody out there, but I was I have a very rigorous warmup where I get a good sweat going before a match to prepare for battle. That is what people see, that is what people mistake for dirtiness.”
