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.

In his three years with WWE, Harper has established himself as a top talent in the company, a former NXT tag champion, a former Intercontinental Champion and universally praised for his in-ring skill.  Harper started that climb with his brothers in cause, Bray Wyatt & Erick Rowan in the NXT system, a place that Harper obviously feels pride in helping turn into a phenomenon.

“Basically, the Wyatt Family laid the bricks that the NXT house is now built on.
That same NXT house also created the Shield, perhaps the Wyatt’s greatest rivalry, a rivalry that continues today as Harper & Wyatt face Ambrose & Reigns at Summerslam in two weeks.  Luke Harper talked about the opening stages of the rivalry that turned out a trilogy of match of the year candidates.

“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 hillthe 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. “
After the dissolution of both factions, Harper struck out on his own quickly capturing the Intercontinental Championship and engaging in a feud with Dolph Ziggler, culminating in Ziggler recapturing the championship at TLC.  While Harper came out on the losing end that night, the match holds a special place when he talked about career highlights.

“In my singles runwould 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.”
Finally, Harper put to rest the rumors surrounding the sweat-soaked tank tops he wears when he competes.

“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.”
