lukeharpercrazy

For the first time in show history, Big Shooter sat down for a one-on-one interview that spanned an entire episode when Luke Harper joined the Chad Dukes Wrestling Show this week.

In a sprawling interview filled with ball busting, discussion of Harper’s recovery from injury, secretive Wyatt Family business, Suicide Squad, the Washington Redskins, Lucha Underground, Luke Gallows’ Twitter handle, and much more, Harper also reveals his career goals, thoughts on the brand split, Conor McGregor, and the world of wrestling in 2016.

After opening the show by clashing heads over the recently released Suicide Squad film, Dukes started the interview proper by checking in on Harper’s knee injury, suffered back in March.  While mum’s the word about an actual return date or his future with the Family, it sounds like his recovery is coming along nicely. 

“I feel really good, actually I just started moving a little bit better and made a few check marks in the rehab category that were long due.  So I’m happy, I’m happy right now.”

So Harper is feeling physically better, but mentally, it sounds like the former Intercontinental Champion has a chip on his shoulder specifically caused by the staff of WWE.com.  Being sidelined by injury during an all-important brand split, Harper is a premiere talent that you would think the website would include when speculating on which brand, Raw or SmackDown Live, will sign undrafted superstars.  However, in article hyping the “10 Hottest Free Agents,” Harper was snubbed by the website, something he takes Cryme Tyme to the woodshed over.

Fans often get excited when a former WWE talent hits the independent circuit to ply their trade in more intimate environments, but no superstar in recent memory has caused as much of a stir in the wrestling world with their post-WWE career plans as former 6-time tag team champion and 2-time Intercontinental Champion, Cody Rhodes.

After releasing the now infamous checklist in May, Rhodes is lining up a who’s who of dream matches that fill the remainder of 2016, beginning on August 19th in Joppa, MD at Evolve 66 and continue through Ring of Honor’s Final Battle pay-per-view on December 2nd in New York City.

In one of the most relaxed and conversational interviews we’ve had on the show, Cody joined this week’s Chad Dukes Wrestling Show for an amazing 20-minute discussion on topics ranging from land dealings with Bray Wyatt to his upcoming part on CW’s Arrow to Evolve and Ring of Honor to the chance we see him in the Lucha Underground temple and more.

The face that runs the place is back!  Not John Cena, but Big Shooter has returned to the Chad Dukes Wrestling Show.  Let’s hope that Thommy and Goat don’t turn on him like AJ Styles.  This week, Chad Dukes, Loud Goat and Thom discuss Cody Rhodes’ list, if Ricochet/Will Ospreay was bad for business and what John Cena’s future plans are moving forward.
