Luke Harper Talks Injury, Career Goals, Conor McGregor and More w/ Chad Dukes Wrestling

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.
