Luke Harper sat down for his first ever WWE radio interview and shared his point of view on a host of topics such as the NXTand Wyatt Family, on whether he does his laundry and more. The highlights of the interview are below:
On the Wyatt family’s time in the NXT
Harper believes it was the Wyatt Family who laid the bricks to the foundation of NXT and it had a big role to play in the brand it is today.
The shield vs The Wyatt Family
“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. ” says Harper.
He added that since the day the Wyatts and the Shield arrived in the WWE, it was evident that their paths would cross eventually and it would be a contest to see who was better. He thinks the Wyatt Family came out pretty well from the feud and promises it would happen again happen again this SummerSlam as long as the Shield are up for a battle.
His WWE career highlight
“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. ” says Harper who clearly cherishes his Intercontinental Championship match which was top notch.
On his sweat-soaked tops
Harper states that he is not a neanderthal and does do his laundry as any other human being, He has several different shirts and says that he has a rigorous warm up before every match which results in a lot of sweating. “That is what people see, that is what people mistake for dirtiness.” he says.
