• SmackDown Tag Team Wrestler Wants To Be World Champion
During a recent appearance on Busted Open, SmackDown Live Superstar Luke Harper talked about working with The Wyatt Family, Braun Strowman evolving to be a top star, and wanting to be a World Champion at the end of the day.
Below are the highlights:
On working with The Wyatt Family:
“It’s mind-boggling to me. The Wyatt Family was a very special thing. The 3 of us came together at a perfect time. It was a perfect storm, and that rivalry with The Shield in 2014-2015 was a magical time.”
On Braun Strowman evolving to be a top star:
“I remember back when he first started, everyone thought we were crazy (when we said he has the talent). Watching how massive he is and then to learn Pro Wrestling that quickly on the highest level you could be at, that’s an impressive thing to do.”
On wanting to be a World Champion at the end of the day:
“I think the Smackdown tag-team division is flying right now. Shelton & Gable, New Day and Usos who are primed and I think they need the fresh blood. I think they need us (The Bludgeon Brothers) to do this for them. They have been wrestling each other many times and I couldn’t be happier. We had matches with the Usos 3 years ago and they were some of the best in my career.
At the end of the day, I want to be a World Champion. I want to be Intercontinental Champion. I also want to be a tag-team champion. If that’s my way in, then I’m willing to do it.”
