• Luke Harper Reveals Which Match Resulted In Him Getting Buried In WWE
During a recent appearance on Talk Is Jericho, former WWE wrestler Luke Harper (now known as Brodie Lee in AEW) talked about getting buried after botching the finish of a Battle Royal on SmackDown on the road to WrestleMania 33 in 2017.
Below is what Harper said:
“We did an angle with Randy [Orton] where he turned, I got over. We got all the way to a championship match battle royal.
I think me and AJ got down to the last two. We did a spot where we go over on the floor and we hit it at the same time to do a match the next week.
In rehearsal, I hit it no problem. It was beautiful. Of course, in the actual execution of it, I f*cked it up a little bit, my a$$ slid on the apron. Either he touched first or I did, but it was obvious that one of us touched first.
They shot around it and they explained that ‘No, no they touched at the same time.’ Then the next week AJ, who was the heel, ended up making me tap and pinning me in the same match.
Like, they re-started the match and I was like, ‘Yup, this is the end.’ This is it.”
