• Luke Harper Reveals Who Came Up With The Mallets For The Bludgeon Brothers
During an interview with All Wrestling Week In Review, Luke Harper talked about who came with the idea of Bludgeon Brothers, the giant mallets gimmick & more.
Below are the highlights:
On who came with the idea of Bludgeon Brothers and the giant mallets gimmick:
“That came about with me and Erick Rowan being frustrated with sitting backstage. Meeting with Vince McMahon and brainstorming to the point that this was born. And basically, when he told us we could carry giant mallets around, we said, ‘Sold!'”
On his dirty tank top during The Wyatt Family days:
“If you’re a fan of Indie wrestling at all, you can go back to I think 2007 – 2008 and you can see me wrestle CHIKARA. And you can see me wrestle in a tank top and you can see me wrestle in a tank top that doesn’t look like the one I have in WWE. But it’s the same one…. People don’t believe me. I have three tank tops which I wrung terribly, fixed them many times. I had people rip them in the ring and swear at them and I’d fix them. And they’re hanging in my closet now… always washed.
So back in CHIKARA, I used to have to wipe the floors with them to get them to fall apart and eventually after so many washes the color would just stick, and I kept them. So a lot of people don’t believe me but it’s very true. Ask, my wife she is not happy about it.”
On his new movie Mohawk:
“I think that this a period piece that is not your typical good guy’s bad guys, white man chasing Native American story. It is a relevant story to what’s happening in today’s world and it is a thought-provoking piece that will make you wonder who’s good and who’s bad.”
• Update On Next Match Plan For Ronda Rousey
As seen on this week’s episode of RAW, former SmackDown Women’s Champion Natalya joined RAW and reunited with her friend, Ronda Rousey.
According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer, Natalya is expected to turn on Ronda and the two will then feud and the rivalry will culminate in a big match.
Natalya is being chosen to work with Ronda because they have trained together in the past and Natalya (who an in-ring veteran) has a pretty good idea what Ronda is capable of doing in the ring.
