Luke Harper is tossing bodies around on camera for the WWE and movie directors.
Former WWE Intercontinental Champion Luke Harper is making plays inside of the squared circle and on the movie screen. Harper is starring in the film 'Mohawk' which is currently available on a number of platforms. Sports Illustrated caught up with the "Backwoods Brawler" to grab his thoughts about his current position in the WWE.
“Acting is a big ambition, but I still have a professional wrestling world to conquer. I don’t think I’ve even dipped my toes in the water compared to what I’d like to do by the end of my career. They might be high ambitions but they’re my goals and if I don’t accomplish them, then it’s on me.”
The 38 year-old 17-year vet of the wrestling game has a great deal of experience. He would go on to share his perspective on the sport of pro wrestling.
“Professional wrestling is a beautiful yet cruel mistress,” Harper stated. “She will treat you well and treat you horribly, but outside of my family, it is my one true love. I’m an addict for it and I’ll never go away from it, it’s my life. This is a buttress for pro wrestling and it can only make me better at professional wrestling.”
Luke Harper has gone through the Wyatt Family stage of his career, ran as a solo act and went back to the Wyatt Family. Harper is now teaming with his former Wyatt family brethren Erick Rowan as a part of the 'Bludgeon Brothers'; who have made their presences well-known on SmackDown Live.
"I’m exactly where I want to be. There came a time where I wasn’t so sure about that, but I know now this is where I want to be. The Bludgeon Brothers are the Bludgeon Brothers. We don’t care if people think we look like Kane. We are impactful and get the job done.”
