Harper reveals his initial reaction to Bludgeon Brothers gimmick

Bludgeon Brothers Harper

When the news of WWE repackaging Harper and Rowan first came, a lot of people suspected how the whole thing will turn out and whether it will be successful.

However, so far the new gimmicks for the former Wyatt Family members have been working well and they are the current SmackDown Live Tag Team Champions.

During a recent appearance on E&C’s Pod Of Awesomeness, Harper talked about the gimmick and revealed his initial reaction to the idea of the Bludgeon Brothers when Mr McMahon told them about it:

“We were presented with this idea from Vince that, ‘we want you guys to carry these giant mallets around. and, instantly, in my head, I go, ‘man, it’s 2018. What are we doing?’ And that lasted about a fleeting second. And then, I said, ‘oh, this is f–king awesome!'”

The Bludgeon Brothers are currently scheduled to defend their SmackDown tag team Championships against the New Day at the SummerSlam PPV.

    Great character gimmicks if you ask me. Would have fit right in during the Attitude Era and they are one of the few interesting character ideas that ive even seen WWE come up with in a long time. Its nice to have some that stand out from the rest as most are all the same character anymore and it’s difficult to get invested in when you have like 40 of the same character. Bludgeon Brothers are a refreshing deviation from the lazy norm and I enjoy their last couple matches I’ve seen
