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.
