Luke Harper requests his WWE release

Unexpected but not a shock:

Harper made his name in WWE as part of The Wyatt Family, and later teamed with Erick Rowan to form a tag team on SmackDown. In recent times, he returned at WrestleMania Axxess after a long time out healing injuries, and posted about how important that was to him.

At 39-years-old and with WWE seemingly having no plans for him, there is little time to waste for Harper in accomplishing his career goals.

    You kidding me? They repackaged Rowan and Harper several times, there was no time to “make them stars”.

  • Soulshroude

    Agreed… but with all the repackaging, I’m sure he grew tired of it. OR, when Wyatt returns. I give Harper a bit of time off, yeah.

  • Soulshroude

    I’m guessing that the end of the “Bludgeon Brothers” was his last straw. Too many revamps and “repackaging” tactics. I’m not surprised.

  • EVH

    huh?? they gave him AND Rowan every opportunity to become big stars, either as a tag team or as singles competitors, but injuries halted their momentum seemingly at every turn.

    They probably couldn’t keep Stroman from breaking away from the Wyatt fam, but the core of Bray, Harper and Rowan should have never broken up (the New Day is proof of this) in fact i always argued that the Wyatt family should have recruited more members, almost like the nWo. Guys that were “lacking direction” and found a group, or family as it were, that could guide them. Curtis Axl, Dolph Ziggler, Ryder and Hawkins, Bo Dallas just to name a few

    waste. he’s either going to retire or hes going to end up in either ROH or AEW. love the guy, he has main eventer written all over him.

  • rob

    what a waste, this guy looked like he could’ve been so much more

  • Grant Thomson

    One of my favorite wrestlers of the modern era (no, not sarcasm). Very underrated talent stuck with a “back woods” gimmick that would never propel him beyond mid-card. I was sad to see Rhyno go as well, since I was always a big fan of his. This sucks.

    Lets see how this goes.
    Really gonna depend on whether WWE sees any value in him or not.

  • Nicholas Giambattista

    I didn’t know he was that old. They probably will grant him his release.

  • BB

    I’ve always been a big fan of Harper’s and I’ve always been bummed that they’ve never utilized him properly. It’s too bad.
