Vince McMahon apparently had no intentions of using Harper

Luke Harper

Harper asked for his WWE release recently, but he was denied the release. Now he has to stay with the company for a longer time as they added on months to this contract due to time missed because of a surgery he needed last year.

The Wrestling Observer Newsletter noted that Vince McMahon doesn’t “get” Harper and this definitely doesn’t help Harper’s case at all.

It is said that one person “close to the situation” said that Harper has to leave the company and that is what he was trying to do until Vince McMahon prevented him from doing so.

Vince also complained about Harper due to his inability to ”do a Southern accent.” Harper reportedly kept on regularly pitching angles for himself even when he was out with an injury, but to no avail as his ideas were rejected.

We will keep you updated on Harper’s status when we learn more.

    Just go back to the “Bludgeon Brothers”. Period.

    But he has been injured before. He went out with a knee injury for six months or so back in 2016.

    At Harpers age I could easily see Vince thinking he is injury prone.
    Not saying he is right, but we all know how Vince thinks.

    The most recent injury occurred after Rowan was already out injured, so didn’t half the team

    Vince hasn’t “gotten” wresting in general, in a very long time. It’s honestly worth questioning whether he ever truly did, or merely got lucky in the 80s and 90s.

    Perry sure he got injured twice halting his tag team with Rowan. I’m sure having to change story twice & his 2 injuries I’m pretty sure Vince put him in the secondary unreliable injury prone category. Good enough for small fued & lose it for fear of getting injured again.

    Nothing in this article says Vince had no intentions of using him. It just said that Vince rejected his ideas. That does not mean Vince would have not used him in some angle/gimmick he came up with himself.
    Hell, it was only a few days ago news sites were reporting that there had been plans for him before he asked for his release.
