Luke Harper has spoken about his time in the Wyatt Family going up against The Shield, which matches that he has been a part of stand out to him, and his dirty clothes he always wears to the ring.
In an interview with Chad Dukes Wrestling Show, Harper relived an epic moment of WWE history, The Wyatt Family vs The Shield.
He said: “The feeling was electric before we even touched and it was my family looking down the line and I’m looking across at three guys that were on top of the hill, the big dogs, and we knew they need to be knocked down.

“Since we had come to WWE, the Shield and the Wyatts were always on a path to meet, a path to see who was better, and if you look at the results the Wyatt Family actually came out of those quite well and will do it again in Summer Slam and for as long as the Shield boys want to keep doing it.”
The feuds between The Wyatt Family and The Shield were one of the most highly anticipated feuds on the modern era and it didn’t disappoint the WWE Universe. Harper said: “The first run or match with The Shield always stands out to me, our matches, our wars.

“In my singles run I would have to say my ladder match with Dolph Ziggler in Cleveland for the Intercontinental Title was probably a career highlight for me. If throwing that pretty boy through a ladder isn’t fun I don’t know what is.”
Harper has only won the Intercontinental Championship once, after defeating Ziggler on an episode of Raw in November last year. He was also an NXT Tag Team Champion with his previous Wyatt Family member Erick Rowan during his time in NXT.
Ever since NXT, Harper has always worn dirty clothes to the ring, and he spoke about this in the interview.
He said: “Obviously, I’m not a Neanderthal, I do do laundry, I am a human being. I can just not do laundry. That’s utterly ridiculous. I have several different shirts.
“I don’t know if that’s going to disappoint anybody out there, but I was I have a very rigorous warmup where I get a good sweat going before a match to prepare for battle. That is what people see, that is what people mistake for dirtiness.”
That is sweat on Harper’s shirt, not dirt. Not sure what is worse!
