Luke Harper reveals he was furious with short WWE Intercontinental Championship run

Published 48 Comments

The Wyatt Family has become one of the most dominating heel factions in recent WWE history, over the past year or so.

With the addition of the absolute beast that is Braun Strowman, the Wyatt's look more powerful than ever. However, that hasn't really translated into Championship runs, except for Luke Harper, who held the Intercontinental Championship for a run last year.

Harper only held the belt for 27 days, and speaking on Chris Jericho's podcast last week, he revealed how much that angered him.

“I was pissed because I thought I didn’t get a fair run with [the title], really. I hadn’t really done anything with it,” Harper said.

The 'First Son' of the Wyatt Family went on to add that when the time came for him to drop the belt to Dolph Ziggler after less than a month, they decided to put on a show and let Vince McMahon see what he had done.

“I thought ‘this is bulls–t.’ So I remember talking to Dolph and I said, ‘hey man, I want to do something special here because I’m pissed.’ It was in Cleveland [Ohio], his hometown, so it was, like, again, a perfect storm of stuff.”

Harper went on to give a potential reason for why his run was so short: Vince was apparently furious with him after the night he beat Ziggler for not speaking in a Southern accent.

Harper - who is originally from Rochester, New York - was yelled at by McMahon after the excellent match that he and Dolph put on for not saying "I'm a team player" in a southern drawl. That sounds like absolutely typical Vince.
