Recently on E&C's Pod Of Awesomeness, pro wrestling legends Edge and Christian welcomed to the program one-half of the WWE SmackDown Live Tag Team Champions, Luke Harper. Among other things, Harper talked about how he and Bludgeon Brothers partner Eric Rowan were almost split up, why they are such a strong team, and having reservations about the mallet-wielding gimmick.
There have been talks of splitting Rowan and Harper before by WWE officials.
"Years ago, me and Rowan were told we're done. We're done being a team, we've done everything we can and we're here five years later in a whole new thing and we're Tag Team Champions, so I can't complain."
Harper immediately had concerns when WWE Chairman Vince McMahon pitched the mallet gimmick for the Bludgeons.
"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!'"
