Luke Harper On Feeling Like "A Back-Up Dancer" In Wyatt Family, Upset At Missing 'Mania Main Event

Luke Harper spoke with Gorilla Position about a number of wrestling topics. Here are some of the highlights:

Not being in the Wyatt Family (hear his comments in the video above):

"Nope, don't miss it at all. I just did an interview recently where I just talked about how frustrating it was to be in The Family, be almost a 'back-up dancer' for a strong amount of time. Me and Rowan broke out, and I broke out with the Intercontinental [Championship], but always in a shadow. For a performer like me, that's hard to take and hard to deal with and I thought that the coming out party of the last six weeks was very eye opening and, ya know, showed me what was out there."

Where his WWE career is currently going:

"I'm very excited, I'm also upset at that the recent goings-ons of not getting into the main event of WrestleMania, I failed and I'm very upset and bitter about it, but, ya know, there's not much I can do. I can only control what I can control and move on, but it's very upsetting how it actually turned out after the rise."

Main event dream match at WrestleMania:

"It would probably be a three-way dance between me, Bruiser Brody, and Terry Funk in a "No Holds Barred" match and maybe Vince [McMahon] isn't watching. So we can do some real crazy stuff."

Luke Harper also discussed wrestling at Madison Square Garden, his current position at WrestleMania, and growing up as a wrestling fan. You can hear the full interview by clicking here.
