Fightful put out a report today that further elaborated on the issues that Luke Harper is currently having with the WWE. According to the report, while Harper’s issues have been there for a while, the heat on him grew at Wrestlemania 35.
Harper was said to have riled up management by taking issue with Braun Strowman after the Andre the Giant Battle Royal. Not only did Strowman forget his spots, but he was reckless in tossing Ali out of the ring. Harper apparently injured himself trying to protect Ali from the fall he was taking during his elimination. According to Fightful, the situation was made worse by the fact that Braun Strowman didn’t seem to think he did anything wrong during the match.
In regards to the match at the Raw taping the next night between Harper and EC3, it wasn’t so much a problem with the match itself but the fact that Vince McMahon had already made up his mind on Harper and was going to hate on everything that he did.
