Ever since Luke Harper went down with an injury that was been quite mysterious, he’s been pretty active on social media as himself and not the Harper character. It’s been interesting to see him break character, but he’s had a lot to say about it recently.
Even more recently, Qwality TV recently sat down with him during their “How to Rehab An ACL Injury” series and Harper finally gave all the gory details about his injury, his timetable for a return to the ring, and discussed his belief in social media during the interview.
You can watch the full interview right here. Below are some of the highlights:
What happened to cause the injury?
“In late March during a dark match on Raw, it was The Wyatt Family vs. four random…’jerks’. Throwing punches and my leg buckled and popped. No contact. I thought I got shot. Thought someone hit me, but no one was around me. I tagged out and said, ‘My leg is broken.’ They said, ”You have an ACL injury’ instantly. Several people told me that. I got the MRI, got the x-ray, all that stuff, and it turned out I dislocated my patella and tore my MPFL ligament, which is the thing that holds your patella into place.”
When will you be back in the ring?
“It should be August, September, or October at the latest. Hopefully, September at the latest. August at the earliest.”
Do you think Luke Harper could become WWE Champion someday?
