"If Luke Harper were a stock, I'd be buying him now. I've watched carefully for a while, and in the past two months, I've finally become sold on the big man, not only as an invaluable part of the bizarre The Wyatt Family, but as a potential breakout star on his own. Finding your way, and blazing your own unique path is no easy task in WWE, especially when standing in the very long shadow of Bray Wyatt. But Harper has found that way. I wasn't ready to buy into the Bruiser Brody comparison, no matter how many times it was brought up. Brody, a legend in the business, and a huge inspiration on my own career, was known as "the intelligent monster." Harper has excelled in my mind, by stepping off that path that Brody blazed, and finding his own, unique way to excel in WWE - as the guy who can do anything at any time, without any seeming rhyme or reason. The hurricanrana followed by a dropkick makes perfect sense, because it makes absolutely no sense. Here's one wrestling fan looking forward to Luke Harper's matches making little sense, but a huge impact on WWE Monday Night Raw for a long time to come." - Mick Foley praises Luke Harper

"He's smart enough to listen. He's smart enough to pay attention and pick up little things. He's someone who's a student of the game. He played football before he got here. He didn't spend as much time doing this as we had, but it's in his blood. His family's a huge part of this business. He's just a guy who's built for it. It's just part of him. We spend a lot of time in the car and a lot of time in the ring together, and stuff like that, so if he's not learning, then something's not right. But I think it's pretty clear that over the past 18 months that we've been teamed up up here that his progression and his development has been accelerated, to say the least." - Seth Rollins discusses how Roman Reigns is learning in WWE
