SD Live General Manager Daniel Bryan has said that former Wyatt family member Luke Harper is under-utilised.
The 37 year-old had previously held the Intercontinental Championship back in 2014. But held it briefly, before losing to it to Dolph Ziggler at the TLC PPV.
In an interview with FOX Sports, the former World Heavyweight Champion commented on how he expected Harper to go on to greater thing after leaving the Wyatt family and praised his match with Randy Orton back in February.
“I think that he’s somebody that we can utilize better. When he left the Wyatt Family, I thought the fans were really starting to get behind him – and his match with Randy Orton, gosh, I loved his match with Randy Orton. It was the February pay-per-view Elimination Chamber. His match with Randy Orton at that pay-per-view was outstanding, and every time you see him, he’s dynamic. The crowd gets behind him, and then you just kind of lose him on TV to where we don’t really see him much.”
Harper wasn’t the only superstar that Bryan spoke about in how they could be used better. With American Alpha, Sami Zayn and the Colons, the other names in how they could be portrayed better each Tuesday night.
“I think we’re really losing out on that, but I think that about several people. I think that specifically about Luke Harper, I’m a big Luke Harper proponent. But also of American Alpha, Sami Zayn, even The Colons. I think that we have a lot of good talent on SmackDown that we could utilize a little bit better.”
