Luke Harper Received WWE Job Call As His Wife Was Giving Birth!
Ahead of the Wyatt Family's battle with the Undertaker and Kane at Survivor Series this Sunday, Luke Harper has revealed he thought he had missed out on the opportunity for a job with WWE after missing a crucial call because his pregnant wife was giving birth.
The beardy star revealed on the Talk is Jericho podcast: "Two days after I had my child in January, I got a call from [talent relations liaison] Johnny Ace. And of course, the best part of that is I missed his call because I was in the hospital.
"So he left a message - his number cuts out and I think: 'Well, that was my chance. You don’t really f*** that up!'"
Thankfully, mate Cesaro was able to connect brawler Harper and Ace.
Harper recalled: "I'm freaking out, thinking: 'I blew it.'
"I was thinking it was all over but then I called Johnny Ace and said I was really sorry because I was in hospital having a baby.
"And he goes: 'Oh! No problem. We want to bring you to Pittsburgh to do your physical.' Oh, ok… Thanks!"
