Luke Harper comes down on WWE for not giving him credit for elimination

WWE is usually the authority on their own history and pretty good at keeping up with it unless it’s something they want to change. After all, when a comment was made about the Paige sextape to Xavier Woods on last night’s episode of SmackDown Live during their rap battle WWE was pretty quick to erase that from their tape library. But it looks like WWE might have committed another faux pas on last night’s episode of SmackDown Live and they didn’t even realize it.

Last night’s SmackDown Live ended in an Independence Day Battle Royal where a number of superstars fought for the chance to face Kevin Owens for the United States Championship at Battleground.

During the match there were plenty of people eliminated and tons of spots to go around. But WWE tweeted out an error when they said Mojo Rawley eliminated Konnor of The Ascension. WWE’s Twitter account might have given credit of the elimination to Mojo Rawley but the man who really eliminated Konnor noticed and said something about it.

Luke Harper thought this was a pretty glaring omission and felt slighted. After all he doesn’t get many chances to show what he can do anymore for some reason. Being a big man with Bruiser Brody caliber talent isn’t helping him win any favors with management and that’s a real puzzler. This is certainly a shame and we’re not the only ones who notice this fact as Daniel Bryan agrees.

Luke Harper was actually the guy who eliminated Konnor and the former Wyatt Family heavy-hitter wanted to make that point very clear. Of course this isn’t the first time WWE’s social media crew has made a mistake and it probably won’t be the last because they’re just people like you and me and people make mistakes.

But Luke Harper thought it was enough for him to comment and he doesn’t want anyone to forget his name while we’re at it.

This is a nice change from Harper’s usual Twitter activity of simply logging in everyday to remind us what day it is.
