While they’re currently the SmackDown Live Tag Team Champions and wreaking havoc on Tuesday nights, it wasn’t always easy for the pair to work together. In a recent interview on E&C’s Pod Of Awesomeness, Harper discussed his early problems with Rowan and went as far as saying they “hated” each other:
“When we first started, me and Rowan hated each other. I don’t know what it was. We just didn’t get along. We were forced to room together. He’s taller than me. If you look at some of my old pictures, I clearly tried to put weight on and it didn’t work well.
“He’s a f*cking giant and he snores. So, I didn’t sleep a lot. We just didn’t get along. Slowly came the realization of, ‘Hey man, we are stuck together. Are we gonna fight against it or are we just gonna do it?’ It took me a long time to realize that; but, when I did, we made it work way better”
