RAW Tag Team Champion Luke Gallows recently spoke with Nick Schwartz for FOX Sports about his WWE return, the Southpaw Regional Wrestling special, and more.
You can read a few highlights below:
Luke Gallows comments on the atmosphere in WWE with Wrestlemania 33 approaching:
“I think there’s a different energy in the air for all the WWE Superstars heading into WrestleMania, myself included, because this is the biggest show on Earth. I don’t like to compare to other sports, but I guess for a lack of a better term, this is the Super Bowl. So everybody’s focused. Everybody wants to look their best, they want to perform their best, and it’s the highest level of competition that there is in our industry. So a lot of positive vibes are going into this thing, a lot of positive energy, and we’re going to come out on the other side looking great.
I’m here in Georgia right now before I head up to live events. Just opened the Bulletproof Dojo here, so we have our own training center. I’ve been with my good friend, former WWE Superstar Joey Mercury, working out in the ring all the time. So everybody’s focused and getting ready. When they’re at home, on the road or at these live events, everybody’s trying to tighten things up. We know there will be a lot of scrutiny when we get to WrestleMania in Orlando, but it’s a very exciting time. It’s a very exciting feeling, for sure.”
Gallows comments on what fans can expect from Southpaw Regional Wrestling on WWE Network:
“Southpaw Regional Wrestling is a concept of this … basically 1980s southern regional wrestling promotion or territory, and it’s a lot of stuff that the guys have been doing for years backstage to entertain each other. I know my character in particular has been an ongoing thing for the better part of a decade.It was really us getting to kind of take the gloves off and use our… comedic style, if there is one. You’ll get the chance to judge for yourself, but you’ll see a lot of people step outside of the realm of what you’ve seen them do, character-wise, and as in-ring performers as a part of WWE. So it’s kind of a chance for everybody to let their hair down. I didn’t get to because I don’t have any, but everybody else. And we had a blast doing it, man. That thing drops tomorrow. I just watched the teaser myself, I was trying to get them to shoot me a link but they won’t do it.”
Gallows reveals the biggest nerd in the WWE locker room:
“Oh man. Probably Enzo Amore. That’s the biggest nerd I have my eye on right now, you know, going into this Triple-Threat Tag Team Championship match at WrestleMania. There’s nothing that I will enjoy more than superkicking his head into the third row in front of 90,000 people. It’s going to be a great thrill for me.”
