You talked about a singles run for Harper and that’s what he wants the most. He said so on the Edge and Christian podcast.

I’ve always thought Harper has had a ton of upside to him and had the potential for a big singles push. However, when looking at the past there just hasn’t been that connection between him and the crowd. He had a forgettable IC title reign and they’re most recent attempt during the Bray/Orton feud had potential but fell a little flat. I thought he was fantastic as Brodie Lee on the indies and I’m sure he can get something going as a singles, I just hope it works for him.

Harper wants a singles run and becky wanted a heel run…somehow ones worst than the other.
