Erick Rowan On Initially Not Getting Along With Brodie Lee

Erick Rowan (real name: Joseph Rudd), who was one of the recently released WWE Superstars, and who is now known as Erick RedBeard, was a guest on the “The Lewis Nicholls Show” not too long ago to talk about first meeting Brodie Lee and having some animosity towards him.

This is what Erick Rowan said:

“I remember when they signed Harper, I was coming back an ACL injury, and I see another bearded guy, another tall guy.” “Developmental was still a dog eat dog place. Everybody had their own competitions. So, when I’m limping in, I see this guy, and I think he said to me [that] I gave him a look. I don’t remember doing that, but I think we started off on the wrong foot.”

“I know there was some animosity, because I snore a lot. So, when we were first roomed together, it wasn’t the best. Just the way we wrestled and stuff like that. I think it clashed at first, but then it became a really great mix.”

Rowan then talked about what he learned from Bray Wyatt during the time he was with him in the Wyatt Family. Rowan said that when he was on the main roster he learned to care less about what certain producers would feel and more from the people he got to work with.

This is what Erick Rowan said:

“It’s funny. He’s supposed to be like the father figure, yet me and Harper are way older.” “He’s the younger kid, but as far as learning stuff, I don’t think I took advantage of trying to learn as much when I was in developmental from those two and spent more time trying to learn from the coaches. It wasn’t until I got on the main roster and kind of looked around that I started picking everybody’s ear, and started caring less about what certain producers would feel and more from the people I got to work [with].”

“When we got on the main roster, we worked [with] a lot of people that had a lot more experience. You can be told something, but until you’re in the ring and are around guys that are better, have more experience, or have a different look, you’re open to learn more from them, even if they are younger. That’s when you start to grow as a performer.”
