Harper, real name Jonathan Huber, signed with World Wrestling Entertainment (“WWE”) in 2012, originally appearing in NXT as part of The Wyatt Family with current Universal Champion Bray Wyatt and Erick Rowan. The trio was called up to the main roster in July 2013 and found much success, feuding with superstars like John Cena, The Shield, CM Punk, Daniel Bryan, Brock Lesnar and more. Harper won the Intercontinental Championship from Dolph Ziggler on Raw on Nov. 17, 2014, and along with Rowan (now known together as the “Bludgeon Brothers”), captured his second WWE Tag Team Championship in a triple threat match against The Usos and The New Day at WrestleMania 34 at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.
Outside of professional wrestling, Huber has also acted for various projects, including starring in the 2018 movie Mohawk (currently available on Netflix), and a guest role on Damnation on USA Network (2017).
IceRays Pro Wrestling Night presented by Bud Light will also include in-ring matches presented by Gulf Coast Wrestling Alliance (“GCWA”), a longtime independent wrestling company in the Corpus Christi area.
