“I Put My Life in His Hands” – Jon Moxley Talks About the Moment When Luke Harper Sent Him Through a Ladder

Luke Harper had some fantastic moments in WWE and was part of several memorable saves, including the time that he prevented Mustafa Ali from certain injury at WrestleMania 35.

Jon Moxley, who was known as Dean Ambrose in WWE recently spoke to Sports Illustrated about some of the best moments he had with Harper and brought up their collision at WrestleMania 31.

At the time, Ambrose was part of the ladder match for the Intercontinental Championship and needed a reason to be written out of the rest of the show so that he couldn’t prevent Seth Rollins from cashing in.

It was decided that he would be sent through a ladder by Luke Harper in one of the craziest bumps of all time, and Jon Moxley himself recently admitted that its a bump that he would have only trusted Harper to deliver.

“We wanted to make the highlight reel. We figured the only way we could do that was if I nearly killed myself with a death-defying bump. So we devised this spot where he powerbombs me from the ring to the floor through a steel ladder, and that’s f—— sketchy.”

“It’s an extremely dangerous bump, going backward at a high angle. It was a gnarly bump. Vince [McMahon] bugged out. He thought I was dead, which meant it was a good f—— bump. And we made the highlight reel. I maintain to this day that I would not have trusted anybody else on the planet with that bump. I put my life in his hands, and I walked away.”
