WWE Superstars used to travel a lot as they made their way around the world one live event at a time. The pandemic changed all that, but there were some interesting combinations riding together at the time.
While speaking to Kurt Johansson, Big Kon, better known as Konnor of the Ascension, revealed that he and tag team partner Viktor used to ride with much different partners.
“We love working together. We’re also like brothers. It’s the oddest relationship because we never travelled together when we were on the main roster. I always rode with Erick Rowan and he (Viktor) always rode with Brodie (Luke Harper). And so he would ride with Brodie and I would always ride with Rowan, and we would always just go do our own thing and we’d meet up somewhere.”
The Ascension have yet to arrive in any other televised pro wrestling company since their WWE release. Erik Redbeard was last seen as part of Brodie Lee’s amazing tribute show on AEW Dynamite. Brodie Lee will be remembered forever, and Viktor has a lot of road stories with Brodie even though they weren’t on the same team.
