This week marks the one-month anniversary of The Highlanders' WWE debut on RAW. Since then, the tag team has made quite a name for themselves getting two consecutive wins before challenging the Spirit Squad for the World Tag Team Championship.

Fans caught their first glimpse of Robbie and Rory McAlister June 6 on RAW and the next few weeks with a series of videos documenting the cousins' arrival to the United States from Scotland. During their journey to WWE, they did everything from using foam Statue of Liberty crowns as beard warmers to discovering the adult entertainment on their hotel television.

WWE.com caught up with everyone's favorite Scots to see how they're adjusting to life on RAW and what their future plans hold.

"Well, it's not so much RAW we're having problems adjusting to, it's the lifestyle in general," said an enthusiastic Rory. "See, where me and Robbie come from, we have to hunt for our food - forage or whatever, you know? We chose to live the old life back home, kinda like your Amish. But here, you got your fast food joints, your burger places, your hot dogs."

Adjusting to life in the United States has not been without its consequences.

"Rory's having a hard time with hamburgers - he's getting a wee bit fat," added Robbie who's maintaining his figure by staying away from french fries.

But that's not all; simply walking down the street poses a problem for these two.

"See, where we come from, the steering wheel is on the other side of the car, and the cars are on the other side of the road," explained Rory. "Robbie here got hit four times his first week in America, because he was walking the wrong way."

Adjusting to a new lifestyle even spills over to their experiences on RAW.

"The females posing about are a problem, see, because we don't have women as beautiful back home in Scotland as you do in WWE," said Rory. "But to be honest with you, I still haven't found one with prettier legs than myself in a skirt."

Nevertheless, Robbie and Rory won't let a few cultural differences stand in the way of their goal.

"Our goal is the same goal it was before we left home, and the same goal it's always going to be, and that's become the World Tag Team Champions," said a fired up Rory.

Even though The Highlanders have yet to defeat the Spirit Squad, their determination is unfettered. In fact, they had this message for the current champs.

"You better look out because Rory and Robbie are coming. And we might just bite your face off!"
