Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson are coming to Slammiversary tonight. But before that, the two men decided to spill the beans on what led to their WWE departure and the person responsible for their release in April was none other than Paul Heyman.
Many people, including Gallows & Anderson themselves, did not believe that they were going to be released by WWE. The Good Brothers addressed their situation in a tell-all episode of Talk N’ Shop and revealed a number of details about their WWE tenure.
Last year, before inking a new deal with the company, Gallows & Anderson came very close to going to AEW. However, they were convinced by AJ Styles and Triple H to stay back in the company.
Triple H told Karl Anderson that he has to think about his kids and that AEW might “not last” while WWE, on the other hand, would always be there. Anderson felt like this conversation with Triple H wasn’t happening between a boss and an employee but between two humans.
However, shortly after receiving his shocking release from the company, Anderson concluded that the company didn’t really “give a f*ck”.
Triple H looked at me and he was like, ‘Dude, I look at you and I see your kids and I think about what if, AEW doesn’t last. You know, I can promise you one thing, WWE will always be here.’
And it’s like I thought we stopped being like, you know, boss and f*cking employee at that point and we became, obviously not friends, but at least for a second, we were two humans talking.
And I am not saying that Triple H could have called somebody or stopped anything or knew anything or even cared. But that just, hearing that from your boss and seeing something like that happen was like ‘God damn, they don’t give a f*ck’.
Anderson and Gallows have a new chapter ahead of them and their new deals with Impact allow them to perform in NJPW as well. The Good Brothers have left WWE behind them and they don’t intend to return anytime soon.
