WWE is a complicated workplace and many people can attest to that. The inherently political nature of the past year only made things worse. Karl Anderson & Doc Gallows made their way to WWE in 2016, after having a tremendous run in NJPW, where they became the tag team champions. It seems Doc Gallows made an interesting claim recently.
The Good Brothers certainly had an impactful debut in WWE as they took out the Usos on the April 11, 2016 episode of Monday Night RAW. They then did the same to Roman Reigns the following week.
Karl Anderson had a hard time adjusting to how WWE operated once he arrived at the company. Earlier this year, Karl Anderson even called WWE political asylum, adding that it was hard to fit in.
While speaking on a recent episode of the MCW Cast, Doc Gallows talked about his time in WWE. Doc Gallows claimed he heard a philosophy in WWE that they wanted to control all of the independent promotions and have everything produced through them.
“I did hear this; I’m not gonna drop anything here but I mean I know at one point, there was a philosophy in WWE when I was working there that they basically wanted to control all the indies and have everything self-produced through them. This was before AEW had officially launched and that was kind of the plan.
They were trying to buy, like say Ring of Honor for example. I don’t know if that’s one of ‘em but they probably tried. Luckily these people held out, they said no. AEW happens and now we’re sitting, it’s fruitful for everybody which is really important because if it’s a monopoly, we all know it’s boring, it’s less interesting to watch.”
Karl Anderson and Doc Gallows were let go by WWE in April of last year. Since then, they signed with Impact Wrestling and are now a regular feature on Impact Wrestling, NJPW and AEW television. They are also the Impact World Tag Team Champions and are more than happy with their current position.
