The Good Brothers wrestled for Impact Wrestling after their WWE releases, and are three-time Impact World Tag Team Champions. It looks like The Good Brothers are headed for WWE.
According to PW Insider, The Good Brothers are likely headed for the WWE. There is a widespread perception within the company that the former Tag Team Champions of the WWE, IWGP, and Impact Wrestling will be returning to the Raw brand as early as this month, which probably means resuming their previous alliance with AJ Styles.
Gallows, Anderson, and Styles were all recently seen together in Washington, DC, most likely filming for WWE. Given that Styles and The Judgement Day have recently been at conflict, it makes reasonable that Gallows and Anderson would support him. This is especially true given their shared past.
Last August, Gallows and Anderson lost their final match with Impact to The Motor City Machine Guns at a TV taping in Dallas, Texas. Although their contracts were really set to expire in July, they agreed to add a few more dates. After leaving Impact, their strategy was to concentrate on New Japan Pro Wrestling, at least through Wrestle Kingdom, as there had been internal discussions about having Anderson compete in a high-profile singles match at the yearly January Tokyo Dome event.
WWE previously made overtures to the duo as their Impact contracts were about to expire under the Vince McMahon era. When Gallows and Anderson made it plain they weren’t interested in returning for anything less than a significant financial premium, according to WWE sources at the time, negotiations fell through.
The pair had already suffered a company blow when, in 2019, they turned down an offer to join AEW as that promotion started in favor of signing fresh five-year WWE contracts. The pair got a contract with WWE in 2019, however at the height of the COVID-19 outbreak, they were among those abruptly let go after WrestleMania 37. The most recent discussions between the parties ended without a settlement being reached because the parties were at a financial impasse.
Recently, the discussions were restarted because it is clear that the administration of WWE is now in a completely different environment. As Bullet Club members, Gallows and Anderson most recently participated in The Royal Quest II weekend in London, England for New Japan. Anderson is scheduled to defend the NEVER Openweight Championship against Hikuleo in the 11/5 New Japan Pro Wrestling event in Osaka, Japan.
From 2016 to 2020, the pair worked for WWE, transitioning from New Japan to WWE alongside AJ Styles. Beyond working alongside Anderson as member of The Club, Gallows has had multiple prior WWE stints. He has performed as Festus, a Kane imitation, and a member of CM Punk’s Straightedge Society, among other guises. Anderson had a lengthy career with New Japan Pro Wrestling, competing both as a singles wrestler and as a member of Bad Intentions. Stay tuned to Ringside News for the latest updates.
