The Good Brothers first signed with the WWE in 2016 and enjoyed a pretty successful run in the company before their release in 2020. They even won the RAW Tag Team Championships twice. Following their departure from WWE, Gallows and Anderson plied their trade in the Indies before returning to WWE last year to help AJ Styles fight The Judgment Day. Since their return, there has been a lot of speculation about their contract status.
Fightful Select has now reported that Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows signed long-term deals with WWE. While many returning Superstars were offered three-year deals, The Good Brothers signed a five-year deal with the company.
This means that their contracts will be up in late 2027. The reason given for their deals being longer than the others was that it was Triple H who helped negotiate their decision to stay in 2019 and felt bad when they were released prematurely.
“Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows are locked up for quite some time, Fightful Select has learned.
If you were expecting anything short term out of The OC/Bullet Club/Good Brothers combination, that doesn’t look to be the case. When asking within WWE about the length of some WWE deals, Fightful Select had learned that many are three-year deals, expiring in mid-to-late 2025. Not The OC’s, according to sources familiar with the situation.
Fightful was told that Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows are both under five-year WWE contracts that have them set to stay with the company until late 2027. When we asked about why the deals were longer than others we’ve heard about, one higher up said that Triple H had helped negotiate their decision in 2019 to stay with the company over AEW, NJPW and IMPACT, and felt badly that they were released prematurely.”
It is good to see Triple H doing right by The Good Brothers by offering them longer contracts to make up for their premature release. It remains to be seen if they stay till the end of their contracts, given that Vince McMahon has returned to the company. Stay tuned to Ringside News as we bring you similar stories.
