Earlier in the week, WWE went on a releasing spree, as the company let-go over 30 superstars and backstage personnel off their contracts.
Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows turned out to be two of the most unexpected names on that list and while Anderson did tease the possibility of a return to New Japan Pro Wrestling, their former stablemate AJ Styles has now finally reacted to the news of their release.
During his recent live-stream on Mixer, ‘The Phenomenal One’ finally opened up on the release of The Good Brothers, as Styles claimed that he felt it was his responsibility to take care of Gallows and Anderson in WWE and was devastated when the news initially broke out.
“If you guys didn’t know, Gallows and Anderson, guys who were like my brothers were released yesterday and that one hurt. That one hurt really bad. Really bad. Umm, the only way I know I can explain this is that these guys are my family and I couldn’t take care of my own brothers, you know what I’m saying? Like that’s what I feel about it. I’m the eldest. I’m supposed to take care of them and I didn’t do that and I feel responsible in some weird way for them being released. It’s devastating. I don’t know any other way to explain it, like.”
