Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson turn down new WWE deal

Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson

The Club joined the WWE back in 2016, debuting a few months after AJ Styles. Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson came into the company with an incredible amount of hype, and it was assumed that they’d quickly find themselves at the top of the tag team division.

While they did manage to capture tag team gold, their one reign wasn’t too long, and they’ve spent most of their time in the company jobbing to other duos. However, they’re still a team that could do wonders outside of the WWE, whether they decided to return to NJPW, or make a run in Impact Wrestling or All Elite Wrestling. And it looks like that’s the plan.

According to Mike Johnson of PWInsider, Gallows and Anderson have turned down multi-million-dollar deals from the WWE and plan on leaving when their current contracts expire around September. Though there’s quite a bit of time between now and then, the former Raw Tag Team Champions seem pretty adamant about their decision.

    Good for them. WWE is a joke and clearly doesnt know how to treat talent , awesome competitors, just awful minds and writing. Like to see them get a run in AEW

    While this is true, WWE does not use that talent intelligently. If they had any sense, instead of working a handful of guys week in and week out until they end up on the shelf injured, they could spend say four months or so with a bunch of guys in the spotlight, then let them have a couple of months off and others could step up for a few months and rotate talent like this.
    There is no need to have Seth Rollins on every RAW for instance, and if he was given time off every so often, maybe they would not have to wait until he was injured to rest him.
    Seth could spend some time at the top, then when he is being rested, Balor could step into his position, then when its his time to be rested someone else can take the role until Rollins returns.

    Resting top talent would not hurt their momentum if done correctly and would stop instances where WWE has to panic book because someone is too injured to work because there will always be someone to step into that void.
    Book your show around the same two people and you end up with what we have now.

    They likely were supposed to be a big tag team but no one expected New Day to blow up like they did.. they weren’t on the plans to be the top team but people loved them and alot of other teams suffered during their one year reign.

    What I don’t understand is why WWE didn’t pair the Club with Balor. They teased for a day but that’s it. They haven’t done much with Balor and together they could have done something.

    Well like any story that has come out recently about contracts, you can only take this as one persons rumour, and nowhere near fact. In the same day two guys who are supposedly close buddies reported opposite stories on the contract situation with Styles, so from that we can 100% see that the so called “sources” all seem to have different info, and whoever talks to who gets a totally different story.

    And even if it is true, it still means nothing as they might fully intend on re-signing but they are using this as a bargaining tool. If they rush in and sign the first contract offered, they will not necessarily get the best deal. Make out like you are gonna go elsewhere, and potentially better deals might be offered.

    Kinda hard to have everyone in the spotlight when u have 100+ talent.
    People still don’t understand this….

  • Kayfabe_Is_Dead

    Kinda don’t blame them… WWE have been such momentum-killers with a lot of talent lately.
