Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson were released by WWE during the recent budget cuts. This came months after they signed five-year contracts with the company, worth $750,000 annually. Fans have been wondering what is next for the two.
During Talkin’ Shop, they discussed the recent mass exodus, which they were a part of. Karl Anderson said that every person who was fired was a friend and no one was disliked.
“A lot of times when you see these things come out, like, as guys in the business we’ll go, ‘Yeah, f*ck him a little bit.’ But I can honestly say on that list there was nobody that I genuinely didn’t like.”
“As we said, it was a crushing day in the professional wrestling world. But the professional wrestling world always goes on. So please support these guys, follow their social media, go to their Pro Wrestling Tees stores. Show them some love. Because when the world opens back up, you’ve got a bunch of brothers who are coming at you and it’s gonna be so damn entertaining, and I can’t wait to see where everybody lands next.”
Gallows then confirmed that they will remain a team. We will have to see where they go next. Anderson recently teased about going to NJPW, so we might see them return there.
