Earlier today, I exclusively reported how Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson signing with IMPACT Wrestling was "pretty much" a done deal. Well, in an update to that situation, I can now confirm that the deal has been done and the former WWE Tag Team Champions are IMPACT-bound.
Over the weekend, Pro Wrestling Sheet's Ryan Satin revealed how IMPACT Wrestling had been "heavily pursuing" Gallows and Anderson, offering them "incredibly strong deals" which would allow the pair to work in NJPW when it's possible for the pair to do so. Sportskeeda can confirm that the pair have signed with IMPACT Wrestling and will be able to work with NJPW as part of that contract.

Sources confirmed to myself earlier how "upcoming shows" had already been filmed regarding “TalkNShopAMania” - Gallows and Anderson's video podcast - as a side promotion, with footage also being recorded for IMPACT Plus. Both shows are scheduled to air in July.
A done deal
So, when might we see Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson debut in IMPACT Wrestling? Well, it's no secret that, as well as the other WWE talent released at the same time, Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson's WWE non-compete clauses end mid-July - meaning they cannot compete elsewhere before them.
IMPACT Wrestling's Slammiversary is scheduled to take place live on PPV on Saturday, July 18th. Teaser videos for the event have confirmed the arrival of a former World Champion and teased recently released talent from WWE appearing, using footage of Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson, among others.
Sportskeeda can confirm that the former members of the Bullet Club will debut either on or immediately after that date for IMPACT Wrestling.
