What's the story?

In a recent interview on The Steve Austin Show, one half of The Club, Luke Gallows, spoke about a number of things, including how he was hired by the WWE, his travel partner and his Impact Wrestling run.

In case you didn't know...

This is Gallows' second run with the WWE. He first debuted as a member of CM Punk's Straight Edge Society as Festus and later Luke Gallows.

The heart of the matter

In an interview on The Steve Austin Show, Luke Gallows addressed a number of issues regarding the way the WWE hired him, his Impact Wrestling run, and the people he travels with during tour.

He said, "I called Tommy Dreamer and Johnny Ace every week, like, ‘Hey guys, you should probably hire me – I’m pretty good.’ I was having the bulls–t matches in West Virginia against guys in furniture stores and stuff! Terrible! So finally they were opening Deep South and I think they needed to fill it and I wouldn’t leave them alone, so I somehow got my ass in there after three years of terrible indies."

"It’s always us and a rotating third or fourth. We get each other so well from when we first clicked, so sometimes Finn Bálor, sometimes Curt Hawkins. We were on SmackDown, so it was always AJ. And then, we had Jinder for a while and he left to go to SmackDown and blew up. And we always do good, but we’re always together no matter what. I just think AJ and Jinder put up with us because we were funny and silly when we were reading," he stated about his various travel partners.

Gallows also touched upon a more interesting subject, specifically his Impact Wrestling run. He was quoted saying, "It was fun. I don’t want to bury anybody there. It was a lot of fun and I had a lot of fun," he continued, "So I had a lot of fun there. I didn’t make a lot of money, but it was a lot of fun. It was a one-year run and then they were having their issues or whatever.”

He also spoke about other things, including pitching a 'hillbilly' gimmick to Impact's creative team and working with Hulk Hogan which he suggested was an awesome experience.

What's next?

Gallows currently seems to be in a dead end with the WWE, along with his partner Karl Anderson. The two seem to be going nowhere in the tag-team division and many fans will be wondering to see how their characters develop.

Author's take

It's amazing to hear about the numerous experiences that a wrestler like Luke Gallows has had, and despite all the experience he has it seems that his current run with the WWE is going nowhere. Hopefully, the WWE do something with Anderson & Gallows soon, or they might take their talents somewhere else.
