WWE Rumor Killer: Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows may not be released by WWE
What's the story?
There were rumours going around that former RAW Tag Team Champions Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson were released by WWE. However, from the look of things, that may not be the case — at least for now. A recent thread on Reddit gave proof of the entire story being blown out of proportion.
In case you didn't know...
The rumour going around was that The Good Brothers were set to be released as part of WWE's release spree. The early word was from Dave Meltzer on the Wrestling Observer Radio who stated that there had been signs on TV that the end was nigh for Gallows & Anderson.
Apart from this, a thread on Reddit detailed how Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows also removed all WWE mentions from their Twitter bios.
The heart of the matter
Reddit user u/theboatleft created a thread on the Squared Circle subreddit detailing why the story of Anderson & Gallows' release from WWE was untrue.
Firstly, the story about their Twitter bio changing was either untrue or blown out of proportion. Luke Gallows' bio on Twitter and has stayed the same since September. As for Karl Anderson, there was a minor tweak made to his profile on October 23rd.
However, perhaps the most important thing derailing this rumour is the fact that Karl Anderson tweeted right after RAW this past Monday and was en route the European tour for RAW.
That seems to put to rest any rumours about The Good Brothers leaving WWE for now.
The former RAW Tag Team Champions will be drifting back and forth creatively as WWE doesn't really seem to have anything planned for them apart from using them as enhancement talent.
While it is frustrating to see how WWE has severely underutilised Anderson & Gallows since their debut, it's still good to hear that they aren't losing their jobs there. Another side of it is that the two are in their home country, earning well and living close to their families.
Not to mention, the duo seems to be having a lot of fun at WWE regardless of how they've been treated creatively. Ultimately, that's all a performer can ask for at times.
