Latest On Gallows & Anderson’s WWE Contract StatusJuly 2, 2019 0 By Tim Jarrell
It looks like big things are planned for the former RAW Tag Team Champions.
When Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson came to the WWE in 2016 WWE brought them in and made them look strong quickly. They were teamed with AJ Styles as The Club early on, but that was short lived when WWE implemented the draft. Styles was drafted to Smackdown Live as Gallows and Anderson were sent to Monday Night RAW.
While on RAW Gallows and Anderson would go on to win the RAW Tag Team Championships at the 2017 Royal Rumble. They would hold the title for only a few months before losing them at WrestleMania 33 in a ladder match that saw the Hardy Boys return to the company and win the titles. Since then WWE basically did nothing of note with the two.
They were moved to Smackdown Live in 2018 and one would think they could be linked with AJ Styles again but that did not happen. AJ Styles was a babyface and Gallows and Anderson remains heels and was hardly used at all.
Following this year’s WrestleMania the two were moved back over to Monday Night RAW and so was former WWE Champion AJ Styles. Over the last few weeks, we saw teases of the three being paired back up together with AJ disappointed at the lack of success Gallows and Anderson have had. They actually have not won a match on television since May 2018.
Last night on Monday Night RAW they hyped AJ Styles up and got him to challenge Ricochet for the United States Championship. After Styles was unable to capture the title it looked like Gallows and Anderson was going to attack Styles and Ricochet. Instead, Styles would attack Ricochet and lead Gallows and Anderson in beating down the United States Champion. At the end of the show, the three stood over Ricochet as Styles said, “We are The Club.”
With WWE now using Gallows and Anderson again in a prominent role on Raw, it leads one to believe that things may have changed as far as them wanting out of the company. Previous reports were that the two turned down new multi-year deals and were looking to leave this fall.
According to Mike Johnson of PWInsider, Johnson reports that the feeling backstage is that Gallows and Anderson, who have been upset with the way they have been used have agreed to stay with the company. The reports state that it cannot be confirmed if the two have signed new deals yet or have just only agreed to in the near future.
Also on Wrestling Observer Radio, Bryan Alvarez and Dave Meltzer both referred to Gallows and Anderson as two guys who are not going anywhere. Not going anywhere as far as not leaving the company.
