The Good Brothers – Doc Gallows and Karl Anderson – shocked the wrestling world when they appeared on AEW Dynamite. The duo are the current Impact Wrestling Tag Team Champions and invaded Dynamite to help AEW World Champion, Kenny Omega. The three men were soon joined by The Young Bucks, and all five shared a well-known hand gesture as the show went off the air. All former members of Bullet Club in New Japan Pro-Wrestling, this reunion set the wrestling world ablaze.
Appearing on the Busted Open Radio show, Gallows referenced the hand gesture the five men shared, he said:
“That hand cramp, that hand gesture that maybe we’re not allowed to say the name of. We’re going to do it anyway.”
Known as the ‘Too Sweet,’ the hand gesture in question was reportedly part of a cease and desist issued against The Young Bucks by WWE. Reports suggest that the company claimed they own the gesture and The Bucks stopped using it soon after that.
Gallows would go on to discuss the fan reaction to the reunion and why he feels fans reacted so strongly.
“They’ve been waiting on it for years. Even in WWE, having guys come from Bullet Club, they never got that moment with the group or any variation of the group. Once Kenny raised [too sweet] up, once we threw it up, and the Bucks were hesitant but we all came together. That was the perfect way to go off the air, the shot with our hands in the air. That was good s**t.”
The Good Brothers were aligned with fellow Bullet Club luminaries, AJ Styles and Finn Balor at different points in WWE. As part of ‘The OC,’ Gallows and Anderson made their last WWE appearance at the ‘Boneyard Match’ between Styles and The Undertaker at WrestleMania in 2020.
The Good Brothers and Kenny Omega will main-event AEW’s Beach Break event in February 2021. The three men will face former AEW World Champion Jon Moxley alongside Pac and Rey Fenix.
