It has reportedly been revealed that IMPACT Wrestling reached out to The Good Brothers within 15 minutes of their WWE release.
Doc Gallows and Karl Anderson were released by WWE on April 15th 2020 as part of the WWE’s budget cuts stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic.
According to Fightful Select, IMPACT Co-Executive Vice President Scott D’Amore spoke to Doc Gallows almost immediately after the news broke to assess the team’s availability.
The report notes that D’Amore acted quickly to let Gallows know that he was interested in bringing in the duo.
“Gallows tells us that Scott D’Amore reached out to him within 15 minutes of their releases and let them know he was still interested in bringing them in, and for the same offer the company made in 2019 when the two were impending free agents.”
Speaking in October, Gallows explained that while he was shocked to be let go, he wasn’t angry at the decision.
The pair would announce that they had signed with IMPACT in July, and made their debut with the company at Slammiversary. The Good Brothers won the IMPACT Tag Team Titles at Turning Point, less than a handful of months later.
The team would go on to make their AEW debuts in shocking fashion reuniting The Bullet Club, at AEW Dynamite New Years Smash, night one.
The show went off the air with a Too Sweet as AEW World Champion Kenny Omega, IMPACT Tag Team Champions The Good Brothers and AEW Tag Team Champions The Young Bucks got the band back together on Dynamite, and sent a message to the entire world of professional wrestling.
The Good Brothers would eventually lose the IMPACT Tag Team Titles to FinJuice at IMPACT Sacrifce. However, the pair will attempt to regain the gold, at IMPACT Rebellion on April 25th.
