On the October 10th episode of Monday Night Raw the Good Brothers, Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows became the latest former stars to return to WWE. Now Jim Cornette has had his say on the comeback.
After defeating Edge at Extreme Rules Finn Balor came to the ring to gloat over his victory before again turning his attention to AJ Styles. The Prince has been trying to convince his friend to join the Judgment Day in recent weeks but admitted that his patience was now wearing thin.
After Styles came to the ring he said that Balor was right, and he was fed up of having to try and fight all on his own. At this Styles kneeled before Balor and then embraced him, seemingly joining the group. However, he quickly revealed that he wasn’t talking about joining Judgment Day, instead he brought out Gallows and Anderson.
Jim Cornette Believes The New Additions Won’t Make Much Impact
Speaking on his podcast, The Jim Cornette Experience, the legendary manager dismissed the return of the pair commenting that it won’t be a “game changer.” Cornette suggested that the duo had been re-signed as part of Triple H attempting to right the wrongs of Vince McMahon’s tenure.
“I mean, you’d be surprised who people are interested in. There’s somebody interested in everybody. But with Gallows and Anderson no, it’s not going to be a game changer. It’s not going to you know, ignite the houses or the ratings right off but is better than Gable and Otis. I mean, come on, seriously.
You know, look at the field now. Even when they, Gallows and Anderson, they, too many pronouns pal, when they left, what, three years ago? Or almost. It was, you know, a little bit more of a crowded field. They had more talent that you could say, okay, that guy with proper use could be something or do something. And remember also, I think Triple H was probably wanting to rectify what they did under the previous administration, because they were guys that had a chance to go to AEW, and sign with them.
Instead, that’s when, at that point in time was when you know, the WWE hadn’t seen what AEW was going to be and was hearing a billionaire is going to be on TBS, and blah, blah, blah, and they were making big offers, keep people. And that’s Gallows and Anderson signed for what was it 750 grand a year for, I don’t know, two or three years or whatever the f*ck. And then the pandemic comes around the three months later, and they f*cking cut them.
So I said at the time, if I was them for that much money, and honour the contract for three months, and we didn’t go elsewhere where they would honour the contract, I would have taken at the very least explosive devices to Main Street in Stanford.”
Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows were previously signed to WWE from 2016 until 2020. During this period the pair starred alongside AJ Styles and won the Raw Tag Team Titles twice.
