Karl Anderson has offered some words of advice for the latest Superstars to be released by WWE as only he can.
Anderson and his tag team partner Doc Gallows signed with WWE in April 2016 after a hugely successful run with New Japan Pro Wrestling. The pair who had previously been part of the Bullet Club, later formed ‘The O.C’ with fellow Bullet Club alumni AJ Styles.
However, after two RAW Tag Team Title reigns the duo were released in April 2020.
Speaking on Talk’n Shop, Anderson had some choice words for those who had just met the same fate, telling the now free agents to “put together a plan of attack before you start thanking these motherf***ers.”
“We know what it’s like to get canned from WWE. Here’s the advice I would say; enough of the ‘thank you’ tweets. Give me a fucking break. When you get canned, let it go. How about hashtag ‘fuck off.’ I don’t think less than 24 hours after being fired…take a second to take a breather. Take it easy with the thank you bullshit within 24 hours. Breathe it in and take it all in for just one second. Put together a plan of attack before you start thanking all these motherfuckers that fired you because…people give Jim Ross a lot of heat, but I have respect for Jim Ross because, when we got canned, he said, ‘There’s a reason why WWE decided to not do business with these individuals anymore.’ It’s as true as it can get and Thank God. We made the most money we’ve ever made in our lives this past year and that’s after WWE,”
After leaving WWE, The Good Brothers wasted little time in signing with IMPACT Wrestling. According to reports IMPACT contacted the duo within 15 minutes of their release.
The pair later made their debut with the company at Slammiversary. Winning 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.
The Good Brothers would eventually lose the IMPACT Tag Team Titles to FinJuice at IMPACT Sacrifce.
