Having regained the World Tag Team Championships, it appears The Good Brothers may be sticking around with IMPACT Wrestling for the foreseeable.
In a shocking move, The Good Brothers have become IMPACT World Tag Team Champions for the third time. Doc Gallows and Karl Anderson usurped The Briscoes to lift the titles during the Slammiversary pay-per-view, ending Jay and Mark Briscoe’s reign at just 43 days.

One of the stories surrounding the twentieth anniversary of IMPACT Wrestling has been the contractual status of The Good Brothers. The duo signed two-year contracts when they came into the Anthem-helmed promotion at Slammiversary 2020, meaning they’re due to expire in just a matter of weeks.
During an interview with PWInsider, Doc Gallows confirmed that it was “contract season” for him and Karl Anderson. PWInsider’s Mike Johnson would also confirm that The Good Brothers’ contracts will expire in “late July”. When, exactly, that is remains unknown, though their first official date in the company was 18 July.
Debuting at the end of the 2020 Slammiversary pay-per-view following their WWE release, Doc Gallows and Karl Anderson have become a staple of IMPACT Wrestling’s tag team division. They previously held the World Tag Team Championships for 119 and 231 days, respectively, with the second of those reigns seeing the titles defended on All Elite Wrestling programming.
Gallows and Anderson were formerly regulars in AEW alongside The Elite, and more recently in New Japan Pro-Wrestling, where they’ve officially rejoined Bullet Club. Karl Anderson is currently the NEVER Openweight Champion after defeating former Bullet Club brethren Tama Tonga for the title.
