Vince McMahon was reportedly considering bringing back a pair of former champions.
According to Mike Johnson of PWInsider, now-former WWE Chairman, Vince McMahon was pondering the thought of bringing back former WWE Tag Team Champions, Doc Gallows, and Karl Anderson of the Good Brothers.
Per the report, WWE sent feelers out to the pair within the past few months, looking to bring the former champions back to the company. However, it appears as if talks between the company and Gallows and Anderson fizzled out after Vince McMahon resigned as Chairman of WWE.
The resignation followed allegations of ‘hush money payments’ in excess of $19 million to cover up alleged sexual misconduct incidents that occurred with a number of former female employees and on-screen talent.
Both Gallows and Anderson were released by the company in 2020 due to ‘budget cuts’ but the pair didn’t waste any time in getting busy upon their return to the independent scene. The pair even hosted their own pay-per-view event in the form of Talk ‘N Shop A Mania before their second event, Talk ‘N Shop A Mania II: Rise of The Torturer.
The Good Brothers have also competed in NJPW as well as claiming the Lariato Pro Wrestling Tag Team Titles in addition to securing the IMPACT Wrestling World Tag Team Titles on two separate occasions.
It was reported that both Gallows and Anderson’s deals with IMPACT Wrestling will be expiring sometime in the next few weeks as the pair were ‘wrapping up’ with IMPACT following their defeat against Honor No More at the promotion’s ‘Emergence’ event, earlier this month.
Inside The Ropes will provide any updates on the status of Gallows and Anderson as they become available.
