Latest On Karl Anderson & Luke Gallows Potentially Returning To NJPW

Here's the latest

An update has surfaced online regarding the futures of Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson.

The two stars were released from WWE last week when the company decided to make mass firing of staff and talent. The wrestlers who were released are now under a 90-day non-compete clause, which prevents them from officially signing a deal with any promotions.

Since being let go, Anderson and Gallows have gone back to the gimmicks that they portrayed in NJPW (New Japan Pro Wrestling) on social media. 

It was reported by Dave Meltzer in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that NJPW has not offered contracts to Gallows and Anderson that would see them make a return to the promotion. 

It should be noted that NJPW hasn’t held a show since March due to the outbreak of the coronavirus. Meltzer noted that if NJPW wasn’t dealing with the financial impact of the virus, “such a deal would be a given as far as getting an offer to return.”

Thus, it’s possible when NJPW starts running shows again, perhaps a deal will be offered to Anderson and Gallows. 

Anderson and Gallows had reportedly turned down lucrative five-year deals due to being unhappy last year. 

There was speculation that they would leave the company in the fall once their contracts expired. That changed when WWE offered them more money and they signed new deals.
