Following their return on WWE Raw, The Good Brothers appear to once again be back in the mainstream – unless you ask Jim Cornette, that is.
Jim Cornette doesn’t have high hopes for The Good Brothers in WWE.
Speaking on the latest Jim Cornette Experience podcast, the acclaimed wrestling personality stated that Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows, once the most popular tandem in Japanese wrestling, won’t even be as much as a “game changer” during their second WWE run:
“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 ignite the houses or the ratings right off but [it] is better than [Chad] 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 a little bit more of a crowded field.
They [WWE] 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. And instead, that’s when, at that point in time was when 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 [to] keep people.
And that’s [what] 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 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.”
The Good Brothers returned to WWE on the 10 October Monday Night Raw, reuniting with AJ Styles in his battle against The Judgement Day. The length of their new WWE deals is unknown.
Previously part of the IMPACT Wrestling roster, they officially departed the Anthem-helmed promotion following a loss to The Motor City Machine Guns. The duo has also been appearing regularly for New Japan Pro-Wrestling, where Karl Anderson is the NEVER Openweight Champion. He’s expected to be allowed to finish his commitments there.
