Impact Wrestling's Luke Gallows has revealed how he used to get away with running and working independent shows despite being under WWE contract.
Speaking on a recent episode of Talk Is Jericho, Gallows' Good Brothers tag team partner, Karl Anderson, said that 'The Big LG' was promoting shows halfway through his recent four-year run with the company. WWE shut him down, as the promotion expects exclusivity from the vast majority of its contracted wrestlers.
Gallows' solution to this? "Like any good brother would do, I just sold the promotion, changed the name, and started silently running more," he revealed.
The Good Brothers were let go from WWE as part of the promotion's mass cuts on 15 April. This came just a few months after the tandem had signed lucrative long-term deals with the market-leading promotion and it drew the ire of their friend AJ Styles, who has spoken about the situation extensively.
Impact Wrestling offered Gallows and Anderson a home following the expiration of their 90-day non-compete clauses, with the tandem debuting on July's Slammiversary pay-per-view. They have since found a featured role in something of a resurgent year for the promotion, buzz-wise.
