“The reason we stayed was to be there and ride with our buddy. We ended up being released when the pandemic hit, but I couldn’t blame him. He couldn’t see the future. He just wanted to do what. it was better for his friend and it was to convince us to stay, and we ended up staying, but no one forced us to do anything. ”
Gallows reiterated that there was no hard feelings towards Styles and that their decision to re-sign was theirs alone. Styles had previously admitted that he still felt bothered by Gallows and Anderson’s outings.
“In the end, we made that decision, good or bad,” Gallows said. “So there is no hard feelings at all. AJ called me after 20 minutes when it was online, and we talked. I told him what I’m telling you now. I don’t blame anyone for everything that has happened in my career, and at the end of the day you have to look at yourself in the rearview mirror. It only became a huge positive. You can’t look in the rearview mirror, you have to keep moving. ”
Gallows and Anderson are now signed with Impact Wrestling. He explained his relationship with Impact co-executive president Scott D’Amore as the reason they signed with Impact.
“Karl and I both have a long history with Scott D’Amore,” Gallows noted. “Scott helped me when I left TNA years ago to go to New Japan. Scott put me in touch with these people, making a really good deal for me at the time. He has always been an associate but also a good friend. They came up with a really nice offer with an unlimited timeframe, but the best part was that the people at IMPACT were very much in favor of co-promoting our brand. ”
He also spoke about how each party has a mutually beneficial relationship where Gallows and Anderson promote Impact and Impact helps promote the Talk’N Shop brand of Gallows and Anderson. He explained why this was such a big deal for him and Anderson.
“We want to promote their brand, and they wanted to promote ours, so they promoted the ‘Talk’n Shop’ podcast. They help us promote our ‘Talk’n Shop’ PPV, our ‘Talk’n Shop’ beer that we come up with, ”Gallows revealed. “With everything we have in the works, it’s really nice to be on board with someone who wants to help you with your outdoor projects because with the motto of WWE there isn’t a lot of room to this type of promotion and especially to do it in their TV show. It was really a big deal for me. At the end of the day Karl and I felt like this was the right place to go. ”
Gallows was asked about the legacy he hopes he can leave behind. Gallows says he’s “the original good brother” and hopes he was able to entertain the fans while being a “good brother”.
“I hope I was able to entertain you. I’m the original good brother, ”Gallows said. “Everyone uses that phrase in business now to talk about the way people are and things like that, so be a good brother and sister and you’ll be fine. ”
